Wright Brothers: Sky Machine Walkthrough

On December 17, 1903 , Orville and Wilbur Wright made the first powered flight of a heavier-than-air aircraft over the beaches of Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. Wright Brothers: Sky Machine is a distance game that takes this historical fact and runs wild with it. This airplane game features simple, one-button controls, amazing graphics, and a somewhat eerie atmosphere.

At the start of Wright Brothers: Sky Machine, you can choose to play as Orville or Wilbur Wright (both portraits have an almost spooky visage to them). The character that you select has no effect on the actual gameplay, so choose either one (I chose Orville because mustaches are manly and awesome). Once you have chosen your character, get ready to remake history in this airplane game!

The objective of Wright Brothers: Sky Machine is to fly as far as possible. You are given three flights. After the third flight, your total distance is added and can be submitted as your score. There are no upgrades to buy or destinations to reach in this airplane game; simply go as far as you can!

All commands in Wright Brothers: Sky Machine are controlled by the left mouse button. At the beginning of each launch, you must use the left mouse button to stop the angle gauge and the power gauge. For maximum distance, it is best to stop the angle meter in the middle and the power meter at maximum. When in flight, you can press the left mouse button to activate your booster, provided that you have fuel. Boosting pitches your nose downward, so it should be avoided unless you are already in a dive. Boosting on the ground causes you to jump back in the air, which is useful for squeezing just a bit more distance out of your flight.

Wright Brothers: Sky Machine may not be historically accurate, but it is a rip-roaring good time! The simplicity and brevity of this airplane game make it perfect for casual gamers with a few minutes to pass!
