Squadron is the subtitle of the second installment of the Aces of the Luftwaffe series. As in the first installment of the series, the game is a dynamic shoot'em up, developed by German studio HandyGames.
The action of Aces of the Luftwaffe: Squadron takes place after the events presented in the previous installment of the series. The devs present an alternative version of history 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 from 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 formula developed for the first installment of the series. The devs provided us with several pilots, each of which has a different machine and a special recharging attack.
As we play, our plane constantly flies towardes the upper edge of the screen and we have to maneuver it properly to avoid enemy fire while taking off enemy units. In addition to common 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 sheer size. On the battlefield, we can find useful power-ups, and as we progress, we gain experience levels and unlock skills that increase the combat potential of each pilot.
Aces of the Luftwaffe: Squadron can be played both solo and with up to three players in the local co-op mode.
Aces of the Luftwaffe: Squadron features colorful visuals in an eye-catching cartoonish style. The game takes place with the accompaniment of an inspiring soundtrack.
