Skies of Glory lets iPhone and Android gamers square off

iPhone and Android users can engage in combat by playing Skies of Glory: Battle for Britain. This Geekend reviewer explains what she likes about the adventure game.

SGN's Skies of Glory: Battle of Britain app features great graphics and engaging gameplay. Up to eight users can play the game on a local network (Wi-Fi, 3G, or Bluetooth) that includes iPhones, iPods, iPads, and Android devices. Perhaps the best part of this game is the many available modes. Single player is a great way to learn how to control the plane, but the real fun is when you play Internet quick matches and phone-to-phone multiplayer.

Skies of Glory: Battle for Britain costs $6.99 for the iPhone/iPod/iPad version (it requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later) and $4.99 for the Android version (it requires Android 2.0 OS and does not support the Hero or Eris). The game has received high ratings from users of both phones. Not surprisingly, this reviewer likes it too.

Unless my understanding of history is wrong The Battle of Britain was mainly the RAF with help from the Allies (not including the US at this time), Czechs and Poles against the Lufftwaffe, Hence the Mitsubishi Zero-III pictured is very unlikely to have appeared in combat.

If the current brtish Prime Minister can't remember these little "facts" you can hardly blame non-brit games developers.
