Choose your Crew!
Train and personalise your own Bomber Crew. Procedurally-generated names, skills and back stories means a unique experience for everyone, but be careful, as death is permanent.

Immersive flight simulation!
Carefully manage everything from fuel, ammo, hydraulics and more in your very own physics-based Bomber. Make it yours with a wide array of nose art and liveries, or design your own with the simple to use in-game tool.

Fast paced strategy!
Each mission is a high-risk expedition where danger comes from every angle. Enemy fighters, flak guns, poor weather, low oxygen and an array of other perilous dangers await when the wheels are up.

Be prepared!
Preparation is key for a successful mission. Tag enemy fighters before they reach you, make sure your destination is marked but most importantly, make sure you have the right team for the job. On a WW2 bomber, every role is essential for victory!

  1. Good Game
    by Damien L.1, United Kingdom - Aug 23rd 2018

    A good game with a steep learning curve, be prepared to lose many times, but the game is good fun!

  2. Frustrating interface
    by Scott Henderson, USA - Jul 14th 2018

    Can't say that I enjoyed this game. How to perform the tasks required are kind of a hit and miss. Documentation could be much better. The training missions could be a whole lot better. Navigation needs to be performed several times during a mission, even if you haven't initially reached the target. The plane breaks down for seemingly no reason. Piloting the plane is limited to raising and lowering the landing gear. Game play is more focused on managing the people in the plane and their individual tasks than on what the mission actually is. Graphics tend to blow out when objects move too close to the front of the screen (Z axis is less).

  3. FTL but in WWII
    by James H.7570, United Kingdom - Mar 28th 2018

    In the same gist as FTL, you start off with a basic bomber that's very vulnerable to breakdown and damage so you stick to low-risk missions to build yourself up. Eventually you get strong enough to try the main campaign missions... and subsequently get your arse handed to you on a silver platter.

    This is an extremely unforgiving game, but by no means is it not fun. There's never a dull moment, even the starts of missions feel like the calm before the storm. The ability for example to make calls like whether to go for optional objectives, or just the main objective, or even abort the mission just to try and limp home is amazing and really immersive, as it only adds to the rest of the player choice during everything.

    This game is more than it looks like. Fun, difficult and cheap.

  5. Good, simplified/cartoonish, fun
    by Redleg, USA - Feb 23rd 2018

    Good, but frustrating. Because the game requires that the player do several critical tasks at the same time, some get undone (priority is always fending off fighters). Two main frustrations: not being able to restart a game, and the near impossibility of tagging fighters if you don't do that while they are distant and closely grouped. I have several times accidentally sent the pilot to some repair task while intending to select the adjacent engineer in the crowded cockpit. Do not play this game with a kitty co-pilot. One or two simple tweaks in a patch would make this game really fun (I suspect that graphically confusing fighter tagging cannot be fixed). Still, this game gives way more hours of more pleasure for less money than two Hollywood films. Skip one lunch and buy the game.

  6. Engaging and fun, best without save-scumming!
    by bills6693, United Kingdom - Feb 17th 2018

    This game reminds me of games like FTL and XCOM, and is very fun. I tried it save-scumming but actually started again without doing that and found it more fun when accepting my losses.

    The FTL element in my mind is the controlling of crew around the aircraft, moving them between stations and to go repair parts, put out fires etc. With crewmen going out on the wings, bringing up ammo to reload guns, and saving injured crewmates, it keeps you concentrating and on your toes.

    The XCOM element comes from the game structure of going out on missions, then returning to base to upgrade your gear and aircraft between. With rewards from every mission, this generates an engaging and fun loop.

    Additionally, you will take some losses. Sometimes crew will be downed and you can't save them all, or occasionally you will find yourself in so much trouble your plane crashes or does an emergency landing. This is generally from over-reaching and getting yourself into a situation you shouldn't have, including from selecting a mission you have been warned may be very dangerous (but may have higher rewards). This loss and rebuilding/recovering is another great element of the game and I would recommend against avoiding it like I did at first! The game is well balanced around you taking losses and recovering from this so fear not!

  7. A "Runway" success
    by Loic R., France - Nov 25th 2017

    The appearance may be cartoony, but this game has quite a bit of depth to it; You are put in charge of maintaining and flying a Lancaster bomber and its crew, you can customize both the bomber and the crew, and then take them out on some pretty varied missions including some historic ones to progress the campaign.

    The campaign is long, i've yet to finish it after playing for 5 hours, the mechanics are complex but manageable, and the developpers, as astonished by the success of this game as we are, are planning several DLC and updates.
