Lightning Assault - Unique 360 Arcade JUST Released!

Hello everyone!

We would like to give you the opportunity to download Lightning Assault, our unique air combat game for iOS. We finally realized our dream of creating a 360 degree free-roaming 2D arcade-style air combat game. Throughout development, our aim was to create a game that, while retaining familiar 2D concepts, would distinguish itself from the host of other side and top-down scrolling games by adding the dynamics of 360 degree dog fights, in which everything revolves relative to the player. With a constantly increasing level of difficulty, we created eleven unique weapons that are used in distinctly different ways to create a thrilling dogfighting experience that cannot be found in other games in this genre. Gamers are able to enjoy the complete game for free, with premium content available. Download it here! https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/lightning-assault/id561474052?mt=8



See the trailer here!

Looks good! I think it would help you get more downloads if you put a link to the game in your first post.

It works well on the iPad, and with the 2x zoom feature, it looks great and handles well, but we don't have a dedicated iPad version. I've played to level 70 on the iPad without any issues!

Gave this one a go this morning. It's pretty cool. I love the top down 360 degree dogfights. I had to get used to the controls a little. I kept barrel rolling all over the place. I haven't gotten too far yet, so I haven't been able to purchase any upgrades, but yea, from what I've played, I'm digging it.

Really happy to hear that! Thanks for the feedback, and hopefully you can also post a review on the app store

The next update will have a barrel-roll sensitivity adjustment option. We should be releasing an update before the end of this month with some fixes and adjustments to any suggestions we receive. All feedback is much appreciated!
