About This Place

First started in late 2007, Kasey's Mobile Game Review (then just a regular feature of Kasey's Korner) started as a simul-post between here and IGN. Later I realized there's no reason to post it twice, when I can use the traffic on my own site. so, here we are, in 2010, and the mobile game industry has grown a bit. What do you think?

Mobile Game Review of "F-16 Air Fighter"

In-Fusio's own pages are filled with Flash stuff so I can't link to the page directly. I had to link to press release instead.

In-Fusio's F-16 Air Fighter is basically... Galaga with F-16 skin. It is both ridiculously unrealistic (chain gun, bombs, missiles, guided missiles, and a "wave weapon", each with 4 levels of "upgrades") and while still attempts SOME semblances of reality as it touts its license from Lockheed Martin, makers of F-16.

It's basically a 2D shoot-em-up in the most basic sense... Your chaingun fires automatically, and you have to use your other weapons to kill various other targets, both on the ground, and in the air. The enemies are at least portrayed somewhat convincingly... Lots of MiGs, choppers, tanks, cities, and more. The problem is it couldn't decide whether it's a sim or a shoot-em-up, and ended up as neither.

Music is boring, graphics are okay, except you sometimes launch from aircraft carriers (!). Though usually you try to air-refuel by flying behind a tanker and try to snag the fuel basket. Basically the mission gets tougher by adding more enemies, but usually I'm too bored about this game to notice.

Rating: 5.5 out of 10
