Take command over RAF during the WW2 history turning point, the Battle of Britain!

The goal of the game is to defend Great Britain against German bombing raids.

The game has two distinct gameplay experiences where:

* The player manages war production and squadron placement

* The player organizes patrol routes and tactics

Once combat is initiated the player can lead their squadrons to attack waves of German bombers utilizing simple touch or mouse commands.

The game follows the historical timeline very closely, but at the same time - the game mechanics are easy to learn (yet hard to master) and it provides great entertainment for both seasoned and novice players.

* There are 8 aircraft types in the game - including of course the famous Supermarine Spitfire!

* Every pilot is earning his own experience - witness your rookies become aces!

* Manage the British war machine - decide what should be built and where

* Fight epic air battles!

* Lead English, Polish, Czechs, Canadian and New Zealands squadrons to fight for freedom!

The game implements ‘German Command AI” which results in each campaign playing out differently. No two games will ever be the same.

  1. Beautiful planes and detailed statistics
    by Viacheslav Vydrenkov, Switzerland - Nov 27th 2013

    The planes are very beautiful. The statistics is detailed and nicely done. That would be great to have these features to be applied to a game with larger scale. More planes (same beautiful, please), more battles, upgrading, different missions. Otherwise: my children love it!

  2. MAN, it could be so great
    by daisyborat, USA - Nov 19th 2013

    It has a great theme, has the clasic strategy and amazing TOWER defense going for it. However, its just the same same same, nothing to add on, no mods, no improvments, just wave after wave of wave of planes, build planes, trian pilots fight, over and over and over. I understand it has to be difficult or whats the point, but by the time you survive to day 6-7 you are so bored with doing the same thing over and over. No improvements for planes, no improvments for bases, to easy to loose pilots, garuntee you will loos almost entire squad even if they are experienced and you auto resolve, its just not fun after that much of the same. It could have been so much more, even for ten bucks its just to repetative. not to mention silly, if i send 8 fighters against 4 bombers, how is it even possible to loose 4 fighters, its just silly, bombers with no support are sitting ducks even for crappy pilots.

    Also, tons of bugs, glitches, freezes, hangs, etc. Im done with it after just 3 days and i doubt i will go back unless they have the bugs fixed and other repetative break ups installed. Dont waste your money, for the entertainment its worth 3-5 dollars.

    Also, had download, update, and install errors constantly, dont pay more than 5$

  3. Not worth the time
    by Elias Chapelle, USA - Sep 16th 2013

    I wish I could figure out how to even get this app to work. There is no documentation, the flight tutorial does not work, and I cannot get past the requirement to build 4 aircraft at the factory. In addition, several spelling and gramatical errors illustrate the authors lack of familiarity with english (although I cannot understand how you can misspell the word 'and'). And last of all, 'The Few' seems to require Abode Air, an app not known for its trustworthiness, and always prompts for a nonexistent update. This game goes in the trash. I would reconsider it if someone would let me know how to get it to work.
