Under rating threshold (show) Would adding a game mode to make this game like "Epic War" style be a good idea? If you could control one plane, but release a bunch minions every so many seconds in a battle of east vs. west... that´d be really cool.

New game mode will come soon, your approach seems to be original I consider that in development. Thanks!

Under rating threshold (show) This game was awesome, and appreciate the Dev responses. A sequel would be good. I'd like to see bigger differences between the planes and missions, and maybe different upgrades for the different planes. Still going to give it a 5 star because it was fun and I can come back and play it agian.

Unfortunately, I was unable to add all of the aces into the game. There are many great aces missing like Belgian Willy Coppens etc.

Under rating threshold (show) hey everybody try mixing Machine Gun with Twin Gun and Burst Gun.That way you can be a all arounder range gunner and if you buy the Impact Bombs then buy the Proximity Detector

Developer response from wideanglegames

One of the small secrets of the game, you are able to mount two machine guns at once! I personally rush on Twin machine gun and use it with standard Machine gun. Then I rush on Malicious parachute and from that point, the game is easy I you know how to use the weapons.

Under rating threshold (show) Make this game multiplayer.

Developer response from wideanglegames

Hi, that was my former intention, to make a multiplayer airplane game. However I implemented the game in actionscript2 and old flash technology and it does not allowed me to make such mutiplayer games without struggling with network lags. So only hotseat multiplayer has left. You can play the game with your friends on one computer, just hit Play->Multiplayer. Maybe the sequel of the game will be pure online multiplayer ;) Or download concurent product. I personally love "www.altitudegame.com"

Hi, sorry but I'm not a musician nor a thief. I've downloaded the music from flashkit.com, just like thousands of developers do. So If you feel I'm a thief, then 80% of all gamemakers are thieves. It is highly probable that civilwaranimated.com took the music from the same source as me.

Under rating threshold (show) At level 12 enemys somethimes get infinite lives, why?

+ - !

(-2)

Developer response from wideanglegames

One of the enemy airplanes has a device called "emergency parachute". He has 50% to save his life when criticaly hit in the air. However, he cannot save his life when crashed on the ground. To beat such enemies make them crash to the ground by using "malisious parachute" or "emp" weapon. Or just buy "emergency parachute" so you have the same advantage :)

Developer response from wideanglegames

Hi, you can, but not directly. If you rise steeply you slow down. If you turn nose down and dive from top of the screen to low altitude and then pull up to not crash, you gain speed.

Under rating threshold (show) Please,pleasepleaseplease, add an arena mode, just like bloon def but without bloons. I want to shoot stuff, not protect bloons from planes inside em.(maybe make bloons ignore fire from friedlies? annoying to get a plane out ot it) Got to lvl 18 in def so far, maxed out, any more challenge there? Anyway, 5/5 since a dev actually watches over his fun game.

Developer response from wideanglegames

Hi, thanks for a good idea. I think that this wouldn't be a problem to make it, if you have more detailed concept of the game mode in the head, please let me know. Now, if you want to shoot everything, go to Multiplayer, and set the planes as you need and play. In Multiplayer/Custom mode you can shoot everything you like :)

Everything has its reason buddy. "Armor" upgrade is the answer to your question. If you buy armor, your plane is able to sustain more damage.

Targetting system could help some players, but we, the pro players do not need it :) Targetting system is good when tail gun is purchased, in this case you are able to aim better backwards. Same to bombs, it shows you when to drop bombs (I hope I have implemented this feature :) )

Under rating threshold (show) great game, was lots of fun. But upgrades need a little more balance. Specifically, speed has more of a negative impact than a positive one. You get in front of the enemy you're chasing, instead of being able to throttle back, and it completely eliminates any benefit from agility. You're better off never going above 2 stars on speed.

+ - !

(-1)

Developer response from wideanglegames

You are right, not all upgrades are needed to be purchased. Every player must find out which combination is suitable for him. I personally prefer upgrading agility, thrust instead of speed, just like you. Speed is ok, but if you buy it you have to compensate with agility. And speed is possible to gain using diving maneuvre.

Developer response from wideanglegames

The real beauty of this game is, that just shooting is not enough. You have to think even about good configuration or weapon build. If you have trouble with such enemies that have emergency parachute, use your wisdom instread of brute firepower. If you buy malicious parachute (cheap) or EMP (more expensive) and make him crash, he cannot escape death :) Try this and nothing will stop you! :D

Under rating threshold (show) I'm really hating the last level. That white out glare is painful on the eyes after a while. It's ridiculously unbalanced, unless you get a huge slice of luck. It's also impossible to tell whether your secondary weapon is available or not.

+ - !

(5)

Developer response from wideanglegames

the white out glare is the result of NUKE explosion. The last level is easy if you know how to take that bastard down. Just a tiny amount of luck is needed. Buy "malicious parachute" weapon to take him down and "emergency parachute" so you have 30% chance to save your life after he kills you.

Under rating threshold (show) Great stuff! REally enjoyed this. Keeping the money when you fail a mission really helps - I think I found the second mission hardest of all until I got some upgrades. Couple of issues: the continue campaign button is tiny, should really be swapped with the new campaign if there's a campagin already active (I nearly wiped my save by mistake); when I continued my campaign, my rank went back to 1; on the semi final qualifier, if the airship goes off the edge of the screen, it never comes back (not sure if that's intentional). But this is seriously addictive!

Developer response from wideanglegames

Hey, I'm glad that you like my game. Good point, writing down your notices, I fix it soon. According to airship, it comes back and appears on the opposite edge on the screen, but is takes time, since it is flying slowly :)

Under rating threshold (show) Advanced weapon rack doesn't work for me. It give me 1 more slot, but when i buy new weapons it says that all my slots are full.

+ - !

(0)

Developer response from wideanglegames

Hi, it is not a bug, advanced weapon rack allows you to mount one more weapon och each type primary/secondary. Generaly you are able to mount 2 primary and 2 secondary weapons at once. When you buy advanded weapon rack, you are able to yield 3 primary and 3 secondary weapons (indicator next to the airplane graphics). But to buy them you have to have free slots at the right bottom inventory (mounted devices). I recommend to buy "extra cargo storage" first, it ads one more row of slots into your mounted devices inventory. Then you can buy "advanced weapon rack".

Hi, the main problem is that the game runs on Actionscript2 which is slower then AS3. The only think I can recommend you is to toggle the graphics quality to a suitable level (top right corner button - toggle to LOW value)

Under rating threshold (show) loved it just two issues though. 1: if you emp a plane it only counts as a kill if they are under the status effect even though they come out of it micro seconds from the ground. 2: i have activated emp and killed my opponent after my "pilot" is dead. how does that work? 5/5 anyway.

+ - !

(1)

Developer response from wideanglegames

1)When you cause stall (malicious parachute, emp, acoustic rifle) to enemy plane and it recovers 1 microsecond before touching the ground, you unluckily don't get kill. This is hard to determine when to add kill to stats or not. So I decided to trigger it only when enemy touches the ground stalled. 2) it's a bug not a it's a feature. If you get criticaly hit, you can still fire weapons no matter if "pilot hit" message appears or not :) A big thanks for voting!
