Sid Meier and Firaxis Games (Civilization series, XCOM: Enemy Unknown) are releasing a new cel-shaded World War I mobile game.

Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol was built from the ground up as an iOS title, and features historical WWI aircrafts that can be flown through 120 different missions. It boasts single-player, two-player hot-pad, and asynchronous multiplayer modes. And while a game about aerial dogfights, it’s not without the company’s trademark emphasis on strategy.

“There will be some scenarios where you might be able to muscle your way through them without thinking strategically, but if you do that it’ll be like in XCOM where you lose three memobers of your squad and you have a guy who’s wounded for 14 days,” associate producer Pete Murray told Polygon. “It’s like, yes, you finished the mission, good job, but you did something fundamentally wrong.”

The British campaign will be available through the iTunes App Store May 9 for $0.99.
