    This app has potential, but definitely isn't "there" yet. This is my TOFTT contribution for the week. :p

    Lots of engrish/spelling mistakes, basic display and framerate issues.

    This game is going for the feel of the old sega "Afterburner" game.

    Missions so far are repetitive, no landing or takeoffs, verrrry basic (no) flight model, no throttle, no ladder "HUD", not even speedbrakes. (IMHO, Flight model at the least should have turn & climb <--> speed & stalls)

    Also, there's no real indication of when a plane is in missile range (targeting box is always on the enemy, doesn't change at all when the target is in range).

    If the dev (hopefully!!) updates and polishes Dogfighter, this could be a great game.

    It's kind of a smorgasborg/time warp kind of deal. Maybe the dev should have gone the time travel route with this app...might get him some attention.

    I think it looks ok, but RedSTaR is highly trustworthy and so I await his review I think he has a "sixth sense" when it comes to flying games;)

    Micheal vick is going to LOVE this! JK

    It actually looks good, but I will wait until scifly II until I get a dogfight game, just to compare.

    Somehow that joke rings as a FAIL. And yet I can't seem to say that it failed for sure.

    I kinda like this game. You can calibrate the controls and it handles pretty easy. I would like a speed brake in addition to the thrust button, though. It would be helpful when fighting the enemy ace pilot. I seem to be having a bit more fun with this one compared to other flight games currently available, imho.
