Ever thought paper airplanes would be more fun if they actually stayed aloft? And engaged in dogfights? And fired pencil missiles, suction cup darts and spit wads? So did Pangea Software, which led to the release of their iOS networked multiplayer air combat game: Air Wings.
Pangea, of course, is the company that brought us Mac and iOS games such as Enigmo, Cro-Mag Rally, and Nanosaur 2. This latest is:
… a 3D flying game in which you pilot various paper airplanes and fire an assortment of unusual weapons while doing battle with other opponents. There are rubber band bullets that ricochet around the scene, heat seeking pencil missiles, suction cup darts that stick to your opponents, spit wads, etc. The entire game was designed as an online networked multiplayer battle game, and it uses Game Center to match up to 4 players in each battle. You fly around various indoor and outdoor environments, and the different paper airplanes each have their own flight and battle characteristics. There’s even a rubber band powered balsa airplane that you can fly!
Air Wings is a free universal app for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, and users can buy upgrades within the game to get new paper airplanes to fly and to unlock additional levels. And as one would surmise from the title, Air Wings support AirPlay, so you can play the game on your HDTV in high-definition.
