This Ace Combat Game Has You Controlling It Like A Toy Plane

On consoles, Ace Combat: Assault Horizon is a reboot of the Ace Combat series, and emphasizes “agonizing death by blazing wings.” The iPhone version, however, is another matter.

 

Ace Combat: Assault Horizon/Trigger Finger has you use your iPhone like a toy plane, and touch the screen to fire bullets or missiles. There are two planes you can choose from: the Su-33 Flanker and the Typhoon.

 

The emphasis here is on two-player multiplayer that you carry out with a friend in “make-believe” dogfights, and Trigger Finger will detect your environment through the iPhone camera and use it as the backdrop for your dogfight. The game even makes all the sound effects for you!

 

Believe it or not, yes, this is developed by Project Aces. But it’s also free and meant as a Christmas present to fans, so don’t come down too hard on them.

    Are you kidding?! This could be $5.99 and it would still be fucking epic. Now you have a legit excuse to be a dick around resturants, your partners parents house, church services and weddings. Just imagine everyone being all serious and respectful and all of a sudden you hear two guys going “NEOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW” “TAKAKAKAKAKAKAKA” “PFSHHHHHHHHHHH” “POW POW POW “OH! GOT ME*” while flying their iPhones all over the place

    The game makes special effects for you? Meh your gonna be making your OWN special effects. Well done Project Aces – this is why we don’t tell you to stop milking the Ace Combat series

    Now how about a special HD collection of the first dozen games :D

    *Engrish needed to make dogfights more awesome.
