Beat your friends in AirFight!

"You engage in battle with a fighter in each of your iPhone or iPod touch devices via Wi-Fi. The player with the best tactical and flying skills has the best chance of emerging victorious. There is also a singleplayer mode for when you want to play on your own. The gaming experience is incredible. You pilot your plane with the help of the accelerometer and use Multi-Touch to fire your weaponry and regulate your speed. The 3-D graphics and sound effects create the atmosphere but it’s the sensation of flight that’s best about the game. A company that has developed flight simulators for the Swedish JAS Gripen fighter has helped in creating AirFight."

That is the wrong perspective...

We do not need more that are all the same. We do need more that in some measure are better than those which they follow...

See:

Air Cadets $4.99 Forum

Armageddon Squadron $1.99 Forum

Battle Sky $3.99 Forum

Flying Aces $7.99 Forum

SciFly $0.99 Forum

The planes look a bit crap. I mean they look like they are modeled well, but where are the textures? And one plane looks to have a horrible black outline. I wouldn't mind, but when you consider the cost, we deserve better than that.
Who wants to spend 6/$10 to see if it's better than the others? Anyone? Hello? ....

Btw- I agree with Salsamd too.

I think the game looks great but I'd appreciate it if they made the planes look more like the one in the icon. I think the icon looks fantastic but the planes in the game don't look quite as nice

The thing is, for this price, we really do deserve to have a proper flight combat sim, with not only dogfighting, but also proper mission structure, land targets, various landscapes, and landing at the end of a mission.
Once again, we have dogfighting game with nothing else to offer.

Ouch! Those textures are non-existant aren't they. Those Outlines are also rather off-putting. I really couldn't shell out $9.99 when you've got Rolando and SimCity for the same price.

Funny, all these new dogfighting games have fancy graphics and such but their gameplay sucks compared to SciFly, a game that was programmed by one teenager.

Some Advice...

1. Like everyone else has been saying the planes need to be improved
2nd. Having the people in the video, although a cool idea i think that most people would like gameplay rather then this.

From $10 to $8 to $3 in only a few days. I guess the developer got a clue.
