Altitude is now free!

Altitude is now completely free. There is no full version to purchase: new players will automatically gain access to all of Altitude's planes and perks as they level up.

Widescreen Support: Altitude's native resolution has been updated from 4:3 to 16:9 (widescreen). Players can now see 25% farther ahead of their plane horizontally and about 6% less far vertically.

Expanded custom server support:

Server Console Commands:
modifyTournament <player> <team> - for adjusting tournament participants while a tournament is in progress (-1=not part of tournament, 0=left team, 1=right team)
overrideBallScore <leftScore> <rightScore> - for manually adjusting scores in ball mode
overrideSpawnPoint <player> <x> <y> <angle> - for dynamic spawn positions in custom game modes
* any spawn attempts by the playerId associated with <player> will use x/y/angle instead of a normal spawning location
* pass x=0,y=0,angle=0 to clear the override and resume normal spawning rules for a target player, otherwise overrides are cleared on map change (after "mapLoading" but before "mapChange") and on player disconnection

Servers can now disallow (or enforce) the use of random plane configurations via a disallowedPlaneRandomTypes block. Edit launcher_config.xml and just before the line starting with "<mapList..." add a block like this (note: this example blocks all random and non-random configurations, effectively preventing any spawning):
Code:

<disallowedPlaneRandomTypes>
<PlaneRandomType name="non_random" />
<PlaneRandomType name="custom_random" />
<PlaneRandomType name="full_random" />
</disallowedPlaneRandomTypes>

Server JSON log message updates:
"kill" now includes "victimPositionX","victimPositionY","victimVelocit yX","victimVelocityY"
"powerupPickup" now includes the powerup's "velocityX","velocityY" at time of pickup

Clients will now automatically leave a server after 5 minutes of idle time only if the server is full (for non-full servers, clients will leave after 60 idle minutes).

1DE (objective) game mode timers have been updated to encourage team play:
* Increased bomb plant time from 1.5 seconds to 3 seconds
* Increased bomb defuse time from 3 seconds to 4 seconds
* Increased bomb detonate time from 14 seconds to 22 seconds

About This Game

Blast your way across the cartoon skies in this fast-paced game of aerial combat. Nimbly Games has crafted an instantly accessible, rewardingly deep, and ravishingly fun multiplayer action game. The sirens have sounded, bogies are coming in hot…
Jump into the fast and agile Loopy and drop your enemies from the sky with a tactical EMP blast - but hit your afteburners before your Biplane support tears them to pieces with 20mm cannons blazing! Barrel roll through the enemy minefield and arm your nuke as you enter the drop zone. There it is - the enemy base - but two Mirandas just warped in with lasers hot and an Explodet is lumbering into position over their hangar decks — will you carry your team to victory?
Multiplayer Done Right: Altitude combines Call-of-Duty style perks with the gameplay variety of Team Fortress 2 in a fresh multiplayer experience. Carefully refined controls, netcode, and balance make for hundreds of hours of deep, rewarding gameplay.
Seven Engaging Game Modes:
  • Plane Ball's constant action makes it a favorite among new and casual players while team-based tactical maneuvers like passing and blocking provide a fun challenge for veterans.
  • Team Base Destruction offers an intense, competitive experience where coordinated pushes and strategic loadout decisions turn the tide. Try a friendly pickup game or join a clan and play in the "Altitude ProLeague" - a competitive tournament scene run by hardcore gamers from the Starcraft and Counter-Strike communities.
  • For the ultimate test of dogfighting skills try 1-life Deathmatch or compete in Demolition for a more tactical, objective-based experience.
  • Or enjoy classic game modes like Free For All and Team Deathmatch.

Fantastic game. It's now free. And by free, I mean no microtransactions, no adds, no anything! Since review date sept 7, there have been lots of players in interesting matches. It's a shame I didn't hear about this before, because its a great game!

This game is a small neat flying arcade style shooter. It is fun and has a varied planes that you can edit. It also comes with an in built level editor and the gamemodes are great. I think this game needs a little more fame and I hope people won't stop playing it.

One of the best underrated multiplayer games. And it's ultra low spec.
Best part of this is the football. You got football played with planes and you can't underestimate how good that is.
5 different planes add some good depth to it.
If you're a beginner- it's worth finding a football server with bots, and learning how to pass and all that. Also there's a good fun tutorial prepared by altitude.
Most common server is 14 people, and sometimes the skill level can be quite high. In which case be maybe a bit prepared for some grumpy players especially if you don't know which direction you're going, don't know how to pass, and go for enormous kill counts and neglecting the ball.
Otherwise, enjoy one of the most underrated multiplayer games on the internet, and which is free as well.

Multiplayer mayhem with airplanes. Play soccer, deathmatch, team deathmatch, base destruction and more. Nice 2D art graphics that compliment the not so serious yet somewhat serious overtone of the game. This game just became free to play not too long ago. Great fun with decent casual physics which makes flying and killing that much more skillful. I had lots of fun when I played this and highly recommend it.

This game is free. It can run on a toaster.

But if you need more reasons to get this game I'll give them to you. It's an acrady plane shooter. You can stall your plain in mid air fall back to the bottom of the map to trick your opponent and shoot em' down. You can play a base deffence game mode or a football (soccer) mode. It's fun fast and requires some skill.

The community is still active! Don't fear. And you can help by playing, again it's free. You have no reason not to try it!

Reminds me of The Airplane Game, which is a badly made flash game on Kongregate. Luckily, this game is much better built, has intuitive controls, and a relatively active multiplayer. Some parts of the interface could be better explained, but it's generally a decent little dogfighting game.

This game is free, its a decent way to waste some time without actually needing to pay anything. Its a "pick up game" which means games are usually short, but supprisingly fun considering the 2d air combat. I'd say its worth your time, I just played it during an hour wait in college, since it requires nothing more than a toaster to run, and you dont even need a mouse, OR you dont need a keyboard. I'd reccomend it if you have nothing else to do, cuz why not, it's free!

Suprisingly fun and requires a ton of teamwork. The art style is very misleading.

It's free. Play it.
