Why 5 Stars?


This game is inspired by another game called Luftrausers. If you love that game you will absolutely love this one. If you haven't heard of Luftrausers get on Steam and buy it, it's amazing. Anyways everything in THIS game screams premium and quality. The art style is beautiful. There are lots of backgrounds and different enemy planes and terrains you fight around. There's a great selection of fighters for you to obtain and upgrade. There is 3 game modes including a daily challenge which you can choose to be notified when a new challenge is ready. The monetization is very fair. Each plane can be unlocked with coins you obtain by playing or paying $.99 cents. There are opt in ads for coins if you wish to earn more coins on top of playing. The campaign missions are tough as nails but very fun and when you beat them you really get a nice sense of accomplishment. There is Everyplay integration to upload your videos. The game is well made. I've not had one single lag spike or crash. The controls are actually PERFECT for this game. You couldn't possibly make them any better. Try the game and you'll see for yourself. Thank you devs for an amazing game and experience. This game deserves 5 stars.

AD tsunami


Started playing this game, failed first mission and there was an ad. Played a few more an after almost every mission there was an ad. I liked the fact that the game is challenging so I figured if I made an in app purchase of a plane they ads would stop like most other freemium games.... NOPE. Spending almost 50% of the time in the app watching ads is not my idea of entertainment.



Great game, great graphics. Overall fun 10/10. Everyone is complaining about ads but I only get like 1 per 3 or 4 levels. So I don't see what the big deal is.
