    From the looks of this one, it reminds me a little bit of 1942. Has anyone given this one a try? It has two very positive reviews right now with a 5 star rating, but I question that this early in it's release.

    Looks pretty ugly to be honest. Then again, you should never judge a book by its cover. Still, with that same $1.99 you can get Biplane which is heaps good.

    Biplane...now there's a fun app, and definitely worth it even more so after the update.

    Haven't tried it, but it also reminds me of Sky Fighter (lite version here).

    On a related note - can anyone recommend a good 1942 knockoff? That was one of the first arcade games that I got addicted to!

    I tried it. It's not terrible, but not something I would necessarily recommend.

    acceleromter control. tap on left of screen to shoot. tap on right of screen to bomb. seemed awkward to control.
