A WWII fighter bomber game

Armageddon Squadron is halfway an arcade kind of Afterburner and a plane simulator, perhaps closer to the former but as fun as the latter. In short, it's as easy as taking over a WWII plane (namely what it looks like a P51, though we should ask Polarbit to be sure) and fly over enemy's facilities and bomb them. Controls are easy yet very adequate (tilt to steer and fly up or down, tap on the rightmost of the screen to open fire and select your weapon with the rotating menu at the upper right: bombs to bomb (and change to a high angle view), machine guns to shoot down enemy fighters, and missiles to make stuff blow away, of course. It's as easy to read as fun to be played.

However, user interface is laggy and cumbersome, and hardware sound buttons are unreasonably disabled. When playing you must expect glitches here and there. Don't blame the developer so fast: it's a full 3D game able to run on average devices, so seeing the sky when you crash into a hill is a deal you can bear.

Aaand it's free, so it becomes a quite recommendable game when we compare it to its far more expensive and technically demanding competitors as long as you are not looking for historical rigor.

This paid version brings very few new features to the game, so you should check the free one first.

Developer's original description available here
Armageddon Squadron is an arcade flight simulator giving players the chance to try their wings in some of the best known aircraft of the World War II era in a variety of mission types and environments.

Mission objectives include bombing and strafing raids against facilities and convoys, protection of ground troops against enemy aircraft and, of course, action-packed dogfights against enemy aces. Prepare to unleash an arsenal of machine guns, bombs, rockets and torpedoes above lush, green countrysides, open seas and battle-pocked urban areas.

    Ffs. All my game saves wiped for this update which had NO NEW CONTENT. Just a bunch of crappy social network button bloatware. Game is good but polarbit are douche bags.

    Does NOT work on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 Plus - - PERIOD. This time, I couldn't get my money back. An update: If you sort these ratings by date, there are a lot of 1 star ratings. I wonder why? Does the developer even care?!

    Tutorial has been ported directly from the iPhone version so doesn't correctly describe the right controls for an Android phone. However, once you crack them they are suprisigly intuitive. Ignore the garish colours and you'll find this is a SUPERB 3D gam
