App description: Amazon Game Studios presents: Air Patriots!
Air Patriots redefines defense games with unique drawing controls, and "towers" that take flight!

In Air Patriots, you control a squadron of airplanes by drawing the paths they will follow to engage the enemy! Unlike normal defense games, in Air Patriots your weaponry is all mobile, allowing you to change up tactics on the fly and move your "towers" to where they're needed the most!

Prepare your defenses for when the combat gets fierce by leveling-up airplanes and collecting gears that will both unlock new battlefields and add new unique aircraft for your armada. Score high enough to receive a medal of honor on the Rookie, Pro, and Veteran levels of each map and youll unlock one of the 100 wave survival levels that will challenge your strategies to the fullest.

Air Patriots features beautiful rich visuals, over 50 achievements, an awesome music score, and nearly endless hours of fun!

*****GAMEPLAY*****
Air Patriots is an action strategy game with simple controls. By drawing lines with your fingers you will precisely determine the path each airplane in your fleet will follow as they move to engage the enemy. Air Patriots challenges players to balance a full squadron of aircraft using quick, but well thought-out strategies to eliminate the on-coming waves of enemy tanks.

*****FEATURES*****

- Score high to receive the best medal possible on each of the levels

- Play for hour after hour to achieve high scores and unlock all achievements
- Level-Up your airplanes to make them even more destructive

*****ADVANCED GAMEPLAY*****
- PATROL PATHS - Drawing paths is just the beginning; you can create a patrol path by drawing a circle. Once an airplane is in a patrol path it will follow the same path indefinitely, so strategize well!
- MAP STRATEGY - Find your own favorite spots for patrol paths on each of the 7 unique maps to personalize your strategy and maximize your score!
- SQUADRON SELECTION Missile can be fired from a distance, bombs may do additional fire or radiation damage. In all there are 13 plane types, but you can only start a level with 5. Pick your winning combination!

Seems like this is full of IAP but since it's free there's no reason not to give it a try.

Glad that you've been enjoying it! My favorite part of making games is seeing people have fun with them (my least favorite part is seeing people not have fun with them!).

We've got another Map in our current update that we're aiming to submit to Apple in a couple of weeks. It's called Skyland and is built around floating islands in the sky.

Needs an wiki or guide

I find it hard to enjoy not knowing what the capability of the planes are. Am I missing something?

Unfortunately, you have to go to the store to check.

We've wanted to add a way to more clearly show what each plane does, it's pluses and minuses since before release, but we haven't been able to squeeze it in just yet (we'll see what future updates hold ).

There is an update that is nearly done, we hope to submit it in the next few days, which will add in a new map and persistent leveling so that you can start the planes at a higher level if you want (all levels continue to be made so that you can get Superior w/o having to buy and planes or start any planes with leveled up, but for those who want it a little easier, this may help to do so).

Leveling is done with gears.

The new update will also include a new plane called Silverfinger, which turns tanks to silver .

Maps and Persistent leveling are both w/gears, so IAP isn't needed, certainly though, as game makers, it's hard to keep content coming in unless the new content pays for itself. It's a tough balance for sure .

What are the requirements for getting a superior medal? I can't seem to find any description of what the requirements are for the different medals.

Superior Scores in Air Patriots

Apologies in advance for the LONG post!

The requirements for superior are two fold: getting a high score AND not losing any hearts.

How do you get a higher score? Play at a faster pace! The more you use the FF button the higher your score will be! (Alternatively - Advancing the tanks will have the same effect on score)
They key to a high score is to destroy everything, and to do it quickly!
Also, you should avoid using bombs as each use will decrease your score!

How medals are awarded:
Superior - Lose no Hearts + Reach Superior score (listed below!)
Gold - Lose 2 or less Hearts
Silver - Lose 3-8 Hearts
Bronze - Lose 9-19 Hearts

Thank you for that information! I think it might be helpful and appreciated if this information could be put in the game, since most people who play the game probably don't check these forums.
