NOTE: shells do damage whenever they explode near a plane, aim for the center of the planes to do the most damage.

September 1940 - the sustained bombing of Great Britain by the Luftwaffe has begun. As one of few highly skilled anti-aircraft gunners it is up to you to defend the coast line against the coming assault.
Upgrade your turret at the end of each day before catching up with the progress of the war in the newspaper. Plenty of medals to collect and enemies to destroy.
Earcade.org are paying my bills this month, so a big thanks to them as well as everyone who helped with the testing :)
As always, feedback is much appreciated.

UPDATE 1: Slightly increased the hit area of the bombers and larger planes
UPDATE 2: Cheers for the frontpage Tom et al, you guys quite obviously rock :)
UPDATE 3: Reduced the hitpoints of the large green bombers and the observation balloons
UPDATE 4: Lone Defender in the defense collection? Well, frankly that's awesome :D
UPDATE 5: There seem to be a lot of people who have trouble reading, so I've defaulted the graphics settings to LOW. If you want to play it with some extra pretty graphics effects, go into OPTIONS, and select HIGH on graphics quality

NOTE: If you find the game is running slow, try setting the graphics to LOW and turning particle effects off under 'Options' - this should speed things up a fair bit.

Fun but tough...

This game is tough since the plane's hit box is so small.
The game also lacks music.

this is so easy


Way too easy

I love this game, but it gets repitive to the point where I would go do something else. To be honest, I just want to read those newspapers in between rounds. You need to make a second one where theres 50 of those really small planes on screen and you can place a second turret. FYI: every plane has a weak spot, Shoot planes in different areas and see note where the most damage is done


why wont it let me get lvl 6 upgrades i have everything at lvl 5
