AstroWings GF – Mobile plane shooter brings back the memories

As an arcade gamer, I am always looking for old-school genres being brought to the modern times. Arcade plane shooters is one, and just 2 days ago I was informed of a new mobile game titled AstroWings GF. As you can imagine, I did not have much sleep once weekend started.

A bottom-to-top plane shooter, players are given 6 choices of space planes to choose from, although most requires unlocking via in-game currency or by buying gold using real cash. Armed with both primary and secondary weapons, these can be upgraded for more firepower.

Other than simple controls, there is an item called “Protect Shield”, which will help absorb damage taken. Of course, there is a limit of 9 for each round, which can be purchase at a really low price using in-game currency you earn. Think of it as a safety mechanism to prevent “Game Over” after getting 1 hit.

There are currently 2 chapters of gameplay, with a total of 22 fast-paced stages.While the designs for some stages may look similar, there is usually a twist by adding more enemies and more mini-bosses to put players’ dodge skills to the limits.

AstroWings GF is a simple game overall, with the main skill needed being the ability to manually dodge incoming attacks and when to use the power-up feature located at the bottom right corner. Back to shooting alien scums!
