"The flow of the game, along with the graphics are just beautiful. I have to say that Aera may be the first game of its kind that I think that I would want to fly around endlessly doing dogrolls and loops."

Aera is casual flight simulator - flying game for everyone!!!

* Best looking flight game on iPhone/iPod!
* Unique mix of a side-scroller and a flight simulator
* Tilt LEFT/RIGHT to make your plane go UP/DOWN
* Great step-by-step tutorial, will get you flying in no time!
* Different mission types (Aerobatic/Solo, Dog-Fight, Race) plus bonus - Free Flight
* Advanced and carefully tuned physics simulation
* Controls specially designed for iPhone/iPod
* "TimeBack" feature - rewinds time to quickly retry after crashing - no need to start over again!
* Different Locations and Planes to fly
* All the environments are carefully modeled in 3D
* Advanced rendering techniques are used to produce very stylish visuals
* Video Replay - watch the mission after you played it; change angles, pause, and more!
* Fast loading times
* Local WiFi MultiPlayer Game (Duel and Capture the Flag)
* The game was in full-time development for over 7 months!

Essentially, Aera can be defined as casual 2.5D flight simulator.
Playing Aera is like riding a bicycle - you have to practice a little in the beginning, and than it's LOTS of fun.

This is flying game for everyone!!!

******
IMPORTANT: please unplug your iPhone/iPod from computer when playing Aera, otherwise game can freeze occasionally; this issue is being addressed, will be fixed in the update.

If you have problems with controlling the plane - do invert the controls from CONFIG

Holy crap. I think Apple decided to give up on the whole "review" process.

hmmm. The menu image is reason enough to get this.
I'm tempted to TOFTT, but there's been a lot coming out today.

If one more good looking game comes out today, I'm throwing my iPhone out the window... then probably running after it.
