The Story So Far:
Your engine's turbines roar as you scream out of the sky. Startled troops look up just in time to see your wing cannons blaze. You feel the plane buck slightly as your missiles streak toward their targets. A flash in the distance tells you that they have done their job and so have you. The Mega-Corps pay well, for those good enough to survive. They call you into the shadows with dreams of wealth, and you answer, the only way you know how.
Welcome to the world of Raptor. You and your plane are the best there is, and you're ready to face your ultimate challenge. Earn cash from each successful mission to buy upgrades for your plane and outfit it with the best that money can buy. Keep those shields charged with Energy Modules and stock-up on high tech gadgets, because you are going to need it!

I was so excited to see this game on the Apple Store because it was one of my favorite games as a kid. Unfortunately, it is not very responsive — the aircraft lags behind the position and movement of your finger. The aircraft moves slowly, not like the original game on PC where it was nimble and could easily dodge incoming attackers. Also it can only be played in horizontal mode on your iPhone. This app could easily be amazing, if they just made it faster and more responsive.
Thank you so much for bringing this game to iOS! This was one of the first video games I've played.. So much memories 😄
