Red Wings American Aces is a fantastic arcade plane shooting game. It has a very lenient lock-on system allowing even the worst aimers a fight chance at success, the graphics are crisp, the colors bright, and the gameplay as accessible as a mobile game. You can unlock new skins and planes in the single-player, multiplayer will give you all the planes upfront but you earn the skins to show off. It’s a good little package and a good arcade romp.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
