Very nice graphics! Plane controls seemed really tight, but weapons were tough to use. That did make the kills very satisfying though.

With some more work on the controls it would be great!

The theme is fun, and the 3d modeling is very nice. However, the UI is not really good, and the piloting feels a bit weird (I also get stuck a lot against object).

I would also advice to add an option to play in ZQSD (wsad but for azerty keyboard), since it is quite annoying to change the layout for non english keyboard ;)

It's a nice first ludum dare game, and I hope you'll continue making game :)

I like the graphics and the feel of the control. It's difficult to aim, though.

Sweet! Liked the graphics, controls are hard but that's normal for a plane, as mentioned - successfully shooting a tank is quite difficult. A very good entry.

Also, next time it might be worthwhile to add sounds, trust me even whistles for dropping bombs and mouth-made plane engine sounds would make this that much more fun and add to the overall colorful atmosphere!

It was hard to aim, but other than that, great game!

Paper airplanes are awesome. Would have been nice with some clear feedback when you hit something. For the best tactic was to stand still on the table and shoot everything.

Didn't notice the tanks at first. Quite a surprise when a hail of bullets rained, well, up on me all of a sudden. I guess that wasn't intentional but it entertained me. Fun to fly, though a bit hard when I went into corners and such. I expected that I would have to restart or something when flying into walls and tables and floors. Hard to aim with the weapons.

The planes physics are a bit weird, and it's really hard to aim, but otherwise pretty cool.

Took me awhile to get used to the controls! I ended up just flying onto the tables and doing a sweep along them to take out the tanks, since you don't lose health for collisions.

The graphics are quite nice, and once I warmed up to the controls, I had fun. I would suggest some type of cross-hair though!

Very nice game, for this moment its one of the best game of LD37

Dec 12, 2016 @ 8:27pm

Great game. It's a really cool take on the theme. Only real complaints are that it could really use some sound and a cross-hair. But great game.

This was fun as. The graphics are really nice especially the scale of things made it feel cool when you come in for a bombing run.
I would have liked if it was faster and if you could do a barrel roll

I enjoyed this, the small feel is great. I feel like if the controls were tightened up and crashing was a thing this would be even better

very lovely graphics. had a little trouble with the controls and aiming but i still enjoyed it a lot.

Nice concept and implementation, it's pretty funny.

The graphics are simple but enough and effective.

The game mechanics are fine but it can be a bit hard to aim.

To make it more dynamic, you could speed up the plane and add some tanks here and there to feel more pressure.

Good job overall :)

Controls aren't easy but pretty fun game. Great entry for compo!

Very good idea. It is hard to spot the tank at first. Aiming is hard. I would change E and F for the keys, which are closer to space, so they could be operated by right hand.
