What I said about Ace Patrol really also applies to Ace Patrol Pacific Skies (except that it has some upgraded graphics), so here we go again:

Ace Patrol is good fun. If you can look past the ugly mobile-phone-graphics it's a pretty deep game with plenty of strategy and tactics. Choose between several missions and complete the objectives using one or more (max 4) pilots. Make enough kills and your pilots will level up allowing them to use more/better maneuvers during battles. This can be critical later on in the game.

You'll also be able to unlock perks by completing secondary objectives. This, for example, allows crashed pilots to get right back into action after being captured by the enemy forces. And yes, better planes can also be unlocked.

Ace Patrol isn't a very long game and it's best played in short rounds, but like I said, it's good fun.

Not a hard game but fun. Fly your planes through a hex grid to shoot down your opponent. A turn based isometric flying game that is quick, easy and a blast.

It's a pretty good game, for a $5.00 game. Some of the animations when the planes maneuver clearly weren't finished or half heartedly put together. Other then that it's a very fun casual game.

The concept of this game is very simple but full of the strategic thinking value. It's highly recommended to those who enjoy thinking while playing games like me. :P

PS. I got this game by buying a 1$ bundles which is exactly worth!

Turn-based lite strategy game about WW2 fighter planes. The premise is really interesting and I think the game mechanics are nicely executed. The planes each have a different feel, and the game does a good job of modeling "energy fighting" (e.g. trading altitude for speed and vice versa) and roll/turn rates (a P40 will roll left/right within a hex; a Zero doesn't roll so good but can sustain a turn to 120 degrees, etc.)

Beyond that... it's a good thing this game is just $5 because it is woefully under-polished, especially for a Sid Meier title. The missions are very repetitive (180 are claimed, but they're really a variation on four or five missions with different enemy planes in them), the animations are clunky, and there are endless small boneheaded things that will annoy you.

It's very good for a tablet game, but I can't give it my full recommendation.
