Description

Winds of Steel is a game for the Android systems that places the player in a position of a pilot during the Second World War, in the campaign the player can choose between several battles such as "Pearl Harbor" or "Tokyo" where he has to complete his objectives in order to complete the mission, objectives are often standard ones like "defend this area", "destroy that target" or "scan that zone". Each mission has its own aircraft that belongs to either the Axis or the Allies forces, the player can not choose which faction to play as. At the end of the mission the player sees his score and he can then replay the mission at any time to see if he can beat his highest score. Beside a Campaign there is also an "instant action" mode where the player can choose an objective without any connection to a historic battle.

The player controls the aircraft by tilting his phone like he is holding a steering wheel, this way the player can fly in any direction and change his altitude. To fire the player must touch the "Fire" button located on the right side of the screen, beneath the fire button is a button that allows the player to switch to his secondary weapons (this is almost always bombs), after switching the player can use his secondary weapon the same way he used his primary weapon. Some missions will start the player out on the ground and to start flying the player will have to touch the fire button to start his engines. If the player is fired at he will eventually lose control of his aircraft and crash, meaning that the mission has ended and that he has lost.
