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.

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.

OK, so my expectations were really low when I downloaded the game because the game didn't look very fun from the screenshots... But I gave it a try anyway... And am I happy I did it? Hell yes! I found an amazing airplane soccer game! Like, really... There the "Kill everybody" and the "Destroy enemy's base" missions, but the "Plane Ball" is defenetly the funniest of all! Online, it's kinda hard 'cuz there isn't any teamwork at all... But playing with 19 AI is just the complete mayhem!

Altitude is past its prime in server population, but it is easily the best 2D multiplayer combat game I've ever played.

This game knew exactly what it wanted to be and accomplished it beautifully.

The controls are simple. The gameplay is straight forward. The different game modes are interesting.

It's easy for beginners and has a very high skill cap. This is one of the very few games I've ever played where I can stop playing it for a week then jump right back in whenever I want and feel comfortable and relaxed. It's like riding a smooth bike.

When I think about this game, I think of a multiplayer space shooter game I played a long time ago called SubSpace. I feel this is a spiritual successor.

Play this game while you can, before it's gone forever.

Great game, I bought it years ago and have logged a very impressive number of hours. the game play is simple. but the battles get intense especially between players of approximately even skill level. It has a core of die-hard players at the heart of it's community. There is enjoyment in this game for all skill levels. High level of play between veteran players.

Congrats! This is far beyond a great game. It is really fast, probably would work on every computer, and it's great fun. It doesn't ever lag, well, I have Windows XP Professional SP3, so it would never lag on newer versions. Too bad this game is forgotten, or many people would play it! Still a great game.

Little and fun aerial combat multiplayer game. Even after many years there are people playing it. Since it's now free to play there is no reason why you shouldn't at least check it.

This is the most underrated multiplayer game available, bar none. Seriously, I invite you to leave a comment telling me of an even less-known game that's as good as Altitude. It's a crazy, fast-paced arcade shooter where little cartoon planes mercilessly eliminate one another with the help of biological weaponry. Do you want to play football in the mines of Moria, with all the players as magic teleporting spaceships? Of course you do. Download this (tiny) download. Play it. It's free. What is there to lose?

I haven't played a lot of this game but from what I have seen this is a very fun and addicting game not the best game out there but it is fun it's a fast download and its free! I would recommend this game to anyone whos bored, but it does have a few down falls, one of them being it's very hard to make your own server and connect to friends and the controls can be a little bit tricky every now and again over all rating 6.5/10 (Keep in mind I've only played like 16 min of this game) -Amazin grpahics -controlls alright -mulitplayer could be better
