The Best Flight Game on the App Store Gets Even Better
Skygamblers: Storm Raiders has been my favorite entry in the series so far. It debuted after the massively successful Skygamblers: Air Supremacy. At the time, Storm Raiders was the best looking App Store title that was rivaled only by Infinity Blade 2. However, that was back in the era of the iPhone 5. Since the breakthrough of Metal, App Store titles such as Modern Combat 5 and Asphalt 8 have stepped up their game in graphical quality. Now I'm pleased to say that this Skygamblers entry has done the same. With improved textures, lighting, and effects, Skygamblers: Storm Raiders looks better than ever on the newest iOS devices. I hope the same coat of Metal paint is applied to the other three titles in the Skygamblers trilogy. (Everplay has been removed from this game which may disappoint some)
Most excellent props flight combat game
This is the WWII game in the Sky Gamblers series, and is excellent. This is NOT a flight simulator, not an arcade game, but right at the sweet spot in between. The single-players games are fun, but this game really hits its stride in multiplayer games. It's enough like Cold War, Air Supremacy and Rise of Glory (the other games in the Sky Gamblers series) that players of these games will find them intuitive. If you like air combat games, the Sky Gamblers are the best, and Storm Raiders is the best of the series IMO.
The latest update fixes issues this game had playing on lower-end devices running iOS8 - it now runs great again on my iPad 2. The graphics have changed as well - some new visual glitches, but at least on my machine they're improved overall for sure.
Liking this game
The game itself is quite good, with acceptable graphics for a mobile device game and a large selection of detailed aircraft, combined with a ton of game-modes to enjoy. A few complaints: although there are several control schemes available, they all seem to trade some good aspect in exchange for another; i.e. the ability to perform a canopy roll in exchange for more difficult aircraft control. Additionally, the game does crash frequently, often failing to save progress in missions when it does so. However, this IS one of the most detailed and content-packed airplane games out there, with almost all of the aircraft available for free, and no shortage of fun things to do. If you can handle the minor annoyances I mentioned, then you will definitely appreciate this game.
