Ratings and Reviews
Awesome job. Would love to see full DPRK campaign or other locals. Just as easy to use as the PC version. The double tap-tap took some getting used to but once you learn to set multiple turn points things get easier. Keep up the good work. Hope to see future releases!
I want to like this game but it has a really distracting bug in which the map is displayed at a much lower resolution than either the iOS display or the menu. Looks really bad and not clear if developer is still actively supporting it.
Tactical air combat at its finest
This excellent wargame simulates modern and near-future air combat at the tactical level, and should be considered a must-play for anyone seeking a departure from the more casual iOS fare. Fans of the Harpoon series, Jane's Fleet Command or Command: Modern Air / Naval Operations (all on PC) should stop reading this review immediately and download the game: you'll be right at home.
For others, this game may appear rather unapproachable, with an admittedly clunky interface and detailed modeling of aircraft and land-based radar and emissions. Those who put in the time to read the extensive documentation and learn the underlying systems, a game of incredible depth and realism awaits.
My only complaint is lack of a unified campaign and the overall impression that this app was designed to be a tutorial for greater things to come. Of course, it's free, so there's nothing wrong with that.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
