Air combat games, no matter if they are set on WWI, WWII, the 54th Lactean War or whatsoever, tend to be based on those old arcade games in which you move your plane or ship freely without being worried by obstinate laws of physics or minor details such as where are you hit or where have you hit a foe. Flight simulators have so far been the exclusive preserve of desktop computers.
So far. Sky Gamblers gathers all the good stuff from good sims and brings it to our beloved Android, smartly adapted to our devices own virtues and needs. However, before you proceed ahead, keep in mind that -in case it isn't already crystal clear- this is no arcade or casual game. It will ask you to make the most of both you and your Android. Once you have learnt the basics, you can play a raid in ten or fifteen minutes, but until then it isn't a game to be played far from the comfort of your couch.
Although I could spent hours talking about this game, I'll try to stay loyal to AndroidZoom style and summarize it in a few points: this game has anything you would expect of it, even much more. There's a tutorial worth to thoroughly played, a campaign mode with several kinds of different missions to fulfill, and, as if this wasn't enough, an online multiplayer mode in which up to eight players can play at once in real time as long as you stick yourself near to a wifi hotspot.
You will soon realize that this game is far beyond locking enemies and riddle them with lead. Dogfights, tail chases and acrobaaaatic movements will be the key to avoid dangerous emergency landings. Graphics are superb, and maps are gorgeous, from the green meadows of French countryside to the snowy Alps heights. Planes are taken from real models used then. And, surprisingly, it's a game that weighs only 40Mb or so and only asks for Android 2.2 or better.
Awesome. The only little thing you won't like is that the free version only allow a few first stages. Then, you will have to upgrade to the complete version through an in-app purchase, but that's something you won't regret, as we are talking about one of the best games for Android so far.
