Weekly Time Waster - ‘1945 Air Force’

(0 votes)

I always enjoy finding horizontal scrolling games that are similar to classic arcade games such as “Galaga.” I’m also a pretty big fan of World War II gaming. Wouldn’t you know it, I found a great little horizontal scrolling game called “1945 Air Force” that hit the sweet spot of that particular Venn diagram.

In “1945 Air Force” you control a warplane in an alternate WWII setting that is taking on enemy forces in over 350 levels. You are either flying solo or alongside other smaller planes that are part of your squad – they shoot when you shoot. In each level, you take on other planes by moving your plane left or right and firing at them, all while dodging their ordinance. As you level up, you can upgrade your plane with different ammunition and abilities to cause more destruction and mayhem.

As you tear through the levels, you eventually reach high health and challenging bosses, that range anywhere from gigantic flying fortresses to massive tanks and battleships. Each boss has small weak points on them that you can attack to eventually destroy them while helping ensure your survival. The game is not too easy, but it’s not too challenging either; it hits a great middle ground, especially if you are familiar with this style of arcade game.

With hundreds of levels, over 30 historical planes from countries from WWII and some fantastic graphics, special effects and sounds, “1945 Air Force” is a great time waster to add to your app list.

“1945 Air Force” is free to download on the Android and IOS stores.
