Not sure about this one yet, but I think it’s looking good, especially given the current price of 59p.

However, then I tried a game mode where you have to collect floating balls without hitting mines and I just couldn’t get to some of them. It was quite strange. I think I probably just need more practice, to work out what the plane can do.
Then I tried a combat mission, where you have to destroy enemy planes. That was really rather fun, but, again, I found myself unable to actually get to some of the power ups the enemy planes dropped.
