About This Game

DogFighter is a fast paced, arcade aerial combat game with arena style gameplay values. Players can compete against up to 15 opponents in 4 multiplayer modes, or go solo in 7 single player game modes, using beefed up biplanes sporting over 20 different offensive and defensive weapons...

Key features:

  • Take to the skies against up to 15 players in classic online multiplayer game modes such as Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Capture the flag flag as well as the all new Wolf Pack Co-Op game mode.
  • Use several advanced server options to enable variations on the normal game modes by including the likes of Insta-Gib, Turbo Mode and Black Death.
  • "Easy-to-fly" flight model with the controls you need to execute advanced manoeuvres such as Barrel Roll and Immelmann Turn.
  • Beautifully created environments that are as much a player in the game as the people piloting the craft.
  • With 8 unique craft and over 20 different weapons and defensive measures, DogFighter caters to all game play styles.
  • Online leaderboards and friend tracking.
  • Steam Cloud supported.
  • Includes Steam Achievements.

  • A new map, new co-op game mode “Wolf Pack” and the new craft; The Mongoose.
  • Configurable Xbox Controller Support
Take to the skies and deal lead death to your enemy using a state-of-the-art flight model that gives players unprecedented command of DogFighter’s craft. Complete control of the craft, combined with easily executed advanced manoeuvres such as the Barrel Roll, give DogFighter players the tools they need to master the skies.
With environments built to both slay and save you, the environments in DogFighter offer the player a more interactive experience than is usual for the genre. Players can enjoy piloting their craft down mining tunnels, through pyramids and active volcanoes, in environments designed to deliver a more varied, more interactive gaming experience. Fly low, fly fast!

A complete waste of time, money and space. The only reason i played this game was that I received it for free. After having it in my library for like a year I decided to give it a go. I only played the tutorial and an offline deathmatch and understood how ♥♥♥♥♥♥ this ''game'' was. I wouldn't give a cent for this game. Terrible graphics, the controls suck and it is no way fun. I wouldnt recommend this game to anyone unless you want to punish yourself. There are better games than this out there and some are even free to play

Has no singleplayer campaign or anything like it. Multiplayer has been dead for half a decade. Basically all you can do is run deathmatch, wave survival, or time limit killing against bots. All of it basically boils down to the same thing, as you use the same 5 pickups, and every level is the exact same because it doesn't matter what's in the background since you're up in the sky. Gets boring and repetitive fast. Impossible to manuever quickly or make fast/tight turns with the mouse controls, which is what this type of game is all about. Interest in this lasts about as long as the Wright brothers first flight, 1 minute. 3/10

Do not buy! It is awful! bad physics, stupid combat. The whole game seems like a game from App Store with power-ups. I've seen better on App Store tbh

DogFighter is a very stressing game, you're constantly looking at the count down and searching for those last few points. Overall is a good game, however it get a bit repetitive despite the increase on the difficulty.

kinda fun from what i remember online with friends.. I had poor net connection at the time. Would liketo play again with friends. Also if using xbox pad.. do not check the check box for it.. as it puts a large deadzone in the controller. you can still use the xbox pad just go to joypad tab to change keys, there are some sensitivity settings in there also when changing the sticks for up and down or left and right. and also set teh to sliders to about 40 on the 3rd tab. If you cant get it to work well add me on steam and ill send you my control file.

DogFighter, you're fine and all, but everytime I'm with you I'm closing my eyes and thinking of Wing Commander and I know that just isn't fair to you but I just can't help it baby I loved her first and you remind me so much of how much I miss her and how much I miss being young and alive and I NEED TO FEEL ALIVE AGAIN, DOGFIGHTER. I NEED TO FLY HIGHER THAN YOU CAN TAKE ME.

THE GAME IS WORTH IT


I got it for free from a giveaway for the anniversary of the game.
I'm really impressed of the game. Its the best Flight action/arcade game I've played so far. However, it does not have a big player basis. A small number of people play it, but its really worth it and there are a lot of more hours of fun for me discover in the game :).
I can't recommend you to buy it, simply because I did not buy it myself, but if I did, I would recommend it to you to buy it.

You get what you pay for.
a fun but limited deathmatch game that has no one playing online

the bots you play against are way too easy and they cheat like crazy. unlimited boost, they tailgate you forever while airbraking. they dont stall but you do.
they are way too easy, very repetitive and only become dangerous in groups
(even on the hardest setting)

it could use better controller support,
allthough it works well enough using one.
the way they work make menu choices slow and tedious.
instead of jumping through the options,
a controller gives you a slow moving arrow as you use a mouse.
ingame they work well enough

the multiplayer part is dead, no one online

i give it a 6/10 overall.
would be more if there actually was anyone online.

it's ok for some mindless fun

Crap controls for casuals. But they ARE trying to fix it. It's only two bucks and fifty cents, what could go wrong?
