The update features multiplayer dogfight and co-op game modes with HD/Retina graphics in single universal build and many other fixes and tweaks!

With the update the game also changes the old name (1951 - World War One) to "Dogfight 1951" to better match the new content along with a new icon.

148apps review (iPhone): "1951- World War One is the prettiest looking top-down RPG-ish shooter I have ever seen, and I think that is saying something"

TouchArcade review (iPhone): "This game is just great [...] 1951 World War One is a very nice variant on the 1942 shooter formula that's extremely well put together. It's visually quite impressive and works you a bit harder than a more typical fire-and-forget shooter."

Featured in Gizmodo's this weeks best apps: "1951 - World War One, a truly beautiful 3D, top-down shooter!"

Touchgen.net review (iPhone): "1951 - World War One is an airborne shooter that has a great balance of atmosphere, quirkiness and genuinely satisfying gameplay! Kudos Treehouse Ltd!"

App Spy review (iPhone): "5 Great!, 1951 - World War One is a classic war-era dog-fighting title with a rock'n roll attitude that can only get better with time."

Engage the enemy in aerial warfare in this fully 3d top-down arcade shooter with light RPG elements. Excellent gameplay and stunning artwork.

Blast your way up the ladder in single player Wave mode or try to stay alive in Survival mode.

Setting

It's 1951 and First World War is about to begin!

On June 28th 1914 separatist assassination attempt against Franz-Ferdinand, Austrian heir of throne, failed miserably. Gavrilo Princip took aim and pulled the trigger only to find his gun clicking, feebly. The gun was jammed and Grand Duke escaped unscathed.

With this single mechanical failure the seed of First World War was never sown, and without the humiliation of Versaille's there was no wind to fan the flames for a second one. Adolf Hitler had to make his living as a mediocre marketplace artist at the streets of Vienna instead of becoming the dangerous, dictatorial dreamer he would otherwise have been. But without two global wars to drive the technology forward the world of 1951 remains much like the world at the turn of the century - colonialism upholding imperial economies and withering alliances cemented with royal marriages. It's Imperialism iced with biplanes and rock'n roll!
