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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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 game is pure awesome. Here's four reasons why.
First of all, this game is simple and easy to pick up, yet it still provides a challange to players of any skill level and is quite addictive.
Second, this game is unbleliveably addictive.
Third, although there are only five planes to choose from, the perks make the planes diverse and useful in thier own way- allowing for a wide range of play styles
Fourth, and probably best of all, this game is totally free!

ONE negative point though- how are you supposed to get those skins if the point system that you get them with is discontinued?- I could be wrong, and there be a way to get those skins, but other than that- THIS GAME IS AWESOME! WHY ARE YOU SITTING HERE READING THIS WHEN YOU COULD BE PLAYING THIS PERFECT EXAMPLE OF FREE-TO-PLAY GAMES DONE RIGHT?!
