iPhone Aera






The iPhone Game Aera is a mix of side-scroller and flight simulator. Aera is played in a real 3D environment. In Aera, the player gets to control the throttle and pitch of your plane. In addition, there are some "Special" moves. You may think this is just another simple game, but it is not that easy. It has the ability to produce advanced physics simulation that one can perform very stunts. It will take good precise practices and effort to master this 3D simulator. Having to practice complex moves, you can use different tactics to complete each game higher mission. As you play through Aera, you get to upgrade to faster and more powerful airplanes, get better weapons, and face more challenging opponents.

This is my Aera Review. Aera is a great 3D flight simulator that will exhilarate you with flight. Using the 20th century period of early flight, this is a game that thrills with brightly liveried biplanes, red barons as much as flight tactics.

Aera give you a feeling of pure flight. It lets you feel like a raw flying like a car driver driving a rally car. You will face challenges by those first days of flight.

For starters, the Aera can play in 2D. While the graphics are gorgeously rendered in 3D and the camera swoops around your craft at certain discrete points, you're essentially fixed to a single plane (the other kind).

One can set the throttle with the toggle on the left side of the screen, the plane accelerating from left to right. the Aera controls are quite sensitive, a slight movement can sent your plane to climb up high. A flick of your iPhone will flip your plane 180 degrees, like a vertical u-turn.

In addition to the linear flying of Aera, there is a boost bar that acts like a NOS. Touching this will blast the plane forward like a rocket. This is an important Aera move for loops, as your little machine chugs and splutters realistically during extended climbs and often needs an extra kick to keep it moving.

Three levels: Solo, Dog Fight and Race. Solo is flying through hoops popping balloons along the way. Dog Fight allows you to take on a number of opponents in aerial combat. Finally the Race let you dash between two points and avoiding mines.

Dog Fight varies the pace beautifully and shows off the flexibility of the flight mechanics. You have access to a machine gun and limited missiles, but the real joy is ducking and diving in order to outfox your opponents and bring them into your sights.

The Campaign mode is so linear, particularly as the general difficulty level is pitched high. There are some commendable features that ease the frustration. There is a limited number of lives in Solo mode but the game rewinds your fateful final few seconds, allowing you to correct your mistake.

To combat disorientation with all the swooping and looping going on, the game features an arrow system that points the way to the next goal. There's also the option to fix the camera to your plane by touching the bottom left of the screen, which ensures that that one is always the right-side up.
