Jet Lancer is a high-speed air combat game, similar to Luftrausers (and much older inertia shooting games like Virus/Zarch), where you pilot giant robots to deal with Sky Pirates. The novelty here is the nuanced and instinctive control of the craft. The speed and the unusual controls can flummox players at first, but give it time and it soon clicks.

You can opt to toggle rather than hold down buttons for shooting. You can adjust the deadzone sensitivity. You can choose different steering types.
