What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“BOMB single player mode is complete and fully enjoyable, but we took the decision to release the game in early access to improve the multiplayer mode and the balancing of aircrafts, along with fixing some unexpected bugs.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are expecting an early access period of 3 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“More contents, like more maps, more skins, more cockpits. We have not yet decided if the modding tools will come at the same time as the final version or a bit later.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is complete and almost bug-free, but still need some polish.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“There is a 25% discount during the early access.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are open to all kind of suggestion to make the game better, as we already do, as soon as they do not involve a major modification of the game spirit.”

Update MkIIIp

Hi,

We've just released the Mk IIIp patch for BOMB. This patch is mostly related to "mouse control" but also brings some UI improvements.

Here is the complete changelog:

  • New mouse control code. Still not perfect but MUCH BETTER !
  • Added a mouse look toggle key (default: "l alt") to enable mouse look when using mouse control
  • Added a new first person view without cockpit. Press multiple times the "cockpit" view key/button (default "F1") to enable it. Also available for aircraft that do not have a cockpit yet
  • Added an option to change icons opacity
  • Added an option to display distance to enemy aircraft
  • Moved the icons size and opacity sliders to the "HUD" tab of the options menu
  • Keys and buttons options are now sorted alphabetically
  • Fixed icons position
  • Fixed joystick slider axis preview in the options menu

Suggestion for the keyboard setup when using mouse control (if you're right-handed)
  • Use WASD keys to manage roll and thrust
  • Use Q and E for the yaw
  • Map the zoom action to the L-Shift key
  • Map the mouse look to L-Alt

NOTE: This is only a suggestion, you can use whatever binding you want.

Non editable actions: The mouse left buttons fires the internal guns, the right buttons fires the external guns, and mouse wheel switches between external guns.
Of course this may be changed according to player's feedback.

As of Mk IIIb:
Like arcadey flight sims? Have a gamepad or joystick/hotas? Loved Crimson Skies?
Than most likely you're gonna like BOMB.
Nice graphics, amusing storyline, cool art- and overall game- style, pretty good AI.
Controls are not as tight as they were in crimson skies though, that needs some work.
Plus, only one difficulty level for campaign (and not the easiest one) is quite tough (at least for someone like me who sucks using joysticks xD).
Other than that - pretty damn good flight combat sim!

The game is exelent , cool planes, nice graphics, nice hit-box (if you hit an enemy plane he will be damaged no just sparks flying) . but one thing, the controls are ♥♥♥♥ty, you need an joystick or you will suck.
8/10 : want mouse aim control, and more planes.

Early Access Review
Just picked up a copy.. and loving it. It's very reminiscent of Crimson Skies in its inspiration (my first thought was Crimson Skies meets Porco Rosso) and the flight model feels similar to CS in that it's jump in and fly rather than a sit your PPL first simulation.

As has been noted.. the dialogue (English version) could do with some loving, but other than that, it's rather fun. Interested to see just how it develops.. :)

Liking it so far. Better integration of gamepads would be nice, controls are a bit shaky in its current state. [EDIT: Experiment with deadzone settings for analogue controllers to address this]
Nice graphics and everything, would recommend.
The written dialogue is also ropey but who really cares in a flying game

A really cool game !
I missed the feeling of a good flight fight for a long time.
For people liking airplanes games i think its a must have.
The game is really nice with his own style, a special mention to the sea wich is beautiful.
The solo campaign is quite good (i laughed a few times on some jokes) and the multi really upgrade the potential of the game. Even the "escarmouche" mode with AI (wich is pretty good) is interesting and challenging !
With the promise opening of modding i can't see why this game wouldn't be a sucess especially if people start making new content (more planes, more weapons, more everything).
That's it, i'll go see "Marcel" for new adventures !

BOMB is bound to get more and more popular.

The developers have been listening to suggestions in the duscution thread scince the first day and many improvements have been made thanks to that.

If you are looking for an old-school style aircraft game with humour, old-style planes, challenging dogfights and various missions, this is for you !

This game is absolutely fantastic. The gameplay, graphics, and artisitic stylization are unmatched in any early access game I have seen. This game is going in the right direction, and I hope for the best.
