What's New in Version 1.5.1
- Improved graphics using the "Metal" API
- Reduced memory usage
- Removed Everyplay recording
- Bug fixes
Like my fellow Storm Raiders have mentioned, this is definitely the best and most successful installation of the SkyGamblers franchise (trumping even its' successor: SkyGamblers Cold War).
Combining incredible graphics (by iOS standards), engaging gameplay (with a story campaign, single player missions, multiplayer matches, and freeflight), a large selection of WWII warplane stalwarts (including the Supermarine Spitfire, P51 Mustang, Messerschmitt 109, Mitsubishi Navy Type 0, and many others), the ability to customize your warbirds (change the color of their paint, insert a pic from your camera roll to your planes' cockpit dashboard, and configure your weapons of choice), a full 3D cockpit view (where you can look around freely by holding your finger down on your devices' screen, and then dragging), large 3D worlds to fly around in (where in freeflight mode, there are no invisible boundaries at the edges of the map, allowing you to fly with absolute freedom to wherever you want to go!), and many other great features you should check out!
Sure you have to buy some of the cooler planes via in-apps (I bought all of them btw, it was well worth it!), but some of the others can still pack a punch, can may be unlocked by playing missions and gaining XP.
If you haven't already picked up this awesome game, I highly recommend you do so ASAP!... er... as soon as possible! You'll most likely not be disappointed!
The problem with this game isn't the game itself. The graphics are great, the flying is loads of fun and the air battles are fantastic. The problem is with the players who can't win without dumping their entire load of missiles at you during a dogfight. It would be great if their were more realistic enthusiasts who are able to fly and fight with guns only, as most of these planes actually had. Don't ever recall missiles used in aerial combat against anything other than ground targets in WWII, and in certain theaters of operation they weren't used at all. Same goes for jet aircraft. There is the ability to create your own game with certain parameters such as "Cannons Only" but most don't seem to understand what that means or simply ignore it in order to frag as many opponents as possible. These pinheads can't fly or shoot their way out of a paper bag so they have to rely on a spread of rockets hoping something hits
Pay to win, bugs, and anoyances
Pay to win, pay to play. A one star for that. Fix the game it has bugs. At 20% and 10% battery indication all sound ingame goes out and you have to restart the app to get it back. App burns battery life much quicker than GTA San Andreas so fix it I know it's possible. Many complaints on stats of planes. All cockpits are that of bf109 Very unrealistic combat. Horrible physics. A plane can propellor hang while increasing speed. Maximum speed in a dive is that of plane level flight. Flaps act as speed break. No use for any combat maneuvers as they don't work. Speed is your enemy in game. This is opposite to that of ww2. The best planes are pay to use. Ideas- Developers can make acceleration slower and increase how quickly speed drops when climbing vertically. Maybe change the aiming radical to increase survivability of evading a firing solution without a panic turn. Maybe increase speed on dive. Decrease speed drop when flaps are extended to allow room for overshoot maneuvers like barrel rolls, and flat or rolling scissors. All these are well in the scope of the game engine. I would like to see them done.
