    Good price. Its the best combat sim on app store.

    Question to the developer: is it possible to add 3rd person view?

    I sat down and played this for a while and while it has good points, it's... boring tbh.

    The game runs smooth and fluid on my 2g touch but while I dog fight against 1 plane for a few waves I just get bored, is there more which attack in later waves or is it always 1v1? Also I find it annoying that I had one boost and when this ran out me and the opponent were just running circles around each other until I found another missile, was unable to hit much with the machine gun but that will come with practice.

    So yeah, it feels very empty right now.

    After wave 5 you have 2 planes, afte wave 10 you get 3 enemy planes. Sounds like you didn't play it long enough to get a good feel for the game. Did you go for any pickups? Boost is one of them. Also, the throttle control on the HUD (new for 2.0) lets you move a LOT faster (or slower) depending on your needs.

    Agreed, it IS the best combat sim on the app store! :D

    And yes, 3rd person view is something we're considering.

    Greetings Snakehead Software.

    Flying Aces, IMHO, is a very polished game that has recieved many well executed upgrades, and plays and sounds oh-so-nice. I've had this game since it's release and it hasn't left my front page since. If you are a fan of flight combat games, you will enjoy Flying Aces!

    @SnakeHead, I second that motion for 3rd person player view. You guys are doing a great job, thank you!;)

    One more suggestion: possibility to look around inside the cabin by moving your finger on the screen. It will help much during close combat fights.

    Thanks, I've seriously considered that as an option. The problem to overcome is currently the screen is used for shooting and I really don't like forcing users to use a particular button on the screen (especially due to right vs. left handed players). That said, I do have some ideas around this however so you never know what the future may hold. ;-)

    You can still use the screen to shoot. right?

    At least two ways possible:
    1. moving 2 (not just 1) fingers on screen at the same time
    1. reserve the bottom part of the screen for shooting and the top one for looking

    Anyway i think (and hope) its not so hard to make separate settings for left and right handed players.

    Version 2.5

    Thanks to Snakehead Software, for the v. 2.5 update I recieved last night. Even more control options make flying and dog-fighting very customizable. The best part is: take off for flight and land to re-stock your weapons on an aircraft carrier! This game has recieved useful updates periodically since it's release kudos to Snakehead Software. This game deserves more than the two star rating it currently sits at. =)
