Coming Soon: World War I Flying Game Sky Gamblers: Rise of Glory

Posted by Jennifer Allen on September 8th, 2011

Is it just me or is World War I a rather forgotten war in terms of games based upon it? While we're overwhelmed by so many games focused on World War II, the Great War of 1914-1918 gets left behind. Probably nobody wants to experience trench warfare on the scale that was seen back then though so I guess that's why the main safe ground for World War I games is that of aerial combat, which is where Namco Bandai's latest title plays a prominant role.

Sky Gamblers: Rise of Glory is set for release later this month for both iPhone and iPad. It's an attractive looking air combat simulator that looks like an entertaining mix of authenticity and arcade-like combat maneuvers.

To add the authentic touch, players will be able to choose from 10 World War I planes while participating in 12 single player missions that promise realism and plenty of detail in keeping with the reality behind the conflict. Namco Bandai also promise that missions will be varied with the likes of attack runs and reconnaissance playing equally important roles while continually testing the player's skill at manouevring and attacking the enemy. Besides the single player campaign, there should be plenty to do with 100 Dogfight missions as well as a custom game feature. 18 different landscapes will keep appearances looking fresh and exciting.

Comprehensive multiplayer functionality will also be provided with online 8 player multiplayer and numerous game modes. Free for all combat is on offer as well as Team Deathmatch, Defend the Base and Capture the Flag all with a mixture of competitive and co-operative play available.

Sky Gamblers: Rise of Glory is set for release later this September priced at $4.99 for an Universal app. For now, take a look at the impressive screenshots below. We'll be sure to keep up to date on all the latest developments for the game.
