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.”

Mk IV RC5

This patch is mainly about performance and rendering improvements.

All platforms
  • Overall performance improvements.
  • Better stability
Windows
  • Added an option to change the renderer used by the game. See note below
  • The game is now compatible with Windows XP
Linux & Mac Os
  • Better shadow quality

Important note
With this patch, Windows users now have the choice to play in Direct X11, DirectX9 or OpenGl mode.


By default, the game uses DirectX 11 renderer, which was was the one used before. Performances are by far better in DirectX 9, so if you are experiencing framerate issues, please try this mode. Rendering quality should be almost the same, except some minor details regarding shadows.


The OpenGL mode is also pretty fast (faster than DirectX 11) under windows on both AMD and nVidia cards.

However, on linux, we still recommand people to own an nVidia as their linux drivers are more optimized, especially for older cards.

About the shadow improvements in OpenGL, a pic is worth a thousand words, so here is a "before/after" picture of the shadows in OpenGL mode.




We're still working on the mission creation tutorial. It's quite complicated as we want it to be as clear as possible. This tool is powerful and therefore not very friendly to use, that's why it takes so much time :)

Mk IV RC1

Hi,

This is it ! The OSX version has landed ! Bring out the Champagne !

WARNING:There still may be some issues with the OSX version.
A known issue is that the game may not exit properly, a workaround is to press cmd + alt + esc and force the app to quit.
If you have trouble please tell us about it in the support forum or send us an e-mail to support@lamoustache-studio.fr

This patch is meant to be the last one before we get out of the early access.
Of course, this doesn't imply we'll stop to improve the game or to add new features.

General
  • OSX Version !
  • Added a small altimeter to the HUD
  • Added a button "Next skin" on the aircraft selection menu. You can still change the skin using "up" and "down" keys

Cockpits
  • Added a cockpit for the Chikara CK50 Kani
  • Reworked the cockpit of the S.N.A.F Rorqual

Full joystick and TrackNOir support makes this my current favorite game. It's basically a Porco Rosso/Tailspin sim.

Early Access Review
I can't figure out how this one slipped by my radar, but I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it out. The flying places itself nicely between arcady flyers such as Ace Combat and more advanced games such as the IL2 series. Although not required, a decent joystick setup makes this game a joy to fly, and it even supports TrackIR for those who are serious about their flight simulators (Oculus Rift support was added recently as well).

The aerial combat is reasonably plausible, and a working knowledge of advanced combat maneuvers will come in handy as the AI seems to be subject to the same rules of physics as the player. The storyline gives a bit of background to the fuss and although not perfect, it does the job reasonably well.

The missions are varied and there are actually some flying challenges in there (tricky landings) that is fun to pull off. The views are almost on par with what one would expect from a flightsim, and I primarly fly from the cockpit view with TrackIR. BOMB reminds a lot of the old Microsoft title Crimson Skies, and although this is a much smaller developer, the visuals are very pleasing and very functional.

If you are not into flying games or flight simulators this game is probably not for you, but I can highly recommend this to any flightsimmer that enjoys "seat-of-pants" flying. I really hope the game does well and that the developer has a passion for this type of game. With the current graphics engine and development skills, if applied correctly, this is perhaps an outfit that can bring us the next iteration of Origin's Strike Commander (one can dream, right?). Good luck to La Moustace Studio!

Successor to Crimson Skies, needs more players but it's worth the cheap price even for single player.

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!

Early Access Review
Still early access, but it does show some promise if you are looking for a casual plane shooter in the lane of warthunder, but with a much smaller, more casual aproach and in less serious setting and more fun-oriented gameplay features

on the plus side

great setting
nice comic looks
lovely detailed, but rather small maps
nicely diverse planes
Cockpits with working dials
basic flight modeling
ok ai

on the minus side (as from my perspective)
a bit too simple flight modeling (no snap rolls, no stalls, no spins)
cluncy campaign story representation (at least in english)

open:
multiplayer plane balancing
multiplayer weapon balancing
mission design (campaign so far is slightly repetitive and not very compellingly presented)

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!

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.. :)

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 ♥♥♥♥♥♥, you need an joystick or you will suck.
8/10 : want mouse aim control, and more planes.

Early Access Review
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 !

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

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.
