Sky Gamblers: Rise Of Glory – Fantastic Graphics and Rich Multiplayer Makes for Air Superiority

I stumbled upon Sky Gamblers: Rise of Glory today  in Google Play and so far, I really like it. With a great mix of easy to learn controls, engaging gameplay, and cool old planes, it’s definitely worth checking out. Basically, you take the controls of old fighter planes and engage in various dogfight missions. What gives the game even more credit is that there’s a fantastic online multiplayer with game types such as Team Deathmatch, Defend the Base, and Capture the Flag.

The game comes with 12 campaign missions, but you can also purchase a “full” version via in-app purchase for $4.99 which unlocks more planes and more story line. The controls and graphics are certainly worth that price if you plan on really getting into this title. If I had one thing to complain about, it’s that I wish there was a game like this but with modern planes. I’ll trade these ancient machines for an F-16 any day.

    Appears to be on sale for $2.99 right now!

    • SolipsisticPsychologist

      Yes, but what I want to know, is if the paid version still has disgusting, game-crippling, in-app purchases in it? Seeing as that disease has infected such a multitude of Android developers, well I would not be shocked if that was the case here.

    The smaller screen lends itself to old fashioned planes: airspeed, altimeter, bubble level, and a machine gun. You wouldn’t want anything remotely like a real F-16 HUD and gauges not to mention the nightmare of a touch screen control layout for the various weapons systems, radar and flight controls. Besides, the slower real world dog fighting physics are almost certainly easier on the CPU and multiplayer networks. Can’t wait to try this.

      How dare you speak for me. You have no idea that I would not want a HUD, oversaturated with instruments.

    Oh my word… I was so into The Red Baron PC game way back when. I LOVE these area flight combat sims. I am for sure going to have to give this a shot.

  • teleclimber

    If you like those old airplanes and nice graphics, and you are not afraid of “serious” highly realistic flight sims, check out “Rise of Flight” (for the PC). Incredible graphics, but be warned: it’s the furthest thing from an arcade game.

    The name “Rise of Glory” lends itself to sequels very nicely. I see a franchise coming (feel free to hold your breath for modern planes… up next: WWII.)

          Cotton pickin’…. lol

  • EvanTheGamer

    Damn…only if this one was part of the Quarter Days a few days ago!

    Maybe when the Google Play Store reaches 50 Billion downloads, it’ll be $.50. Here’s hoping!

    Or I’ll just buy the full version for $4.99. But must try it first!

  • Mikeg1969

    Stumbled across this one myself last week and it is a great play. Not sure if I will buy the full version yet or not but looking good so far.

    • michael arazan

      the problem is if you buy the iap then uninstall the game later, come back and reinstall, you have to buy the iap again, not cool

      • SolipsisticPsychologist

        Exactly. There is a very good reason that they don’t sell the paid version, as a seperate application, and you illustrated this perfectly, fine sir.

  • Mason Lammers

    Downloading… right meow!
