MkIVb hotfix: Come back, BOMB is easy now!

ːresistanceː New features
  • Indeed, the game is hard, so we've added an Easy mode option in the "General" tab of the options menu. This only changes the difficulty in off-line game modes. It may need some adjustments so feedback is welcome.
  • Added an Aim assist option in the "HUD" tab of options menu. This will display a "prediction" gunsight telling you where to aim to successfully shoot at enemies. Only active in off-line modes too.

  • The Billby is now fitted with a - silly - landing gear :)

ːresistanceː Bug Fixes
  • A common crash during Act 2 mission transitions has been fixed
  • Typos fixed and better English translations
  • Music is now playing in the "Welcome to Sidi Bandar" intro

ːwinoː Thank you

I want to love this game, but can't. The initial airplane is such a lumbering dog and no fun to fly or fight in at all and the missions have too many sections with no mid-game saving that I've never made it past the third mission. I was so excited to see a Crimson Skies inspired game, but BOMB just doesn't cut it for me. Maybe later planes are good, but I've nver got that far.

As a minor note the game text is full of typos and the UI is really basic and unfriendly, but I know the team are small and are trying their best, so it pains me to not recommend this game, but I just don't enjoy it. :(

Early Access Review
Have you, or anyone you know

A) Played Crimson Skies?
B) Wanted to live vicariously through an alcoholic frenchman?
C) Experienced terrible customer service that left you foaming at the mouth and require someone to restore your faith in humanity?

If you answered yes to any of those question this game might be right for you!

BOMB allows you to live out your Porco Rosso fantasies such as verbally abusing your companions and engaging in nail biting aerial combat. This game is FUN.

Although it might not be a 100% accurate sim experience it is a nice break from the stress of DCS World/IL2 mechanics, and does not require an expensive Track IR and joystick setup (although joystick is recommended because mouse controls are a bit wonky right now).

There are 3 views, pretty classic, 3rd person, cockpit (my personal favorite) and 1stperson no cockpit (why people fly like this i have no idea) Cockpit features lots of gauges and doohickys, all of which seem to function. Cockpits are also unique for each flyable plane, which seems obvious but is lacking in some other flight games.

It features believable planes that are a cool mix of prop and jet/rocket fighters. You can usually guess which realworld aircraft inspired them by how they handle. Weapons usually consist of your stock machine guns and your choice of cannons/flak guns and other options.

The game features multiplayer but i have not yet tried it, I think ill stick with the story for now.

One last note, the support is awesome. Email with an issue and you can expect a quick reply and fix within days. They're helpful and courteous, and even though my specific issue has yet to be solved they told be to expect a fix in the next patch. Worth a buy for this alone.

My only negatives are that mouse control and optimization could use some work (both are being worked on by the development team)

And that I would like to see more planes added (but to be honest, my ideal flight game features hundreds of unique planes, so take that with a grain of salt)

Happy Flying!

Oh boy, where to begin....
If you want the short version - the game is just not fun.
If you want the long version - read on!

So to start with, here are the pros of the game:
+ Interesting premise
+ The characters seem funny enough at times
+ It's nice to see the devs attempt to emulate Crimson Skies type games.

And here are the cons:

- No tutorial what's so ever, the game is not hard to figure out, but it would have been nice if they included one.

- The mission pacing is awful, the first 3-4 missions last for about two minutes and just make you fly forward requiring minimal input from your end. They could have made them in to a single mission and it would have benefited the game.

- The flight model is arcade, but not the fun type of arcade like Ace Combat. The gravity doesn't seem to affect your plane, it flies the same no matter which direction you chose, be that up or down and the rudders rubberband like crazy. It will swing you back to the direction you came from the moment you release the turn button. I would also like to point out that it feels like you are flying though molasses instead of air.

- The environments look extremely bland and the trees flicker like crazy when you fly over them, the planes look nice, but everything else looks like an late Xbox / early360 game.

- The performance is spotty at best, I was getting frame drops from 80 to 20 while nothing was happening on the screen and it doesn't look like a game that should ever drop below 60 on a 290X even on the highest settings.

- The menus look like they are placeholder, especially the options screen and the mission failure one.

- And the main con of all that just made me quit for good? It just wasn't fun. I love flight game like the Crimson Sky, Ace Combat, Blazing Angels, Sky Crawlers, etc, and this is a disgrace compared to all of them.

I do not recommend this game unless you find it on sale.

Oh my... This game is excellent. It's not easy at all, even though it doesn't model planes realistically. Any comparisons made to Crimson Skies are pretty accurate. I'd say the flight model is similar to War Thunder on "arcade" but the planes are considerably less maneuverable. Considering you're flying a twin engine cargo plane, that's expected.

The dialogue that strings the missions together is funny, brief, and to the point. "Go blow up the thing." There are bombs, rockets, torpedoes, and a variety of cannons that get strapped on the planes. Thankfully the missions do have checkpoints, and restarting a mission after failing is ZERO load time. I'm playing with a Logitech 3D Pro stick and it works perfectly after button mapping. The game is set up for a 360 gamepad by default. It also supports mouse control BUT that isn't quite working just yet. Views are cockpit, 3rd person, and no-cockpit gunsight views. Hold a key/button to momentarily padlock the current enemy, so you don't get lost in all the chaos.

There's multiplayer, and even a dedicated server you can download. I played some skirmish with the AI, and had them turned up a difficulty notch plus had too many of them fighting me, and I can attest the my end was brutal and swift. :-) The only thing I really feel absent is a nice hammy voiceover of the character dialogue. The voice work in Crimson Skies was superb and really brought the game to life. Reading the text balloons just isn't the same. A pretty small complaint considering how much goodness is going on here for $12.
