A couple of weeks ago, I ran into a new game by Art in Games called AirAttack HD Lite, which was a free preview version of a top-down plane shooter, but with only 2 levels. The game was polished so well that I finished the 2 levels in a heartbeat and was left longing for more. In fact, if you remember, I called AirAttack HD "not your dream game, but the one after that."

Today, the full version is available. 8 levels, 58 enemy types, 2 planes (I was hoping for more, but since they have numerous weapon upgrades, we don't really need more than 2), 8 "huge end level bosses," 4 control methods (touch, relative, tilt, and joypad), and [optional - thank god] support for Tegra processors (THD) all await you behind the download links below.

And to answer your question, yes, it's this fun.

What are you waiting for? Check out the screenshots and videos below, and hurry to the download links on the bottom.

Note: To clear up the confusion between the 3 versions in the Market:

  • AirAttack HD Part 1 is what used to be AirAttack HD Lite, and now contains 3 levels.
  • AirAttack HD Part 2 costs $1.93 and contains 5 more levels. According to the developer, the split is due to download size limitations on Samsung devices, which forced them to split the full game into 2 parts. The direct quote is: "Samsung devices have 30 MB download limit." Samsung owners, looks like you have to buy this version instead of the full one.
  • AirAttack HD costs $2.90 and contains all 8 levels for all other devices.

    I think I just peed a little.

    Is that for all Samsung phones? Air Attack HD is 41MB but I have stuff installed on my Galaxy S that is much bigger (Dungeon Defender is over 500MB)

    could someone explain this a little better?

    • Kane

      I think it's the download size itself - I bet Dungeon Defender downloads the game content after you install it.

    I played the light version the other day on my atrix and was impressed. I will be picking up the paid version today!

    Dude, seriously - WTF is up with Samsung devices? Every single time there's an asterisk or some special condition, it's because of Samsung.

  • Karthik

    Why is the Samsung version cheaper? Part1 and 2 put together seem to be the same as the non-Samsung full version. Whatever. Downloading on my Galaxy S as I type :)

      Yeah, I asked them about the math - they said the full version will be getting more levels while the Part 1/2 won't. Not sure if it means Part 3 will be out - probably.

    Love the graphics, but top down flying feels wrong to me. I can just about live with gun bros. I'll buy it just to support Android gaming.

  • jeremee

    Yeah i will purchase.
    It's sad though that on android a game like this is a "dream game" but on iphone its just meh.

    Anyway i raped Sky Force reloaded a little too much so time to pop this virgin Air Attack!

    Has it got the same _18 install problem as the free version?
