Fachoda complex is a lightweight flight simulator.

The objective is to make as much money as possible by destroying as many enemies as you can. From time to time rewards are offered for destruction of a given target (be it friend or foe), flagged in the map with a small magenta skull. As you have to pay for every bullet you’d better go for these before a computer controlled plane or tank does it. You can also make a few bucks by targeting civilians at random. You are not allowed to hurt the cows, though.

You need to return to your home base and park to refuel and repair your plane. There you can also buy a better plane by parking your plane close to an unused one you can afford and press F10.

Each time you earn or lose money the new balance is written in front of the screen (blue for credits or red for debits, then white for the actual balance).

Whenever your plane get shot down you will take the control of another plane that's flying on your side and which value is less or equal to the one you just left, until there's no more and the game is over. When respawning, though, the Lord takes all your money but $55.

Your final score is the maximal return on investment achieved during the whole play.

Snophill, a red biplane with no bombing facilities

Additional Info
Here is Fachoda complex, a lightweight combat flight simulator.

It's an SDL game (no 3D acceleration here), yet it runs very well with good framerates.
The game is quite complex, and has many keys. I adapted the key layout to the Pandora. Still, the handling is not super easy.

Note: the Nubs are changed to "FPS Mode": Left as Joystick, Right as Mouse. You can change this behavour by changing the content of the files left_nub and right_nub of appdata/fachoda folder.

History log

I gave this a 3... but I think the game itself is a bit bad cannot get into it. I think there must be better more fun flight sims out there!

Terrible graphics and I do not like the control. 2/5....sorry. Very lightweight sim indeed.
