Default Aera - Upcoming iPhone game



• Different mission types (Aerobatic, Dog-fight, Race) plus bonus - Free Flight
• MultiPlayer Game (Duel and Capture the Flag)
• Advanced and carefully tuned physics simulation
• Different Locations and Planes to fly
• All the environments are carefully modeled in 3D
The gameplay mechanics are a mix of side-scroller and flight simulator. You play in a real 3D environment and control the throttle and pitch of your plane, plus a couple more "Special" moves. It might sound too simple, but it's not - advanced physics simulation allow you to perform very complex tricks and movements. With practice you will be able to master more and more fun maneuvers. This will allow you to use different tactics to complete each game mission. Also, with advancing through the game you will get faster and more powerful airplanes, better weapons, and you will face more challenging AI opponents.
Essentially, the game can be defined as casual 2.5D flight simulator. Since the physics model is "real" but simplified, it allows you to start off easily, but as you advance and master the controls, you'll discover more possibilities and ways of flying. Eventually, you might find it fun and enjoyable just to fly the planes around the scenery, hence the Free Flight Mode.

Whoa!

Video looks awesome. How soon before this comes out? Looks like a game I would defintely be interested in. Are you going to have several plane models that can be piloted? It looks like it from the video, but I 'm not sure.

Lots of modes, and who doesn't like surviving a direct hit to "do over" again?

Can't wait..

This looks great! However, I'm stumped by how the controls work. Is it on rails where tilting the iDevice maneuvers the plane while its on its rails?

Very eye catching, though is this going to be multiplayer bluetooth, wifi, or online? Seems very nice

I hope there's multiplayer, this might satisfy my appetite for Prop plane combat sims.

Don't only Listen to those multiplayer guys.

There are plenty of guys like me that enjoy single player, and never engage in multiplayer, or online.

Not meant as a flame, just making sure dev hears both sides...

Happy 4th..
