Squadron is the subtitle of the second part of the Aces of the Luftwaffe cycle. Like the first part of the series, this production is a dynamic shoot'em up game, developed by German studio HandyGames.
The action of Aces of the Luftwaffe: Squadron takes place after the events presented in the previous part of the cycle. The authors present an alternative version of the story in which, after a failed offensive against the UK, German air forces send their best pilots - the title Aces of Luftwaffe - to attack the United States. The players are responsible for defending their invasion.
In Aces of the Luftwaffe: Squadron the action is shown in a top-down view. The game does not differ significantly from the scheme developed for the first installment of the cycle. The authors provide us with several pilots, each of which has a different machine and a special attack requiring recharging.
As we play, our plane constantly flashes up the screen and we have to manoeuvre it properly to avoid enemy fire, while taking off enemy units. In addition to serial enemies in bulk quantities, powerful bosses stand in our way; these impress not only with their attack strength and resistance to damage, but also with their size. On the battlefield you can find useful power-ups, and as you progress, you gain experience levels and unlock skills that increase the combat potential of each pilot.
Aces of the Luftwaffe: Squadron can be played both alone and with up to three players in the local cooperation mode.
Aces of the Luftwaffe: Squadron has colourful graphics in an eye-catching cartoon style. The struggle takes place with the accompaniment of a soundtrack warming up to battle.
