    [Released]Air Force vs Luftwaffe HD

    Edit: Game's out, you can get it here: Air Force vs Luftwaffe HD.
    --------

    Bitmen Studios is currently working on Air Force vs Luftwaffe, a fast-paced action game for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. You start with an airplane flying missions, gaining experience points and adding more planes to your squadron. We've invested a lot of effort into realistic graphics and animations, but we've invested even more time into game design to make sure that the game is fun - and the favorable feedback from our beta testers makes us pretty confident that we did a good job.

    The game has its own custom physics engine and we've made sure that the controls are responsive to support the fast-paced nature of the game. There's also a wide variety of missions to complete and 12 unlockable, distinct planes to fly. Obvious stuff like leaderborads, achievements, different game modes (incl. an endless mode), upgrades, etc. go without saying.

    For more info about the game, please have a look at » World War II: Air Force vs Luftwaffe (iPhone/iPad) Bitmen Studios – Best in iPhone Game Development.
    Please be sure to check out the official trailer at [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXJDkeu5Hhk[/ame].

    There will be an iPhone/iPod touch and a separate HD version for the iPad.
    Last but not least, a few screenshots from the iPad version to give a first impression:

    I hope you like these first impressions. Please leave us a message or reply in this thread to give us valuable feedback. We'd greatly appreciate to hear from you. If you have any creative ideas, we're always looking for stuff to pack into updates. The game will be released in May as an iPhone and HD version for iPad. Please join us at Twitter @BitmenStudios to stay in the loop.

    After more than 5 months of development and tweaking a lot of details for maximum fun, we at Bitmen Studios are convinced that we've created a great game and the feedback from our external beta testers from the community is very favorable. We're hoping that you'll enjoy the game as much as we do.

    Cheers,
    Mark, Bitmen Studios.

    Sounds like a great title. Too bad you went with just the air force, because the f4u was the greatest fighter of ww2 :)

    Beautifully rendered. I will probably purchase.

    I have lots of great games on my iPad, what do we need to do to get this ported to the Playbook?

    Chance Vought F4U Corsair

    By air force, we mean Royal Air Force and USAAF. It goes without saying that the f4u is in. :) Here's the proof:

    We also have some less famous airplanes like italian aircraft on the Axis side, for example the Macchi MC.202 and lots of others. There are 16 different airplanes in the game right now, some with multiple paintings. We may bring one or the other additional plane in an update if the game sees some success (we have two more bombers in the queue as we speak).

    We've gone a long way to create nice artwork but I can guarantee that the gameplay is where the game really shines. We wasted 5 generations of different AI implementations on the fighter AIs until we were happy with the results and we equally tweaked all other important parts like physics and tilt controls till we had that "feel good" sensation.

    It is no simulation, we have tweaked the game for maximum fun, even though we simulate important parts like gravity, air resistance, acceleration, critical angle, and more. Still, the goal was to create a game that is really fun and we are convinced that we have created a really enjoyable thing here.

    Air Force vs Luftwaffe in Review with Apple

    Air Force vs Luftwaffe has been submitted to Apple for review. Provided Apple doesn't cause any delay, we should be able to release it on

    May 6

    Game will be on promo initially ($1.99 for SD and $2.99 for HD).

    We're already working on additional scenes and local multiplayer is also something we're considering for a future update. If you have any cool ideas then please give us feedback.

    We got a lot of valuable feedback during the beta phase and we were able to incorporate most of the (feasible) proposals (some others landed on the backlog). Nothing beats the community when it comes to creativity. :D

    Are the plane sounds realistic? Gt5 should have been an awesome racer but all the cars sound the same and some don't even sound like their real counterparts, sound imo is critical to the user experience

    Did you include the p-38 lightning? How about a list of all the planes?
    Thanks for the effort!
