Storm Raiders has been updated with a new version which specially fits the new hardware possibilities of the latest Apple flagship, the iPhone 5s. If you play this game you’ll notice some impressive graphical effects, which include atmospheric dispersing during combat, roaring heat waves from your fighter’s engine, motion blur, surreal lightning details and much more.
Game Play Features
The Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders comes offers Single and Multiplayer modes. If you decide to play alone you can first practice your skills by opting for a “Free flight” and accustom yourself with flying a combat plane on your iPhone. You can next try the “Free for All” and “Last Man Standing” game play options which allow you to fight against multiple opponents, controlled by the software.
Once you improve your dogfighting skills you can start a “Campaign”, sign-up for real World War II “Dogfight Missions” or go on “Survival” mode. Other Single Player game play modes include “Capture the flag” assignments, “Defend the base” type missions or a dramatic “Team Deathmatch”.
The Online Multiplayer option completes the complexity of this game. You can play both dogfight missions as wells as team gameplay with other human players from all around the world. I have to underline that you can find a massive amount of online players ready to engage with you in aerial combats!
In my opinion there is a positive price/quality ratio. The Sky Gamblers: Storm Raders game is available on the App Store for the price of $4.99. Do mind that there are a lot of In-App purchases that could double or even triple the initial asking price. A few examples are: Weapon Customize ($1.99), Starter Mega Pack ($1.99), P-80 Shooting Star($1.99), Meteor F8 ($0.99), Acrobatic Pack ($0.99) and so on.
