ok first off i love where the game is going, fight giant monsters in an arena where you not only have to fight a collosal machine or whatnot, but you have to watch out for obsticals and stuff. dont be discouraged by all the negative reviews, all things considered this is an indie game. its not gonna have all the top of the line graphics or controls like all the major companies have so dont dis it just cause you cant get passed a few levels. this game is still under development and honestly im liking the potential im seeing in this game.

A few suggestions;
tone down the choppers-already done with recent update
maybe work on third person view that folows the crosshairs (its easier to aim if the screen moves with the plane)
a way to flip when your upsidown- it gets very confusing being upsidown
repair powerups, for when you have a bad case of broken wing
multiplayer boss fights, co-op and/or versus
some story, i wanna know why these things are here, like some evil organization unleashing their superweapons (would explain the choppers)
Pause feature, exploding and starting over isnt the best feature

Im Ive got a youtube channel and i want to feature this game on it as well as watch it grow.

Reading positive comments and seeing the possibility of interesting bossfights, I paid the money to get this game.

It was a terrible decision.

You start on a level without any explanations as to what the objectives are. The controls are extremely oversensitive, steering is almost impossible, let alone collecting any of the gems.

I cannot recommend playing this game. It is what I would call complete trash since it does nothing right but everything wrong.

DISCLAIMER: This is a first impressions review, and NOT a full review, if you want a full review, then please read better reviews then mine

PLEASE NOTE: If I (the reviewer) have played a game that has less than 1 hour of gameplay and is not recommended, means that I did not enjoy or it did not live up to my expectations! Think twice before rating or giving out a comment...

This game looks like it is still in early access, just played for a few milliseconds and I have already found it awful, why on earth is the main menu in 4:3 aspect ratio!?! Then it automatically goes to the resolution I chose! The options are terrible, the controls are awful and utterly broken!

This game is a buggy mess!

NOT RECOMMENDED :(

UPDATED REVIEW: The new control sensitivity adjustment helps a little bit, but mouse controls are still unusable at any setting, and the keyboard controls are still mapped nonsensically: pressing UP makes your plane nose DOWN, pressing DOWN makes your plane nose UP: WTF????????? There's no way to re-map the keys to a more sensible setting. I can't get used to it, and the game itself is not worth the effort: of course all I have seen is part of the first level (the controls are still so bad I can't get any further), but based on that -- I've played Sega Genesis games that were far more well-made and interesting, even today, than this. Deleting. Again. This time forever. Please don't waste your time or money on this drivel.

-----------------------------------

I was really looking forward to this and am terribly disappointed. The controls are INSANELY BAD, to the point where the game is unplayable. Forget mouse control entirely -- useless. Keyboard controls almost as bad. Up sends your plane down. Down sends your plane up. Movement is so out of whack that the slightest touch of the key sends you careering wildly in a direction that you never wanted to go in the first place.

Really terribly disappointing, the game looked really cute and fun. Instead it is an excercise in frustration as you repeatedly plunge into the sea for no good reason. Wish I had not bought this, even on sale. Don't be taken in by the price, it's NOT worth it.
-------------------------
OK, I went back and tried it again. SO VERY MUCH CRAP. Deleting.

Awesome game. Lots of cool bosses to destroy with unique abilities. Controller is best but keyboard works too. Can't go wrong for the price.

Press esc too pause the game plane explodes.
Select mouse to fly the plane default key to fire space??? Seems mouses dont use buttons in 2015
No sound options to stop the music or reduce the volume
No options at all
First mission no clue what to do. Get gems? Or kill the weird helis? is that the goal, if yes how about some info ingame?

For now this is not recommend until atleast i see all of this fix to try playing the game. Right now this feels like a rush game release on steam once again.

Horrible textures and overall bad model quality.
It's not fun, or in any way accurate to control the plane.
No ingame option menu, only standard Unity launcher available.

Just don't buy it...

Worth my 10 dollars.
I've only played the first mission, but so far I'm very entertained. Controls are easy to use (I recommend a controller first, mouse second), graphics are decent, objectives are clear, difficulty isn't too easy or too hard for me. As indie games go I like this game and recommend it. I made a quick video of my first time playing if it anyone would like to see it. I will upload it to my YouTube channel.
