You're tasked with defending your people against an evil empire by defeating the squadrons of warplanes they send against your lands. From your plane, you shoot down enemy after enemy as you progress ever deeper into their territory, performing quick barrel rolls and dodges to avoid incoming fire.
By swiping and holding down on the screen, you move about and shoot down the planes ahead of you in each of the over fifty levels set in six distinct biomes, from icy tundra to sunny fields and villages. As you progress, you collect coins to unlock weapon upgrades, and new types of firepower. During the later stages, it becomes ever harder to stay on top of the multiple assailants and attacks on the screen; keeping your wits about you and coming up with ambitious strategies, fast reactions and good instincts is essential.
The result is a fast-paced and riotous mix of precise gameplay and deep strategy as you vie to remain in control of the ever-more deadly skies. It's a classic formula, but one not often found on smartphones.
You can play this game in the following styles:
Rated 9+ on the Apple App Store for Infrequent/Mild Cartoon or Fantasy Violence.
9+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. The later levels can be very chaotic and require precise rolls and dodges, as well as fast-paced and well-executed attacks.
You control the position of your plane by moving your finger around the screen and can do barrel rolls, which move you quickly in a given direction, by swiping the way you want to go. It's a very fast-paced game, and quickly reacting to and avoiding attacks is essential, and you need to hold down on the screen to shoot and move. You can adjust the sensitivity of these touch controls.
There are difficulty settings, but this is mainly to make things harder rather than easier. You start on Easy and can unlock Medium and Hard for each level. As you play the game pops up tips of what's coming up, power-ups, enemies and so on.
Text is high contrast and generally of good size. Some button text and scoring is much smaller. Main subtitles are larger but some secondary dialogue offering tips is much smaller.
Especially in later levels, where there are more objects on the screen, it can be very difficult to distinguish enemies from other objects, adding to the already substantial challenge. There are significant screen shake and flash effects when you defeat enemies or are hit.
