The epitome of bad microtransaction games
If you have a bottomless checking account, this is the game for you
It started out all too well; a promising turn based game with WWI aircraft. Select your pilots, upgrade them with bonuses and new aircraft. The first few levels were fun, so I decided to continue and finish the current campaign, thinking $4.98 for the nation packs would be value for the content received. How wrong I was.
As others have said, the difficulty level spikes almost immediately after the unlock point. The game becomes frustrating and no matter what difficulty level you play on, you will lose pilots and lose them frequently, it's unavoidable. If there was a way to recruit new pilots to replace injured ones, this would be less of an issue, however the only way to heal your pilots is through a $0.99 cent in-app purchase. In other words, users have to pay in order to continue the game that they rightfully purchased.
This kind of behavior sickens me; insidious microtransactions and in-app purchases are forced on a user to continue to play the game in order to make money for the developer. It is equivalent to highway robbery; and I urge all users to stay away from this game at all costs.
Great, but not perfect, game.
This is a turn based game that plays like a real-time simulation. Excellent game concept. To really experience the full game you need to buy all of the campaigns (Pilots from different countries). There are significant differences in aircraft and the corresponding tactics. Even with this, the game is worth buying. I would have preferred to buy everything up front, but this approach allows you to see if you like the game before spending more.
I detest the IAP healing option for one dollar. Not needed and pure greed. The other IAP all expand the game; the total is a reasonable price for the game you get. Also, I hate the advertisements, even if they are infrequent. One star off for that crass commercialism.
The game has a few bugs that cause some mission crashes but they aren't too frequent.
Exactly as I remember playing Ace of Aces
Ace Patrol appears to be a wonderful updated interpretation of Alfred Leonardi's 1980's two-player picture book air combat game series Ace of Aces. The book series was appropriately inducted into the Adventure Gaming Hall of Fame in 1994. My friends and I spent many an evening playing advanced versions of the book game and I often wished for a modern version to be available. Sid Meier's Ace Patrol has granted my wish. Great gameplay for those of us who are quick reflex challenged. Easy to learn the basics and lots of advanced options to continue to provide challenging gameplay as your skills increase. My only wish is that it played on my iPad version 1 or my Mac.
