Customer Reviews

bugs, no depth

A little like "skies of glory" (that one is great but isn't ipad optimized) but this game misses the mark. Visuals are ok. But, there are many bugs. Buttons (for music and ratings for example) sometimes work sometimes don't. Many controls are like that. Push a button, nothing happens. Also and importantly the throttle sound doesn't change as you move it up or down (big flaw!). Frankly it's hard to tell if your speed changes, can't hear it or feel it.

Only the plane you target (even if surrounded by many others) is hit. It doesn't appear that the planes next to it get hit. Often they clearly are the ones your gun is pointed at (or in front of). All the missions about the same despite the different script and historical text. That makes this game boring fast, it's really just point and shoot, no ground or water targets. Only 2 planes. The whole description is really misleading! Gameplay gets to be numb and repetitive. Disappointing!

I could go on. I like ww2fight sims and there aren't enough of them. This has promise, but it needs so much work and depth. I wouldn't buy it had I known.

Battle of Britain

I enjoy this game on the iPad because of the scenery and history and aircraft types and details. I also like the fact that the targets fire back with effect. The scripted missions are fine as intros but the actual engagements vary, which is fine. No way to copy exactly what a WWII pilot did on that mission. The use of red diamonds and arrows are helpful but yellow is easier to see. So, overall the game is educational, challenging and fun.

However...I have some suggestions:

1. Allow selection of targets. After attacking a bomber formation, for example, the game won't allow engaging other bombers in that formation which is not logical. During the BOB, the objective was to shoot down as many bombers as possible. Allowing the pilot to easily switch to the nearest bomber target would help. Otherwise it is necessary to keep pushing the target button until another bomber shows up.

2. Limit ammo. Unlimited ammo is not realistic but should be kept as an option. Maybe offer a third mode: "COMBAT" in which ammo is limited.

3. The gunsight is too large. Perhaps it can be reduced in size or narrowed down to a smaller reticle for realism in the REALISTIC and COMBAT modes.

4. Use yellow arrows and diamonds for target cues for better visibility.

I believe the above suggestions would improve the game.

Battle of Britain

Like this game very much even though I find the control a bit sensitive. The only gripe I have is the gun bottom keep firing even when I don't have my finger on it. Please fix this bug. Just finessed the game. What do you have on forva continuance. Except for the bugs above I loved it.
