‘Skies of Glory’ Released to App Store

SGN’s followup of the outstanding dogfighter F.A.S.T. comes in quite a different skin: WWII planes.  I’m not a big fan of WWII fighter planes as they’re not as weapon-heavy as the more modern dogfighters (that only seems reasonable), but for the price of free, I can’t complain.

Skies of Glory is basically F.A.S.T. with a WWII skin.  It includes online multiplayer, single player missions, and other options.  The game itself is bundled with tons of DLC, including 10 missions and 1 new plane for $4.99.  DLC seems to be a bit on the high side with one plane costing up to $2.99, and local WiFi and bluetooth multiplayer features can be purchased for $1.99.

I’m not sure about the whole “nickel-and-dime” method taken by SGN, but the game itself is very well made.  I would have to say that with my brief time with the online multiplayer, the controls are solid and online play is smooth.  There’s only one weapon on the ship you’re given though, which unsurprisingly, is a machine gun.

About Daniel

I have been an iPhone game addict ever since the NES emulator came out on the 1.1.4 iPhone 2G. After 2.0 and the App Store came out, my iPhone homescreen has never been the same. Other than writing reviews for App Store games, I play soccer/football, American football, volleyball, and golf. I love going to the beach and fishing on the pier. Some games not available on iPhone/iPod Touch that I truly love are the Call of Duty series, Guitar Hero III, Madden NFL 09, and PGR: Gotham Racing.
