Art in Games has released an iPad version of Air Attack, its top-down air combat shooter. Air Attack HD (iLounge rating: A) provides the same features as its iPhone counterpart with higher-resolution graphics optimized for the iPhone display. AirAttack is an arcade-style top down air combat shooter where the player controls an aircraft flying over enemy territory and scores points by shooting down enemy aircraft, ships, ground vehicles and turrets. The game provides eight missions, 58 different enemy types, numerous upgrades and special weapons and three difficulty modes. Players can choose to control the game using direct touchscreen control, an on-screen joypad or accelerometer-based tilt controls. The game features detailed 3D graphics within lighting and special effects, an orchestral music score and realtime physics. Air Attack HD is available from the App Store for $1. The iPhone and iPod touch version is also available separately from the App Store for $1. A free Lite version is also available.

Fun game.

BUT a new flight sim, 1951: World War One was released a couple of days after this. It blows AirAttack HD out of the sky and is a lot more fun. Unfortunately it’s not optimized for the iPad, but looks good anyway.

It’s well worth 2 bucks!
