    Skies of Glory is now available on the Marketplace for only $4.99. It also appears to have cross platform multiplayer so we can all take to the air against iPhone users!

    That looks pretty awesome, I'd check it out if there was a demo. Controls can make or break this sort of game.

    It's for sale so it won't show up where that isn't allow. Also it's only just up (< 50 downloads) so perhaps it will take a day or two.

    Alright.

    Glad you like the game.

    We got a forum over at TOUCH ARCADE for SoG. You'll find all the TOP 10 and other gods on here as well as just a bunch of us having a laugh.

    We're also on Facebook, although SGN won't text that so it's up to us to spread the word.

    See you in the skies...

    I'm also really liking the game, but I'm sticking with single player until I don't fly like a drunk woman ;)

    Tip for you.

    Whack the sensitivity up full pelt. Might seem crazy at first but you get used to it and to bail out, shake your phone.

    Also using rockets in multiplayer is frowned upon and many will target you over and over for doing so.

    Rockets as successful as they feel in a instant kill against most planes are nowhere as effective as using 2 MG's. Your kill rating will go up faster with MG's.

    Also most rocketeers tend to fly in straight lines making them easy pickings. Don't stay still too long. There are some crazy pilots out there. Even when you enter a massacre, watch and learn from the aces.

    Most are good sportsmen (and women), so try not to throw the OWNED gesture. Also frowned upon. A GG/Adios is always good etiquette when leaving a room.

    And the big tip for all those who like to play DTB (Destroy The Base).
    Killing planes will still rank on your overall kills.
    Crashing into the enemy base will DECREASE your overall score. So all those Iphone users crashing into the base. They're score is going nowhere FAST!
    best just to shoot them. DTB is mainly noobs and vets looking for easy target practice.

    Everytime you crash, you lose a point.

    For more info be sure to check out Shern Chong's findings on FB.

    Cheers.

    Have a good one.

    And for any spanish speakers Lemariont has set up a Spanish language forum by HERE.
    You can also find him at Touch Arcade & FB.

    This game seems really fun, unfortunatly, the resolution is native to a larger phone, so I can barely play it on HTC Aria. Any one know how to lower the resolution of the game?

    Out of curiosity, how far down does that ranking go? Someone from Touch Arcade swapped phones and is now at 21,000 something. Considering he was Top 30 recently.
    When you swap iphones etc, your ranking will remain but it is unusable. Take the no.1, a Japanese guy whose blazing up the ranks with a Iphone4.

    Me? I'm currently 116, gonna get higher with you 'droid noobs filling the skies for a while.

    I been on since end of April.

    Get your asses over to the Facebook SoG page. Lots of tips and general chatter.

    oh and contrary to the specs... best planes are the Yak-I and Zero-III.

    I think we got new ones arriving soon as we have been moaning at them for ages cos the Z-III is the only 3rd gen fighter.
    There's always a sale before new planes.

    Just bought the game and not sure if its worth keeping. The plane is so hard to control. It seems like i cant play the game sitting down. I have to tilt my phone so far that i can barely see the screen sometimes. Does everyone start out being so bad at flying these planes? It seems like i spend as much time flying upside down as right side up.

    This game has a huge following and great graphics but the learning curve seems to be really big.
