Sopwith Barons

By John Sheaffer

Take to the skies with this spiritual revival of the 1984 classic, Sopwith. Can you destroy all of the targets while avoiding (or destroying!) the aces out to stop you?

The battle scenario is easy to win, yet difficult to master. Reaching the highest ranks requires planning, a lot of skill, and a dash of luck.

Game Center is included with both Leader boards and Achievements (24 in total)

No ads, No in-app purchases, No up-selling, only fun!

Plays best on iPhone 4+ / iPad 2+

What's New in Version 1.1.0

Two new airplanes to bring to the battle - the Triplane, and a fancy experimental machine known as the Monoplane! (Will one-winged aircraft ever fly??)

New planes are unlockable by navigating the new pilot training program. Practice your skills before taking on the real battle.

Briefings now precede the standard battle mission. training modes, and challenge modes. This is a precursor to a future campaign mode now in design.

Expert pilots can take advantage of critical-hits to bring enemies down faster.

Enhanced graphics for both shooting and bombing.

Older devices will enjoy enhanced frame rates...but the oldest generations are no longer supported. Sorry!

Bug fixes include redeveloped screen controls to avoid non-response and improper response. (Thanks subsonic837). Also, Reduced some of the start-up choppiness some users experience.

Customer Reviews

Excellent remake of a classic but...

This is one of my favorites games since the PC version of 1980s. This has improved graphics and the gameplay is the same but I wish they had an option to get the old look an feel. Also some of the missions are quite hard and can be frustrating at times. Money well spent

Very difficult

Game is fun for a bit but it's nearly impossible to win. Much more difficult than the original and the controls Are not positioned ideal. The pause takes up most of the screen so you hit it by mistake during game play. To unlock the other battle modes you need 3 stars in all the trainings. I don't see how that is possible

Good old days

I spent days playing the original. So great to see this game get a new life. Author says there is a way to unlock Retro Mode, but I can't find that anywhere - very frustrating...
