SciFly: Dogfight is an action packed 3D aerial combat game for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
Dominate the skies with missiles, machine guns, lasers, flak cannons and more. Explore lava oozing wastelands and Earth-like Utopias while flying a variety of specialized elite aircraft.
Engage with enemies fighters in both the Time Attack and Point Match battle modes. For every enemy you destroy, you will be rewarded with in-game credits. With these credits you can unlock new aircraft and upgrade their weapon and armor systems. If you do exceptionally well in a battle, you'll be rewarded with a large amount of bonus credits. There are 4 aircraft in all to unlock and upgrade.
If you collect enough credits, you can also unlock new planets to battle on While you first begin battling over the Utopia planet, you will later unlock the lava wasteland as well as an icy snow planet.
Each of the 4 aircraft are highly specialized. Each weapon system behaves in a unique way, so you will develop your own techniques to master each one. With the missile wielding Avenger, for example, you will want to approach from a distance and lock onto your target. However, with the flak-cannon wielding Gladiator, you will want to go full speed to get up close. This will allow you to blast your target away with a single well-placed shot.
SciFly's settings may be configured in the Settings app on your home screen, not in the game.

Good game, two massive glitches
This is an awesome game, but I found two MASSIVE glitches in the update.
1. When you first download it, the accelerometer doesn't work until you adjust the sensitivity in the settings.
2. After playing a while with the update, I earned fifteen or so points in a match and it said that I had over two billion credits, I then checked the high scores and I was on top (with five others who have the exact same score) when I played another match and earned 7 credits, it didn't change, I have a feeling that the credits I have are the max amount.
The rest of this new update Is awesome though. Bring a fix and you get six stars. Totally get it if you like dogfight games but be wary of these glitches.
EDIT: with the release of 1.4, the sensitivity glitch was fixed, the score glitch was fixed by re-downloading the game. I give it 6 stars now.
Stop freaking out about the sensitivity
After 1.3. If you have trouble with flying and you can't use the accelerometer, (if you had read the page in the app store before giving it 1 star you would know this) then go to the home menu, settings,scifly, and then adjust the bar at the bottom which is the sensitivity. Just move it a little. Then go back to scifly and play again.
This game is great and could become unbelievably good with a few updates.
1) customize a ship
2) a few more ship choices
3) some more planets and landscapes
4) a career mode with 3 difficulties that allows you to unlock new things
It is kind of hard to steer though, I can't stay locked on to a target
If you could make an option to lock on and then u can't spin around in circles...
Great game so far
This is a good game but within an hour or so I gathered the points to unlock the 3 battle themes and get all available ship powerups.
So now I just
Play and collect points, but there's nothing to expand and use the points for upgrade.
There needs to be some more goals, otherwise the game is really just flat after a while.
There are only 2 powerups per ship, and the extra 2 worlds are just color and style variations of each other.
Also a HUGE problem is the
Time limit. We should be able
To just keep playing rather than each game ending after 3 minutes.
It really is an excellent start. I just wish there were more to it.
