Product Description
MiniSquadron
Battle by day or night across eight unique locales

Make your Android device take flight in MiniSquadron, a frantic dogfighting shooter with lots of little planes all vying for supremacy of the skies. Use cannons, homing missiles, lasers, and more to blast droves of enemies out of the air while smoothly dodging return fire. Simple yet packed with content, this game has plentiful levels and challenges, awesome power-ups, one-versus-one local Wi-Fi multiplayer, gorgeous graphics, catchy classical music, and online leaderboards and achievements through OpenFeint.

MiniSquadron
Unlock and collect over 50 fighters...
Tight Controls

With MiniSquadron's intuitive, highly addictive old-school shooting gameplay you can perform loop-the-loops, Immelmann turns, and other daring feats of aerial shenanigans with an incredibly fluid control system. Use just two thumbs or fingers: one to control flight and the other to shoot or guide your weapon.

There are over 50 planes to unlock and collect with varying abilities like cruise and dive speed, armor strength, size, turning rate, and weapon type. With so many unique handling styles, you can effectively devise new strategies and play styles for each fighter in your squadron.

MiniSquadron
...including unique aircraft like UFOs
Scenic Views

Take in the vivid, colorful graphics full of stunning detail as you shoot down bogeys. Watch chunks of metal fly off other fighters as your pump them full of artillery fire. Even view the exhaust smoke and flame that trail off your craft as you receive damage.

Each of the fighters has a distinctive color scheme or design. Fighters include different traditional fixed wing aircraft, fighters with animal faces, UFOs, devil planes, and even a giant squid!

Plentiful Unlockables

Collect a plethora of power-ups, including freeze, rapid fire, big laser, invincible, ghost, speed up, and extra lives. Use these in conjunction with the exciting new weapons you get as you unlock each new plane, including double and triple cannons, homing missiles, lasers, and more.

MiniSquadron has great HD Graphics (better than the sample clips). The Controls are an ON-Screen Joystick and s Fire Button that work very well once you get used to them. You get to choose from many different cool Planes after you play awhile and they all have different specifications like Weight, Speed, Weapons, etc. They can STALL like real planes and recover if you pull up in time properly.
Game play is lots of Fun and has Realistic feel to it. Blue arrows tell you when and where OFF-Screen enemies are approaching so you can get ready for them. Messages pop up when you are starting to Stall or when you fly TOO LOW so it helps you to attempt recovery before you crash.

Graphics are high quality HD and the Music and Sound Effects are very good. Sound levels can be adjusted from Options Menu. Controls are easy to learn and work Smoothly on my Tablet.
Lots of Power-Ups (like Stars and Hearts) can be acquired by catching them in flight.
Information Bar on top of screen tells you how many Lives you have left, Enemies left, etc.
It is fast paced but not a FRANTIC level from what I have seen so far. Very simple and ENJOYABLE.

Seems like a well designed game with no obvious flaws or annoyances that I have seen. The only thing I would like to see different is an OPTION TO REVERSE CONTROLS from left to right Joystick so people (like myself) with hand disabilities or weaknesses in dexterity can compensate by swapping.

It is very Enjoyable, Challenging, Entertaining and Fun to engage the other Aircraft in Combat. I like this app and would Recommend it to anyone who likes this type of game. It is a Keeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works perfectly on Kindle Fire first gen! March 24, 2013

Normally, I don't write reviews. I only do so for games that are really good in my opinion that don't have many reviews at the time. So here is my opinion on the game so far.

Graphics: 10/10: Everything looks smooth and colorful, and the sprite animations are nicely done.

Music: 9/10: The music is mostly classical, but it somehow fits the frantic mood of the game.

Customization: 9/10: (Kind of a weird category, I know) From what I've seen, there are about fifty different planes you can choose from once they're all unlocked, and each plane has it's own stats. However, I haven't seen a designer, which isn't a huge deal, but it'd be cool to make a custom plane.

Controls: 10/10: The game controls very well. You get a large on-screen joystick on the bottom left of the screen, and a single fire button on the bottom-right. The joystick responds well to your movements, and you pretty much just have to keep your thumb on the fire button, as I haven't seen any reason to let off it.

Gameplay: 10/10: Amazing gameplay. basically, the aforementioned joystick controls all movement. If you want to fly in any direction, move the joystick in that direction. To fire, obviously, you tap the fire button. to keep firing, hold down on it. In each level, you get a certain number of waves of enemies, and you have to destroy them all before they destroy you. If you DO get destroyed, worry not! You have three lives, and extra ones are available as pickups in the levels! (although, later ones, I'm not sure of.) If you fly too low, you get a "Low altitude" warning. fly too high, and your plane stalls. Hit the ground, you die. get shot too many times by enemy planes, you die.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good With a Caveat March 24, 2013
By Airmid

Playing this game makes me miss using a true joystick - you know those little handles sticking out of a grey box with perhaps a couple colorful buttons on it that most haven't truly used since circa 1985. This is the type of game perfected for that piece of hardware that makes me want to dig mine out even though the Kindle would simply look at that antiquated technology and permanently shut itself down before being attached to something so quaint.

Instead we are given a touchscreen joystick and it's amusing at times to see something that would be considered retro be recreated for current technology. I'm not completely sold on touchscreen joysticks as my fingers tend to not slide well at times and it requires holding the Kindle in a certain way so I can move and shot at the same time in these games. Yet for MiniSquadrom it's the only type of control that I can see working and for what it is, it works well and is responsive.

In this game you fight waves of planes in a small area. Unlike games of this genre of yor where you continued to pass the background as you shot down the enemy, you are kept between two invisible walls that you fly between. While it is obvious that you do not want to hit the ground, if you fly up too high you can also stall, which is a nice touch. Sadly the instructions for the stall about turning into the way you are falling isn't all that helpful when you are falling straight down. Trial and error will make you a pro at recovering from a stall.

There are power-ups in the game that looking like falling stars of different colors that you can catch. If they hit an enemy plane first they're gone. They are a bit finicky and you have to be careful that you aren't going to run into the ground while desperately trying to grab one.

The controls are easy to learn on this game. I play this on my 7" tablet. I'm not really a fan of flight simulator games, but MiniSquadron is fun to play.

Great game, though once you finish all the levels, it gets pretty boring. Controls work well, and this is tons of fun. Sorry to those who missed it on the free app of the day...
