By Michael Howard Free

You start as a cold war chopper pilot caught in a proxy war between a capitalist city state and a communist one. Later you get to fight in tanks, subs, jet fighters, WW1 biplanes, aircraft carriers and the occasional flying saucer. There's a tutorial plus options for autopilot, target practice, Cyberspace, Xmas, 2-player with WiFi or Bluetooth, and sandbox, where everything comes to life and you can drive & ride everything that moves.

This game is a challenge, but once you're up to speed and deep into the high-octane madness it's the most exciting adrenaline rush on the app store. While everyone else is staring at their phones in a vacant trance, this will have you punching the air and screaming out loud.

Quick Tips:

To see the last message during Tutorial, tap pause.

To exit to the menus from in the game, tap the door.

To change controls (joystick/gyro) or graphics (for snowballs & lasers), go to the options.

There's lots more tips & help in the app & on the web site.
