Bombshells: Hell's Belles is an aerial combat game for Mac OS X, iPad and iPhone that puts you in charge of one of over 200 planes with cannons, missiles and guns to shoot opposing planes. The free version of Bombshells: Hell's Belles is limited in terms of leveling options, but you can of course buy upgrades and special features from the publisher. Bombshells: Hell's Belles installed easily on both our MacBook Pro and our iPad.
Bombshells: Hell's Belles is going to take a little practice to get the hang of the controls (if you're using a mouse, you'll find the pitch controls work the opposite of what you would expect). The graphics are cartoonish and a little sexist but well done. Having said that, the controls are easy to learn through a few tutorial levels, and the planes are easier to control with the iPad than the MacBook; we did find the game quite engaging on both platforms. Bombshells: Hell's Belles isn't going to win any awards from flight simulation fans, but as a quick shooting game it is engaging.
Bombshells: Hell's Belles was fun. After you get a hang for the controls (especially on Mac OS platforms) and the gameplay fictions, you'll either love this game and be hooked, or get bored quickly. The constant hints about buying upgrades are there, but you can still get a lot of fun from the free app.
