Sky Knight Ex - WWII SHMUP - Free right now

The app description says it's free 7/22 - 7/24, so hopefully it will be free for at least the rest of the day!




Nice little WWII shmup, the menu is in Chinese, and I have no idea why they would have a F-22 Raptor on the icon for a WWII game?

It's an F-15, but yeah...curious.

Downloading because I'm a whore for shmups.

Thanks for the info, wasn't exactly sure about what kind of the jet it was, took a gamble and lost!

Yeah, the menus are in Chinese, but it seems to be your standard menu choices, I was able to play right off the bat, not sure about updating you ship or weapons yet, but with a some trial and error, you might be able to figure something out!

Lots of potential here in terms of engine and dynamic environments, but it's pretty tough to figure out what's going on, and I think it's nearly impossible to die.
