About the 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.

Simple but fun. Can be hard to put down once you start playing.

Altitude is mostly dead now, but if you can get it cheap and a group of friends to play it with you it is a lot of fun.

A few years ago I had a lot of fun with this game. Not sure if it's still alive/active or whatever and I can't exactly find out since my account is just, I don't know, gone? It's weird.

It was really fun, though. Like a lot of games that have an overall account level, though, it wasn't the most balanced. Later upgrades and planes were just, you know, objectively better than starting things. The ships aren't necessarily rock-paper-scissors in design but there are elements like that to them. Having said that, the starting ship is probably the best one, which is good for beginners.

Regardless, the ships were balanced enough that you could play whatever and probably be fine in most situations. The game modes were varied enough. You had death match and team death match, yeah, but there was also a mode where you destroyed an enemy base, and another where you effectively played soccor with the space ships. I really liked the last one, but they were all fun and I'd play whatever when I did.

Controls were fine, graphics were fine, sounds were fine. The only problem I ever encountered were some latency issues, where people would just appear to teleport somewhere else or where you were clearly disconnecting (everyone was falling or flying into walls).

Yeah, every now and then I boot this up and try to figure out my old account, or to make my old account work, but it never happens. Had a lot of good times and I would totally play some more, if not a lot, should I ever fix that. Good game, if you see it on sale, do check it out. Assuming it's still alive. It might not be!

The edit: game is mostly dead except for old elitists, apparently. Shame. Guess they are a pretty closed off community and not friendly to newbs. Oh well. RIP altitude.

A few years back, this game was great. It had a small community but enough to make the game worth playing. As of now there's probably only a few dozen people playing.

I wouldn't recommend purchasing it now unless it's extremely cheap and you're curious, but during its active lifespan it was a great game.

8/10
