I can't remember, is 1942 a top-down view? or side-view?

Look @ AeroWings, it is a pretty well polished app with some nice features. Though, it is fairly sluggish.

Might wanna check out SkySmash 1918, I really like it and it's only a buck. Don't know how it compares to others in the app store as I'm not a big fan of the genre.
