Had a quick go, very impressive. Love the graphics, filesize is very good, so you can only fire a missile when you're locked on ? Was hoping there would be a 'gun' type button but perhaps thats something later.

Seems to be a wide range of upgrades and missions, looking forward to trying this out more later.

LOVE Afterburner in the arcade and this seems a nice nod to that type of game

Just grabbed this. Thanks to the dev for a great free game and were glad to have you here!

Thanks for the support guys.. wow we already have a gameplay video.. awesome d(^o^)

@psj3809: being a "fire and forget" missiles-only game is the one thing that we didn't improve over the previous title.
It would be nice to finally add some alternative weapons, but that hasn't been planned yet.. it would definitely be an interesting addition (and pretty much an expected feature for flight combat games )

Yeah, After Burner was definitely a major source of inspiration

We're already working on additional content for the 1.1 ..new worlds, and stronger player ships.

Updates 'R' Us ! (well ok, at least a couple, I guess )

Sorry... I think that might be the case, looking at the leaderboards, there's not many people... And I'm still the only person on the Sadland world board. =oP

So yeah, I'm thinking that might be the case. I loved, and still love the original FC. Last time I played it was last week. =oP

Anywho... LOVING the new tweaks and everything. Especially the upgrade system!

And don't feel rushed by the few like me (obsessed with FC) - because you know we're gonna play through and then go back and battle it out for scores. Even if no more levels are added, this is Fractal Combat... And FREE! This weekend I should be getting another GiftCard, gonna go ahead and purchase some currency (to anyone wondering, it's not because you'll need it, but because I absolutely ADORE this game).

The enemies at the end of world two are crazy... There's loads of em, and some pretty strong ones... You might wanna upgrade your electronics (the amount of enemies you can target and your jamming) and your missile strength... Unless you're gettin beat up a bit, then you might wanna focus on armor. But the electronics upgraded all the way make it a blast takin out all those little guys and big groups of main targets all at once. =oD

I would love to see some machine gun upgrade action here. Possible?

So is there IAP? And if so, how much do you need it? Looks good, liked the first one. Might get this if I get the right answer here.
