Pirate Wings + Lite

http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=310253852&mt=8

A new plane racing/shoot'em up game. A little steep for my blood at $5.99, but if anyone TOFTT on this one, I would love to hear your thoughts on it.

See video: here

Meet Raoul and his strange friends in a new kind of game mixing Race and Shoot them Up.
Use your iPod to ride at full speed on board of flying ships in stunning 3D graphics environnements.

Three game modes are available:

- Races mode with 9 race circuits, 3 different environments (Canyons, Underwater world, Outer Space), 4 characters and 12 ships available for 3 levels of difficulty. Use your lasers, missiles, mines and Boost to finish first.

- Story Mode where you'll discover the incredible adventure of Raoul, a canyon pilot who will ally with the space pirates to avoid the trap of the defiant commander Burp in 19 original missions.

- Ghost mode to improve your lap time and compare your scores online.

My guess is Biplane-Wings of Racoon may be a wiser purchase. Just a guess though.

I was just about to write that. Biplane is a solid arcade flyer.

Oh noes, I was hoping for a spinoff of Pilot Wings (the old N64 title). Twas one of my favorite games.

My guess (man I'm doing a lot of guessing tonight) is someone will make something close to it.

Hmm looks a bit like Crash Bandicoot to me.
