Yup, the screenshots look cool, but there's nothing on YouTube or App Store? Hoping this is as good as it looks, because it's as close as I'll get to playing SGN's fabulous Skies of Glory on my iPad!!

...but where is it? Marco.......Polo...

Just dug a bit deeper. This is available only in Canada right now -- my guess is that Namco is testing the online component in a smaller market (just like Ngmoco has done in the past). Guess we'll have to wait till they expand the release.

Revo got some of us players from SoG and FAST involved in ideas and suggestions for this game. We have been working with them for months now and this game is going to have some features that blow the previous games away. For example, a customizable word wheel, three different types on control interfaces, the ability to repair your plane when you land... all kinds of fun stuff in store for RoG! Take it from me, this game is absolutely incredible!

I'm a happy beta feedback person for this, and I can absolutely say that it IS as good as it looks. And it is in Apple's hands for approval.

Also, it's made by the same guys who brought us Skies of Glory, Revo Solutions Games, and comes with improvements, many, many improvements. (But you're right that SGN is now holding the reins of Skies of Glory).

I highly recommend this game! Keep your eyes peeled for its availability in the App Store.

It's actually out in Canada, so it must already be approved. Any word on when it will be available in the US?
