Good luck Pilot and bring your plane home safely!

Super Exciting game play including:

- Quick Fights Mode to get right into the cockpit and shooting down the enemy
- Super smooth flying with our adaptive accelerometer control - you'll catch yourself turning and twisting like you're actually flying

This app has potential, but definitely isn't "there" yet. This is my TOFTT contribution for the week. :P

Lots of engrish/spelling mistakes, basic display and framerate issues.

This game is going for the feel of the old sega "Afterburner" game.

Missions so far are repetitive, no landing or takeoffs, verrrry basic (no) flight model, no throttle, no ladder "HUD", not even speedbrakes. (IMHO, Flight model at the least should have turn & climb <--> speed & stalls)

Also, there's no real indication of when a plane is in missile range (targeting box is always on the enemy, doesn't change at all when the target is in range).

If the dev (hopefully!!) updates and polishes Dogfighter, this could be a great game.

It's kind of a smorgasborg/time warp kind of deal. Maybe the dev should have gone the time travel route with this app...might get him some attention.
