Air cadets: Price drop [Now FREE!!!]

Anyone tried air cadets yet? Icon doesn't look great (anime faces icon normally have rubbish games and they aren't very informative) but I'm stumbled on it and the graphics look great!

Would love to see a review!

I agree. Just stumbled across it then, looks cool. Tho I agree that the icon is a strange choice..

Anyone? Seems like a decent 3D arcade flight game, seems to have smoother graphics than Armageddon Squadron and Bii Plane. I guess everyone is interested in Hero of Sparta at the moment!

Awaiting the review

*Bump*

Has anyone gotten this yet? It looks pretty decent? I think it may have gotten drowned by all the big releases in the last few days...

*Bump* Again...

Sorry to bump this again, but I am really pondering this one. I just wanted to know if anyone has tried this yet...
Looks kinda like pilot wings...

I emailed the developer asking him to post some sort of gameplay video, no reply yet. Nice site though.

The controls feel very awkward in this game. There is no "flowing" feeling -- it's kind of an up/down OR left/right, never something that feels like flying, so to speak. Feels very "digital" vs. "analog," if that makes sense.

We may post a look at this. The controls are my big gripe, though.

my thoughts exactly. grabbed this one last night on an impulse and it really needs some work in the control department.

Thanks for the review, Based on what your telling me, I think I'll hold off on this one. Just for curiosity sakes, how are the graphics?
