An action packed experience where you take control of an advanced aircraft and stop the enemy's plans of developing a Level 5 Bio Agent. Engage intelligent enemy aircraft, rocket turrets & dumb buildings just waiting to be bombed to pieces.

Hi !
Great to see you working on this game because I am actually making similar game by myself. Well, I am still not sure what it will be exactly because so far I have only controls built, but they are really good with much more control then for example ones from Luftrauser. Did you tried that game ? Though, the con is that shooting is too precise now, and in the end I needed to make it automatic which altogether kinda lead to a totally different game, some kinda mix between Frantic Frigates and shmup games. I could make dogfighting, but I want that in game player moves his ship mostly towards up ( cause it is launching game with upgrades ), and that each encounter lasts really short so I think for this style dogfighting is not really possible. What you think ? But probably the bigger problem is that I don't have much experience with designing shooters in scrolling arenas, for lot of time now I have been making arena shooters that have levels with size of the screen so no camera movement except for screen shaking of course. ;) Anyway, if you want we can exchange experiences, maybe we can help each other to make better games. This is looking really good so far, and good luck with the game !

I am also wondering are there any games you are inspired by ? I don't know many good 2D dogfighting games.

Hi,
Hawks will provide the player complete 2D control. That is, he can speed up, turn left & right.
This way, I have been able to create a 2D dogfighting experience. It is possible to shoot homing missiles if the enemy is within range & the enemies are able to evade the missiles using their flares.
As for inspiration, I couldn't really find any good 2D dogfighting game but Luftrausers did provide an excellent example of how to use screen shake effectively.
Get in touch with me at mobile [at] pksarena.com if you would like to discuss things further.

Cheers,
PK

There is no support for modding at the moment. If the game takes off, I might look into it based on demand.

I am planning to put a build of my under review, premium game on kongregate before iOS release. Would it be a wise move? #gamedev
