I've played this some before. If you like 3d dogfighting games this is worth checking out.

Happy to help. I got it several months back for free. It's kind of a little Galaxy on Fire but with more of a traditional Wing Commander dogfighting gameplay.

It's a freemium game they bumped a price on for a couple of days so the could hit the free charts?

They've done it to a couple of their freemiums.

Exactly. Don't fall for it, guys. This doesn't even deserve a topic.

I know it has IAP, but like a ton of runners that get posted here I was able to have fun playing the game (and I don't purchase IAP). I'll give it some more time today, but to my knowledge it hasn't been free since around June. But that may be incomplete info in Appsfire? Can anyone post when it was free last?

Yeah, looks like I was fooled about the pricing. But the info in iTunes and AppShopper is also wrong on the release date as I got it back in June or earlier and they say it came out in September. Appsfire says it came out in May which sounds about right.

Still, it's a pretty fun game. Graphics.. controls.. everything is nice. I know some folks were talking about Galaxy on Fire 2 (which I love that series) and wanting something a little more X-Wing/Wingcommander dog fight style and this sprang to mind... then I saw it go free again so figured it was worth recommending. I searched the forum for a thread but nothing.

Sorry if this caused anyone grief. I'm just a serious iOS gamer trying to help other gamers find cool games. I have no ties to the industry.

Well..this does look rather pretty freemium or not! Does it have a campaign/story mode?

Yeah. It has a campaign .. plus online multiplayer. I'm going to dig deeper into the campaign today but the missions seem to be based mostly around defending an area against T.O.O.L. (the enemy in the game).

Control options are tilt or touch... and there's a sensitivity slider on the touch controls for the stick.
