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.

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!

If you like small short time 2D games, this is the right choice for you:

Being in a comic like 2D world, that reminds a little bit of worms, you control one of five fighter planes with each different playstyle and abilitys.
Armed with MGs, Rockets, Lasers and Bombs, you have to shoot down the enemys and survive as long as you can.
The game gives you a leveling system, achievments and with that the ability to customize your choose of abilitys you use.
Ingame you not only fly an shoot but have basic physical elements like altitude, speed and afterburner. If you get to slow while flying up, your engine will stall and you will fall from the sky. Also you can find one use weapons on the map, that will give you rockets, EMP fields and shields.

The game has a lot of game modes like Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, last man standing and some form of capture the ball mode.

Even if it hasnt that big community anymore it still has usable full functional bots, which arent that big challenge, but still decent and dangerous.

Being able to be played with only the mouse, it is a nice game on mobile devices and a short game for long traveling.

The two absolute truths about Altitude:

1 - You'll spend the first 12/24 hours of gameplay just learning not to crash into walls.

2 - Once you become pro with your plane, is one of the most satisfying experiences in videogames EVER.
