timeless retro shooter.. Brilliant retro arcade shooter, lot of fun and its fairly balanced, except bosses, they're too OP! But you dont have play the boss levels so i always skip it. I hope the devs add more levels as the app hasen't recieved any updates in 8 months now. Maybe they're working on Luftwaffe 2!! If your're bored try Sky Force 2014 / Reloaded!
Previously this used to be an amazing top down arcade shooter. Now it takes ages to collect enough of the in game currency to buy new levels. It also seems that the difficulty was increased to force you to spend money to upgrade your plane. HandyGames seem more interested in selling you the paid version of the game (Which still includes IAPs by the way) instead of providing a rewarding experience.
Feels dated The screenshots make this game look retro in a cool way, in reality it just feels kinda old. Maybe it's better on phones, but on my tablet everything just looks sort of off. Mechanically the game's alright, nothing really to talk about one way or another. I played it for a bit but I didn't find it all that fun. I'd recommend Sky Force as a better arcade fighter plane game of the type.
I really enjoy this game. Nice arcade shooter in the second world war. Easy to pick up, can play a round while on the man throne and let it go when done. No pressuring to keep playing or stupid waiting times. The art style also reminds me of good old arcade games like Metal Slug. Nicely done HandyGames. More of that please. I think I am gonna pick up the Steam version too.
Great game but annoying screen rotation DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE DAMN AUTO ROTATION OF THE SCREEN! IT'S PISSING ME OFF FOR CRYIN' OUT LOUD!! An otherwise really great game. Tough to beat them faakers from stage 3 onwards though.
Grrrrrrr... If the ads didn't obscure the gameplay, I would rate this a little higher. I'm using a Moga Pro Hero, with the holder, which puts it in landscape view. But, since the top quarter of the screen is obstructed with ads, you can't see the enemies coming from that direction, or your plane if you need to go that way to dodge enemies or projectiles. Stupid design decision. I am not going to pay for the ability to see the screen. This is one of the worst forms of IAP out there.
