The refreshingly simple, but undeniably cool dogfighting game Luftrausers might have flown under your radar. Trick pilots are good at that. Take it from me – this is one game you won’t want to miss.
Developer Vlambeer announced the Luftrausers’ March 18 release date via twitter. The vine and the video below do a good job of showing the chaos and destruction players will become intimately familiar with when playing the game.
While it might look a little dizzying at first, Luftrausers’ merit comes by way of its simplicity. That is, if it is anything like the original game Luftrauser (no ‘s’). In the original game, players only have four controls: left, right, accelerate, and fire. Being pursued by fighters? Swing right, kick off the acceleration, spin around, fire, and reaccelerate moments before hitting the water.
This sounds hard to do, but in reality it’s very simple. Luftrauser excels at making you feel like an ace fighter pilot.
Devolver Digital is publishing the game on Linux, Mac, PC, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita. If you’re not quite sold on Luftrausers, check out the original game for free on Luftrausers’ official site.
