Sky Force Anniversary is the work of the independent Polish studio Infinite Dreams. The production is a remake of an extremely warm welcome game Sky Force, whose premiere took place in 2004.
In Sky Force Anniversary, we sit at the helm of futuristic fighters and our task is to stop the sinister General Mantis from taking control of the world. The tasks set before us include the elimination of opponents, as well as rescuing defenceless civilians, while the struggles take place in diverse, shimmering with the feast of colours sceneries.
The gameplay itself is based on the classic shoot'em up schema - the plane automatically flies up the screen and the player's role is limited to shooting down incoming opponents and manoeuvring between enemy missiles and terrain obstacles. On our way we can see not only various flying units, but also ground installations such as stationary shooting towers, or not very mobile, although having a powerful arsenal of tanks. In addition, we often face bosses that require reflex and dexterity, as well as the development of effective tactics and powerful weapons.
The range of weapons is extensive and includes rifles and rocket launchers, as well as laser guns and bombs that wreak havoc in the ranks of the enemy. The ability to upgrade the arsenal and shields installed on board the fighter also provides an advantage over the enemy.
In addition to the single player mode, the Sky Force Anniversary features a gameplay variant designed for two people to play together on the screen. The competition with other players is facilitated by weekly online tournaments, where you can face unique challenges.
Sky Force Anniversary was released more than ten years after the premiere of the original Sky Force. Compared to the original the production boasts high quality, three-dimensional graphics, full of flashes of special effects flooding the screen. In addition, for the game from scratch, control was designed, original music was composed and all dialogue issues were sounded.
