Description

Arcade-style mission-based combat-free flight simulator.

Features 10 different aircraft (7 of which must be unlocked), ranging from the Swordfish Mk. 1 biplane to jets to UFO's. All craft can be customized with parts earned by completing missions.

Includes 5 different game modes: Adventure Mode, in which you fly a series of missions searching for the map pieces needed to find the legendery Tower of Maximus; Target Mode, in which you must navigate through a series of targets; Sky Canvas Mode, in which you paint patterns in the sky; Training Mode, a basic tutorial; and Free Flight Mode, in which you can fly freely around any of the maps you've seen in the adventure mode.

Missions in the adventure mode include such daring stunts as landing on moving trains, landing on an aircraft carrier in the middle of a storm, mid-air refuelling, and flying through caves, canyons, and forests. Weather effects are well-modelled, and you'll be buffetted around by strong winds and pushed down by strong rain and snow.

Trivia

Aliens

The UFO has a crew of small red-eyed aliens inside of it. The easy way to see them is to crash the UFO, they can be seen in the debris. If you want a closer view, follow these steps:

Take off in the UFO and start flying straight up. Cut the engines completely. The UFO will stall and begin gently falling. Try to keep the UFO pointed straight up. If done correctly, as the UFO falls, it will fall down onto the camera and you will get a view inside the craft where the aliens are seated.
