Ratings and Reviews
Stunning. The very best of the best.
I am a former game developer at Acclaim Entertainment, and so I can be extremely critical of games. Air Attack and Air Attack 2 are games that are in a class of their own. The level of detail, imagination, and gameplay dynamics is unprecedented. This represents an extremely rare case of getting everything right. Not only right, but stunningly perfect. The gameplay offers many different strategies and missions, and there are NO microtransactions. This is a developer that I will always support.
The music, graphics, gameplay, and progression system is so good that I feel this game is not only the best game of this type on mobile, but the very best game on any platform. It is that good. It has tremendous replay value, not only for the incredibly depth of gameplay, but how the entire game is presented. Buy it and support this developer.
My only wish is that they make an Air Attack 3. I would also like Air Attack 1 to become compatible with iOS 12. I sure hope they do it, because that is also an incredible game.
Quite good, with a few exceptions
Great game, so well designed. Smooth and seamless graphics. Fast action and yet it doesn’t overwhelm processing on most decent smart phones and pads that I know of.
I wish there were more levels, or an air attack 3 at the very least. I’d pay $5+ in a heartbeat for more. Maybe make this game a bit harder perhaps? Add some differing music for different missions maybe?
I also would love to experience more sequences where the screenplay rotates occasionally either in fighting ‘bosses’, or in transitioning from different areas. Visually I get tired of the same forward scrolling. The developer is capable of this as the rotation happens in a few missions and then also at the end of every successful mission just about. The graphics are awesome, and it pronounces the 3D effect in those rotations.
Practically Perfect in Every Way
This game is, there’s no other way to say it, exceptional. The graphics, while a bit blocky, are exceptional for iOS. The gameplay is fun, some might say repetitive, but I never get tired of flying around in the P-38 and shooting up the Nazis.
The amount of detail and effort in every level is exceptional, each level is unique in nearly all regards. And the bosses are great.
My only qualm: I wish we had more, more of the one-off special sequences like the chase sequence. More levels, bosses. One thing I would suggest is bringing back the winter and desert areas from the first (also exceptional) game, and more naval levels.
This is just personal opinion but my favorite part was always watching enemy ships sink after killing them , so I would recommend more of that instead of having the ships fall apart. And stuff like the aircraft carrier from the volcano, more levels against the Japanese (especially the harbor ones) would make this game perfect.
So, sorry to only give four stars, this game truly is incredibly good, but it could be even better.
P.S. please add compatibility for the first game I played it for years and I’m really sad that I can’t go back and relive old times on it.
