    Now your dreams can come true when you play Vertical Strike Endless Challenge.

    The high freedom of movement in this game lets you dance across the sky, shooting down waves of incoming enemies. As you become familiar with the controls, you will start to discover more stylish ways to take down enemy fighters. Refine your skills and make your own stylish plays!

    My favorite methods are somersaulting behind enemies on my tail, or dive-bombing enemy fleets from a high altitude.
