jet1SGN has released screenshots and some details about their upcoming dogfight game for the iPhone.

The unnamed title will deliver an accelerometer controlled flying game that will allow you to battle others around the world over WiFi.

The social fighting feature is a key element that Social Gaming Network's developers will continue to evolve as it serves CEO Shervin Pishevar's vision for platform agnostic game play that engages people in a unique and entertaining way.

The game is expected to launch in early June and will be offered as a free game. According to TechCrunch later upgrades will be offered as pay add-ons once iPhone 3.0 arrives.

SGN is also responsible for popular existing iPhone titles such as Agency Wars, iBowl and Mafia Respect and Retaliation.

Update: SGN has clarified that there will be Free and Premium versions and the game will only be playable over WiFi.

    BUT it's not allowed to have in-app purchases for a FREE game ;)
    If Apple throws that rule over board, that would be horrible!

      Ha Ha! Looks like we were thinking the same thing :)

        We all thought that. My guess is when the 3.0 comes out it will become a paid game.

    Very interesting, however I think they may be surprised to find out you can't use the in-game purchase system in a free (as in zero cost) game. I'm pretty sure Apple expressly forbids it, or at least that was their statement at the 3.0 introduction. That means they'd need to charge 99 cents for this if they want to have paid downloadable content.

  • ricky

    i almost never have wi-fi enabled on my touch, so this game is completely worthless to me if it doesn't have AI & singleplayer combat.

    • http://picasaweb.google.com/silviantrius diabolus

      Yes, ths game needs a Single Player...

    • Tim

      games that don't have a single player are worthless - period.

    They're misinformed, you can't put paid add-ons on a free game. Although, I don't know their rules about releasing it free, then bumping it to 99 cents, then charging for addons.

    They probably just plan to release a paid version later--and that one will be the "full" version with the add-on system.

  • Mr. Charley

    As posted above, they'll release a "free" version but it will be limited, and then you'll need to buy the "full" version to unlock everything, including unlocking your wallet to fund the game.. :)
    Then, just like they did with Agency Wars, they'll change the gameplay in essence breaking the game you've bought (yeah, I'm not bitter!) hehe

    These guys are probably going to charge $5 for every weapon upgrade, $5 for every additional campaign, $5 for additional "respect points", $5 to play the ad-free version. They'll probably make millions, but not a buck from me .... they suck the Krunkle.

    • ticookie

      Yes, because they are opting to sell extra things means they're gonna completely scam everyone...

    SGN... Re creators of Agency Wars???? Nooooooo.....!!!!!!!!!

    Seriously, if they're taking a leaf out of their Agency Wars playbook, the free app will give you a small taste with crippled features and offer a dizzying range of prices for full apps. And if you want to succeed and survive, you need to cough up.

    Imagine starting with a Spitfire, but you are up against a F-15. You will have to pay through the nose to upgrade to that, or a F-22 raptor, and even then you still need to pay x dollars per homing missile.

    Good luck to those who will try it, but be aware of the costs involved. I'm going to stay away from SGN games.

    Oh, they also change the rules and rewards as you go along, so don't be surprised to find out that your maxed out F-22 does no damage to your opponent who may have paid US$99 for some invulnerability patch or invisibility..... It's not beyond them to do so if money's involved... :(

    I'm sure we can all see where this is going to end up...
    Sure the game may be free, big deal. I'm willing to bet that the downloadable content is stuff that makes your more powerful, that way if you have any interest in competing, you will need to download the best stuff.

    My idea (not original):
    Make downloadable content ALSO unlockable by playing the game.
    EA does this with their NFS titles, they offer the player the option to pay for a better car (real cash), or they can simply play through the game and earn.
