Above & Beyond Air Combat - SUBMITTED! (w/ gameplay vid)

Finally! After 10 months, I am extremely excited to announce Above & Beyond has been submitted to the App Store and is awaiting approval. Here's hoping for a smooth process.

App Store price will be $2.99

In celebration of the submission, I'm releasing a new gameplay trailer!

Machine guns, lasers, missiles, n' 'splosions yay!

Original Trailer

Engage in action packed air-to-air and air-to-ground combat with enemy aircraft, battleships, and turrets as you battle for control of island strongholds.

With an armada of customizable combat aircraft at your disposal, you are challenged to explore and conquer the fully 3D, open-world environments of Above & Beyond Air Combat.

::: Features Summary :::

- Explore and conquer over 60 islands in a fully 3D, open-world environment.
- Customize 12 advanced combat aircraft
- Upgrade your aircraft with over 15 different weapons and numerous thrusters, shields, and other enhancements.
- Engage in 3 unique battle modes: Gauntlet, Survival, and Conquest.
- Share Highscores and Achievements via the fully integrated OpenFeint 2.1 service.
- Enjoy *your* music with in-game music library integration.
- Several options to calibrate and tune controls to your personal preference
- Initial loading times are very quick, and there are rarely any loading times during gameplay

Insta-buy. It looks great, has lots of features, and seems to be severely under priced. I hope you have good luck with your game.

Trust me, this game is a must buy. The game is extremely responsive and there's plenty of replay value. Beta testing this game was definitely a fun experience, I can tell you that much.

Thanks guys! I've been awake for some 30 hours now, so I'm going to sign off. I'm thinking I might create another mini trailer tomorrow to show off some of the features I didn't get into in the last one.

That'll help pass the time, at least :-)

This game looks friggin' awesome, and although I enjoyed SciFly, this is head and shoulders above it in every way. Insta-buy for me

+1 to hoping the approval process is quick and painless

Two guys walked into a bar. You think they would've seen it or something.
