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.

I wrote a review over a year ago and deleted it because of the backlash from the community. Decided to write it again to inform people about a few things.

The game has two big problems:

1. Lack of new players

Most of the servers are empty. The game is dead.

2. The attitude towards new players

Just check out these pictures for example

You guys NEED new players to keep the game alive. And you just keep pushing them away. You're killing your own community.

I played the game for a few hours and had fun. Until I got into an argument with some "old veteran" who liked to votekick noobs from the server to make room for his friends to join. I got votekicked and couldn't play on that server anymore. There were not many servers to play on. Maybe 2 or 3. I didn't touch the game since.

There are some people who are nice to new players but if the majority of the community are self-centered elitists, the game is going to die. It already has died.

The first time I played this game was back in 2010 as part of a free weekend, it was the most fun I had had in a 2D sidescroller and I instantly fell in love with it's style, varied gamemodes and friendly community, however after the free weekend I never got around to buying it and it fell off the radar for me.

I finally came back to the game towards the end of 2015, hoping to relive those happy moments 5 years ago.
What I came back to was not the game I remembered. The game was deserted save for 2 football servers (the only gamemode that seems to be played nowerdays). Never the less I hopped in and started playing, 2 minutes later someone in chat say's "Lol this guy (me) has only played 5 hours" and from there almost everyone on the server started judging me, criticising my every move and mocking every missed shot until I was eventually vote kicked.

This game has changed for the worst. Gone is the variety. Gone is the friendly community. All that's left is a tiny, niche playerbase consisting purely of veterans that push away new players.

What a sad fate for such a fun game.

"Planes" starring Dane Cook!

It's free.
Easy to learn.
Simple gameplay.
Multiple game modes.

Can get boring after a while.
Not many active servers anymore.

Overall Rating: 7/10

Altitude is a fun and nice game.
It doesn't require high specs, so good for low level computers.
It's really addictive.
You can play this game casually but there are also high-skilled games
Just a really nice game, 11/10

I've played this on and of since 2010 - other games come and go, but I keep coming back to this. It has the most hours on my account for good reason.

Very well balanced with lots of variety in planes, maps (plus a map editor) and game styles / objectives.

A small but active (and awesome) community.

... And now is free!
