Awesome! It's out! I'm gonna buy this right now. I'm not sure if I'm gonna get used to the tilt controls though.

Actually, I'm gonna wait for impressions.

To add to our confusions, the tittle really says 1951 and according to wiki, the air war in the WWI Western Front did not heat up till 1915...

BTW, anyone TOFTT?

The game is set in an alternate reality where the real WWI (or II) didn't happen.

Also, it's pretty fun. The frame rate jerks a little at times, but aside from that no major complaints. You can tell pretty much what the gameplay is like from the vid. There are 2 modes: wave and survival. Also various upgrades.

Of course, what a game like this is really begging for is multiplayer. Funnily enough, the button that takes you to the game is labeled "single player." Whether this means that multiplayer is planned in an update or not, is anybody's guess, but that would certainly add a lot to this game.

As it is, I can still recommend it as a fun little shooter, that's definitely polished in more ways than not, and in addition does not take itself very seriously.
