    I picked this game up the other day when it launched, really great app.

    Graphics and controls are really well done, a little bit of a learning curve at the start, but it doesn't take long before you're doing loops and rolls with ease.

    Only slight down point is the longevity if you don't have someone else to play with over WiFi, the single player campaign can be flown through in a couple of hours if you get use to the controls quick, but the developer has already said that future updates will expand the game's content. :cool:

    One of the best titles to appear in the app store of late imo, and a great price as well.

    Yes, we plan on providing more levels, more locations, and more planes in updates.
    But also, there is a QuickGame mode - once you completed the CAMPAIGN, you can just play in quick game mode any game type you like, selecting any of the unlocked planes. The gameplay is open, you can play mission every time differently, use different tactics in combat, etc.
    Anyway, we wanted to add more content from the very beginning, so don't worry, Aera world will be expanded :)
