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...

... and that’s just the start.
Since its launch in June, DogFighter has been updated on numerous occasions and has delivered on the promises made to our community. As well as the usual bug fixes and polish we have introduced...
  • Joystick Support
  • The DogFighter Demo
  • Dedicated Servers
  • Weapon and Control completely rebalanced
  • A new map, new co-op game mode “Wolf Pack” and the new craft; The Mongoose.
  • Configurable Xbox Controller Support
We here at Dark Water Studios are dedicated to our game and our community. We endeavor to make community opinion part of our design philosophy and are committed to bringing DogFighter players more say in how the game develops. This is YOUR game. Help us make it great.
Get in 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!

Key features:

  • Take to the skies against up to 15 players in classic 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.

Not what I was looking for. Waiting for a decent multiplayer flying game that will not make flying such 2D. If you are looking for a 2.5D plane shooter, then this game may be for you.

It's a neat idea, but it is hindered by clunky controls and some bugs that are pretty frustrating.

Stress Relief game if you are a hard working citizen. Game mechanics are great and the story line is okay. It could have had a more in depth and more longer story line but for its budget they definately deserve a thumbs up for the effort.

7/10 Rating

This in my honest opinion is a must-have, it is fun and has a very 'arcadey' feel to it, and no Pay-To-Win bullcrap, some of the best characteristics in the game are the power ups that aren't permanent and only last for 1 game(Or until you run out of ammo for them). Some of the bad characteristics of the game is the repetitive stalling, although the fun of the battles helps supress that frustration.

93/100

The game is dead,

The sensitivity is either too sensitive or not sensitive enough and getting the game to look and run smoothly is a real pain

Save the money, buy something else.

Neat little game that I could accustom it to Quake or that style of arena FPS but with planes and the constraints of them. Its interesting and somewhat fun, but on Team Death Match when playing in singleplayer the friendly AI are useless unfortunately. Though Deathmatch is still fun but even on hard the AI dont really stand much of a chance against a real human. Since this game is so old though and it was a mainly multiplayer focused game the multiplayer is expectantly dead at this point. No one is online aside from a few crazed and forgotten souls in limbo.

Since it is a multiplayer focused game and dead, and the singleplayer component isn't that challenging or fun I would advise not buying this game unless you have a group already interested in playing the game as you will need other people to play with to get the most out of the game. Though it is some fun to just fly around blasting bots its not that fun for a very long time.

Was hoping this to be related in some way to the fantastic but old dogfigher game where you fly in the house and fight with toys.

The game lacks polish. The UI (menus, dialogs, controls) are aweful. There is no way to control or change the settings while in the tutorial. If I need to invert the axes or change mouse sensitivity I have to quit and restart the tutorial. Enabling realistic flight mode made the plane move like a snake. absolutely out of control. May be the controls are better with xbox controller, but the lack of polish everywhere makes me doubt that. For 2.99 it is probably a very good game for a young kid. But for any serious players its waste of money and slot on steam.
