iFlyer Sopwith Camel Out Today!

PrefabGirl is proud to announce the launch of its highly anticipated debut title:

iFlyer Sopwith Camel

Fly your trusty Camel biplane through three gorgeous painterly environments and defend your stronghold against marauding enemies. Fly low to destroy the Sturmpanzer tanks on the ground or soar high to shoot down the bomber balloons in the clouds. Use all your skill to blast the infamous Fokker Dr I DreiDeckers out of the skies.

Please grab your copy today and if you like the game, write us a good review.







Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions. Thank you for your support and enjoy!

Interesting graphics. Terribly horrid name (that doesn't roll of the tongue very well) which is sure to detract potential customers who don't know what a Sopwith plane is.

Indeed, I just looked it up, it's a plane apparently. To me, it's just an ugly, awkwardly pronounced word.

This just reminded me of the old, old game called Sopwith for DOS and clicked on the thread hoping it was a remake

Looks Like a fun Game !

I didn't see any screen shots with the tanks? Any video of the game action?

Thanks,

Also the plane that Snoopy flies in his dreams of dogfighting vs the red baron

The camel is as famous in WW1 as the P51D was in WW2.

I happen to hate the iFlyer part, they could just drop that part of the name or call it "Sopwith Camel Flyer" or something like that.

That was the first thing I thought of when I saw the name of this game.

I've been away for awhile, but I'm back.

Terrible name aside, the game does look interesting. Checked out the link to see if there was any video on the site. Found this instead.

LOL. I like the fact that the devs were honest enough not to add shill reviews.
