Welcome to Cover Art! A section of the site where we look at a retro video game’s box cover art and briefly discuss it’s gameplay and legacy.
Wing War was developed by Imagic, a somewhat popular developer in the 80’s. They released Wing War for several systems including Colecovision and Atari 2600 in 1983. As you can guess, you play a dragon in the game.
In Wing War, you play a dragon who needs to capture a diamond. In order to do that you need to collect crystals, which then form into a super crystal unlocking areas for you to find the diamond. It may not sound like much, but it’s actually a pretty cool game with rather impressive level design and graphics, considering the time.
