the best of Sonic Wings... if it only worked right At first glance, this app seems to be a direct port of an existing Sonic Wings game. However, it has substantial differences from both the original SW Special and the arcade game SW Limited. The app currently allows you to select from four classic SW characters: Blaster Keaton, Captain Silver, Hien, and Mao Mao. It features nine levels with familiar SW bosses and has a different ending for each character. The graphics and music translate well from the original games. While control of the plane by touch takes getting used to, it isn't a huge drawback. Unfortunately, this app has other problems: it lags after the first play-through and does not display correctly on either my Ally or Galaxy Tab. On the Ally, several images (including the help screen) do not load. On the Galaxy Tab, part of every screen is cut off, making gameplay nearly impossible. While Hamster intended to add additional characters to the app, no updates have been made as of yet. As a long time Sonic Wings fan, I'm excited to have any SW app at all, particularly based on Special. I can only hope that Hamster will update to make the game more stable and include more of our favorite Aero Fighters!
Update Needed I understand that the format is based on the legendary game but I hope graphics would be improved. There are games in Google Play Store with better graphics and are even for free.
Great game, but with bad controls The controls are unlike what I experienced with the Cave and DotEmu shmups. I have to flick to move the plane. This is an excellent game, but the below-average controls in this port might ruin it for some.
