I did... its literally flight control but you have to avoid the blues and hit the reds. I like it better than flight control because of the concept. You can attack boats with torpedoes and then tap to switch to missiles for aircraft. I mean it when I say it is very similar to flight control. Not bad in the polish department either.

Game Impressions

I grabbed it and am somewhat impressed.

While I like the general concept of various maps with unique gimmicks but all based on drawing lines for your missiles to take out baddies while carefully avoiding the good guys (as well as trying to ensure the baddies don't run into the good guys), it has a lot of rough edges.

Some of my bigger annoyances:

-Bad guys, even on the same level (like both ground or air), are able to freely pass through each other. This isn't a game breaker but it just feels kind of half assed when you see ships passing through each other. I think it would mean a lot more if enemies of different levels could freely pass through each other (even ships over subs), but on the same planes should need to either avoid each other or at least bump off one another.

-Stretches logic a bit that the baddies are trying to ram the good guys. I think them firing really slow missiles at the good guys when they have a clear shot would be so much more believable.

-Although there are 5 different maps that each play a bit differently, they all share a common highscore list. Since these maps all have such different difficulty levels it makes no sense for them to have a shared scoreboard.

So some neat ideas but it really needs a heavy coat of polish before I could really recommend it.

2.5/5
