French developer Florent Tournade, who contributed to Alone in the Dark and WALL•E for modern consoles, just wrote in to alert us of a combat flight simulator that he will be bringing to the App Store later this month or early next year.  Kerosen 3D presents the user with a planet editor through which various terrain details can be set, after which an entire fractal planet is generated.

The player can rotate the planet and zoom down to ground level on any given point (Google Earth style) and choose that as a starting point for the combat flight simulation.  The game features a 3D engine capable of rendering around 1 million polygons per second.  Multiplayer via WiFi is available and may be updated to internet multiplayer in a future update.

Have a look at a demo video posted by the developer.

There aren't a lot of details beyond this available right now.  Stay tuned for more information on Kerosen 3D as it becomes available and a closer look once it hits the App Store.

    Looks a lot better than your average fractal topography!

    Looks like overkill to me. I think the frame rate agrees.

    Time will tell I guess.

    I'm not too bothered if there's *no* flight sim in it. It's still cool, being able to make thousands of planets, and zoom them like Google Earth!

    I agree that the video needs to be edited down. It would be good to start with the flight sim for about 3-4 seconds and then show the generation of a new map in short edits and then go back to the sim.

    Fat phil, frame rate looks fine, doesn't it? In fact, it seems VERY impressive for what is on screen.

    This should be a simulator where you can fly planes. If it was, the developer could have a much higher price in the App Store. It would seem much more like a "Flight Tycoon" kind of game where you could create your own planet along with your own planes.

    You do fly planes in this, did you watch the video?

    Also, to everone who said it was over kill or complained.

    First its a rough demo of the game, second, if the console can handle it why NOT?
