Never before seen On-Rails Modern Aerial Combat arcade experience, with sights, sounds and non-stop action that will take your breath away!
Enjoy Simple and Intuitive Controls: tilt your iOS device left/right to steer your fighter jet around city obstacles while skillfully avoiding enemy missiles.
Alternatively, for a casual ON-RAILS experience: forgo tilting and simply tap your enemies to engage the "Autopilot" while controlling your Afterburner and Weapons with a smooth 2-button interface.
Face more than 30 different types of enemies, including: modern jets, attack helicopters and GIGANTIC money-packed transport aircraft!
20 action-oriented campaign missions (including 2 bonus Endless Gauntlet levels) offer hours of action-packed On-Rails arcade-style game play.

RPG Style Progression System allows you to FREELY acquire, pilot and level-up 3 unique jet-fighters while unlocking 18 different types of Afterburner and Weapon upgrades.
Optional In-App Purchases allow you to skip the RPG grind and instantly acquire any of the playable fighter jets. In addition, you can Restore your existing purchases to unlock content on multiple iOS devices.
Game Center support: with 8 Leaderboards and 18 elusive Achievements that demand an additional 10+ hours of game play.
Team up with friendly AI wingmen in the later stages of the game, and watch as your enemies fall before your elite squadron, known as the "Flying Benjamins".
Highly Stylized and Action-Oriented Storytelling is told through the radio of your fighter jet. Alternatively, all voice banter can be turned OFF in the "Options" menu of the game, creating an even faster arcade-style experience that is accessible to everyone with no language barrier.
Over 30 minutes of memorable original music will dynamically accompany your On-Rails cinematic experience.
Adaptive AI and Randomized Enemies with Dynamic Difficulty: provide for a near endless replay value, as your opponents constantly change and adapt to your style of game play each time you engage a new or existing mission.

>> Game Play Basics:

Steer your jet-fighter manually by tilting your device left and right, or tap your enemies to engage the ON-RAILS "Autopilot". NOTE that you must be facing your enemies directly before pressing the right "Weapons/Fire" button. Holding the left "Afterburner" button will allow you to avoid enemy missiles as well as steer around varoius city hazards. Remember that the game's Dynamic On-Screen Tutorial System will always guide you on the right course of action, while prolonged use of the Weapons/Afterburner will cause a temporary overload. Also, note that your jet fighter is equipped with automatic repair systems which will activate shortly after you stop taking damage.

Completing missions, earning XP and leveling-up your jet-fighter to Level 5 will unlock new playable aircraft for FREE. You may also skip the RPG grind and instantly level-up via the use of optional In-App Purchases. Each In-App Purchase can also be Restored, thus allowing you to instantly unlock playable fighter jets on multiple iOS devices.

It's from the same dev who gave us Quantum Legacy, and this one seems like a reskin of that.

For anyone who remembers, this guy pulls his apps and re releases them with different titles. At least this time he reskinned Quantum Legacy instead of pulling and re-titling like he did about 3 or 4 times on QL.

QL was actually a pretty good onrails shooter, but the stunts pulled off by the dev makes me hesitate into buying this one. I believe this is a reskin though, based on what i know with QL and this dev.

Thanks for the heads-up EP. I had this on my wish list. I think I'll hold for now.

Lol... This dev is doing it again. Pulling his apps, and re-releasing in different titles. One of the worst devs ever. Too bad he actually makes decent, but samey, game.
