[prMac.com] Christchurch, New Zealand - Announcing that PAL Games, the developer of FokkerSkurge, has just released the latest update for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. FokkerSkurge 1.2 is a 3D flight simulator game that lets users take part in realistic recreations of World War 1 dogfights, complete with pulse pounding aerial maneuvers and true to life sound effects. FokkerSkurge 1.2 is an easy to learn, easy to use app. Players simply tilt the device to steer the plane and tap the screen to fire the machine guns. After one or two practice runs, users are ready to take to the skies.
FokkerSkurge 1.2 features include:
* Full 3D
* Intuitive tilt and touch controls
* Realistic graphics with immersive 3D sound effects
* Realistic machine gun effects
* Six different missions
* Speed and altitude gauges
* Optional stall warning
* Choice of two allied fighters
* Six enemy aircraft types
* Intuitive flight controls
Players can take to the skies over the Western Front in an accurately rendered 3D version of American Ace Eddie Rickenbacker's SPAD XIII, or Canadian Hero Billy Barker's Sopwith Camel F1. With six different missions, players must shoot down historic, accurately modeled enemy aircraft, such as:
* The Red Baron's iconic red Fokker triplane
* Fokker D7
* Albatros & Fokker triplanes
* Zeppelin airships
* Gotha bombers
* Drachen observation balloon
The controls for FokkerSkurge 1.2 are simple and intuitive. Players simply tilt their device left or right to steer the plane, and up or down to climb or dive. Improvements for this update make the game even easier to control. Users can adjust the neutral tilt for comfortable game play whether standing, sitting, or even lying down. A simple speedometer and altimeter have also been added to help players better judge their speed and distance from the ground. Players can quickly change their point of view. By dragging a finger across the screen, users can see what's above, below, or even behind their craft. To return to the default point of view (behind the player's aircraft), the player simply taps the screen twice.
Each mission begins with a briefing to describe the objective, which usually involves shooting down enemy aircraft or destroying ground targets. The game is no walk in the park, as the enemy will actively hunt and engage players in combat. Gameplay involves dogfights, strafing runs, and in one level, the user must even fly through an enemy hangar to destroy targets. Strategy is important, because at times, users will be fighting with as many as eight enemy aircraft.
* iPhone, iPod touch and iPad
* Requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later
