I tried this last night, and while I really wanted to like it, I could not get past the first mission (and I'm no stranger to flight sims). First, the fisheye element to the camera is very disorienting for me - I crashed into the ground a few times because of it. Second, I dislike behind the plane view types of flight games, but that's just my personal opinion - I'd much rather have a cockpit view. Third, one or two times it seemed like I actually killed all the enemies (from what I could tell on the radar), but the level didn't end. Then once the time ran out, the mission failed. Finally, the radar sometimes has redraw problems - planes will jump around (and I'm not talking about when you have an enemy in front, fly a half-loop, and the enemy is now behind you).

I just tried a few more times, and I finally completed the first mission. I think the biggest issue is really that fisheye camera.

Loved the first one so this is a no brainer for me. Downloaded and anxious to give it a try!

Very fun game! Like the first fractal combat, and this is an improvement over that! Graphics unbelievable and controls are great. I'd like to make one request, please. Could you make it an option to turn off the auto leveling feature of the arcade controls? Many times it auto levels the plane and if you're close to the ground or mountains, I crash into them. The left/right leveling is ok for the arcade controls, but the up/down leveling is a bit of a hinderance for me. Thanks very much for a really fun game!

Played the original and must say that this one takes it to a whole new level. The first time I sat down and played I made it to the second mission of the second world. Was able to upgrade the plane almost all the way with only a few replays of some missions. Iap is not needed as of yet. May be needed for a new plane in higher levels. But you should pick this one up. Very fun and you can't beat the cost. The dev did a very nice job on this one.

Thanks !

By autoleveling you mean with the touch controls, when one gets the finger off the stick ?
