Good price. Its the best combat sim on app store.

Question to the developer: is it possible to add 3rd person view?

I sat down and played this for a while and while it has good points, it's... boring tbh.

The game runs smooth and fluid on my 2g touch but while I dog fight against 1 plane for a few waves I just get bored, is there more which attack in later waves or is it always 1v1? Also I find it annoying that I had one boost and when this ran out me and the opponent were just running circles around each other until I found another missile, was unable to hit much with the machine gun but that will come with practice.

So yeah, it feels very empty right now.

After wave 5 you have 2 planes, afte wave 10 you get 3 enemy planes. Sounds like you didn't play it long enough to get a good feel for the game. Did you go for any pickups? Boost is one of them. Also, the throttle control on the HUD (new for 2.0) lets you move a LOT faster (or slower) depending on your needs.
