Aces of the Luftwaffe – Retro Arcade Air Shooter, iOS Game

Aces of the Luftwaffe is a classic WWII arcade shooter game for the iPhone and iPad. The objective in this iOS game is to fight your way through the German Air Force as a fighter or bomber plane. You will encounter massive waves of enemy attacks, special enemy planes, boss battles, and more. I have always loved WWII shooter games, especially those like Aces of the Luftwaffe. Your mission is to fly as a fighter or bomber in the Royal Air Force taking on the “Luftwaffe.” That was the name of the German Air Force. There is a cheesy storyline in this cartoonish-like graphic game, which also has a somewhat pixilated feel. The enemies typically attack you in groups of 3, and in never-ending waves. There are tougher planes to deal with as you manage the wave attacks and eventually there are boss battles.

Aces of the Luftwaffe is a very good retro arcade air shooter, but there is not enough gameplay. There are currently only 3 game areas, but 6 if you consider that you can play all with the 2 different planes. Regardless, each area has only 4 to 5 levels and unfortunately there are no other difficulty settings. So what you see is what you get.

For $0.99 the Aces of the Luftwaffe is an okay purchase. However, if you’re looking for a lot of gameplay you may want to keep looking.
