Codex Gamicus

Tiny Combat Arena is an action flight simulation game developed by Why485 and MicroProse Software and published by MicroProse Software. It was released on Steam for Microsoft Windows on February 22, 2022.


Tiny Combat Arena is an approachable combat flight simulator sporting a stylized look and various game modes. Dogfight your way in the Arena and in Quick Action or craft your own scenarios and take part in a vast war with objectives and friendly armies to support.


The game serves as a labor-of-love combat flight simulator that aims to be a hybrid of a simulator and an approachable, customizable, air combat experience in a stylized look representing a fictional Cold War-era conflict.

The game is about flying, dogfighting, and close air support. Simulation elements are added to the game in service of creating gameplay, using simulation inspired mechanics, such as boosting a missile's range by launching from above the target.

The game lets the player jump in and fly by quickly assembling various types of missions. They can take a placid stroll around the scenery, configure a team vs team dogfight against aircraft of their choosing, or strike objectives with ground units to attack and support.

In arena mode, players can plan their moves on the strategic map; pick objectives, identify threats, choose which units to support, and where to make a difference.

The in-game database provides players with not only detailed statistics on vehicles, aircraft, and weapons, but also to give tactical guidance on how to approach different aircraft and respond to different threats.
