Arcade Perfect

Great game that reminds me of Top Gun, but 10 times better, with a hint of Metal Slug to it. Controls are very easy to pick up and use, achievement system is nice with adding some fun cheats along the way, and I really dig the plane styles you can choose from. Plus, the in game music and ability to choose paths is a great win. I have not had any game issues as far as operation goes. For those having problems, they are most likely on older phones or don’t have OS up to date. All around a great experience with tons of re-playability.

Doesn’t work offline?

The game won’t even load in airplane mode. (There’s a joke there somewhere...). Wanted to spend time playing during a trip and on a flight, during both I had no connection to a network available to me... the game wouldn’t load at all, just kept giving me a message saying ‘you must connect to the internet’. Why? This isn’t mentioned in the description as a requirement at all... First game I’ve ever downloaded that did this. (My phone is offline for several hours of almost every day, so I notice apps that don’t work offline more than most probably.)
