Flying Aces First Look

Flying Aces, a new first-person flight combat game from SnakeHead Software, should be arriving soon in the App Store, pending Apple’s approval process.

The developer’s website mentions the game will include some sort of competitive multiplayer, but the wording–”[compete] against other iPhone users by shooting down as many planes as possible,”–makes us think that you won’t actually be flying head-to-head against your rivals. It may be more of a high-score contest. The prominent “boost” button on the HUD also suggests an arcade-style game, rather than a flight sim.

The video doesn’t demonstrate much gameplay; it’s just sea, sky, and the cockpit. But we can imagine the game looking pretty good, once some bogeys get in on the action.
