Rated 5 / 5 stars

really nice game

I really like the game and the atmosphere.
Also I personally really like the simplicity of the game that there are only few types of units that need to be used wisely. I think different types of ground units would make the game too complicated.

Here are some small things that might be improved:
- during some bombing pictures I saw some small graphic bugs on the left/down corners of the screen.
- some newspaper information disappears too fast
- Have you thought of including AA-guns that have a certain chance to shoot down an airplane and are also placed in a city? Maybe they might also need a recruit to be used. Somehow I missed them a bit for this battle.
- When reading the game title I somehow expected some simple action game where you control a spitfire. Here we have a strategy simulation where the spitfire is not the only aspect. No big deal though.

- The whole game makes a really nice historical impression except of one thing:
The ending. Why did you write that "germany surrenders"? There was no surrender, the plans for an invasion of britain were just cancelled and the bombings decreased. I understand the point of rewarding the player for winning but I would chose some different text.

Good job and good luck with your future games! :-)

Rated 4 / 5 stars


Is an awesome strategy game, but the battles are WAY too random, how is it that I can regularly loose almost all my planes when I outnumber them 3 to 1? And then followed immediately by no recruits? Is good, but has major balance issues.

Since the tips and hints is not working here is the only way you will win: When you start, put ALL your recruits into recruiters until it is maxed out.

Something that i really didn't like was the fact that there was only 1 unit type for defending. I would have loved to see ground units like tanks and soldiers AT LEAST and then maybe sea units but mainly ground units. Also, i found the game to be extremely easy I'm on day 42 with 5% total damage to my cities. never once lost a city. boosting recruits first, then pilots and spies. Maybe i was just really good, but i thought it was too easy. also, if you add ground units you could up the amount of kills you need to win. i quit for now at 256 enemies killed because repetitiveness.. :(
