The Art of Flying

First peak at "The Art of Flying", an over-the-shoulder 60fps flight simulator game, loosely based on Namco's Prop Cycle, with support for multiplayer coop.

seeking beta testers

Looking to line up beta testers - requires IOS8, with initial focus on the flight mechanic/physics/controls. Controls are currently similar to Glyder - tilt to steer left/right or ascend/descend. You tap the screen to flap wings and increas speed.
