Excellent game!

It has some major bugs...
-Your plane sometimes flips horizontaly out of a sudden.
-Once, After I died, I still had control over my plane, but I couldn't see it. (the screen still scrolled)
-And we shouldn't hit the aircraft carrier's tower if we shut the engine while being to high! Vertical movement should be a proportion of the remainning runway.

So I remove half a star!
Still very addictive though.

when you say the plane flips do you mean it becomes up sidedown or turns? When you press Ctrl on your keyboard it will flip the plane, could you have accidentally hit ctrl, that bug has never been reported before.

When you died and the plane blew up, did the game eventually go to the continue screen, Could you explain what kind of control you still had.

When you land, and you are in the runway zone, you glide to the ground, part of the game is to judge if you are to close to the end of the runway to end the decent, I am thinking of placing a Marker or air sock at the outer most region of the runway to help players know where it starts. if I explain that better would that help.

No I've experienced the random flipping as well. It didn't bother me much though. I just assumed it was meant to be that way.

Can you guys tell me what level you where on, this has not happened in over six months of design, and testing, so I would love to figure out how it is happening

tutorial level for me.

Probably when you are just finished with one of the Commander explanation cut screens, this is because it passes on the key stroke to exit the menu, I fixed it on landing have to do the rest, Thanks for point it out!

Does this have only 32-direction shooting? You should definitely upgrade it to being able to shoot in 360.

check out the thread in the community section on the CT board, two updates already

I fell through the ground a few times on the tutorial levels (Combat, i beleive), then nothing happened (i assume the plane just fell forever?) and i was stuck on that screen.

Also "Press button4 to drop bombs" was not amazingly helpful when i was using the keyboard. (It's Z, by the way)

Fantastic game! Reminds me of triplane turmoil.

It was fun for a few minutes, but I couldn't really get into it. Also, I think you might need someone to check the text for you.

Falling because of a blown engine was fun, though.
