Ridiculous Fishing had a good 2013. The breakout game from the Dutch developers at Vlambeer was Apple’s best iOS game of the year. It also won a coveted Apple Design Award. We called it “stellar” and “addictive” in our roundup of the best iOS games of the year, and it spawned countless clones in the App Store.
Now the same two-man studio is at it again with a new game that’s coming out on March 18th, Luftrausers.
The concept looks like a mix between a typical dogfighting simulator and the quirky, retro design Vlambeer pulled off so well in Ridiculous Fishing.
The skies will be set aflame and the seas will overflow with wreckage in Vlambeer’s stylish arcade shooter LUFTRAUSERS! Select from over 125 combinations of weapons, bodies, and propulsion systems and take to the skies to battle enemy fighter planes, battleships, submarines, and rival aces for glory, honor, and high scores.
Bravely volunteer for one of over 100 daring missions to unlock new Rauser combinations and vibrant color variations and become the most legendary Rauser pilot of all time!
This one isn’t an iOS game, unfortunately. Supported platforms include PlayStation 3 /Vita, Windows, Mac, and Linux. You can preorder on Steam or Humble for 10% off the $9.99 price.
