Air Patriots is not a flight combat simulator, but South Wind Games still made one of the best flight combat games for Android devices. The tower defense game lets players destroy advancing enemy tanks with fighters and bombers..
Amazon honored the developers by giving this Air Patriots a free app of the day slot. When the player starts Air Patriots, he must choose a map. After he chooses the battlefield, he must choose the planes he wishes to use during the mission. He gets one biplane for free.
Each plane has different weapons and different capabilities. The biplane and the prop fighter are armed with machine guns that fire in a straight line. Carpet bombers attack any target underneath them, and the jet's missile fires in an arc. Additional planes and slots can be purchased using microtransactions.
The tactics start with choosing the right combination of aircraft, but controlling flight paths is more important. The looping path feature helps the player avoid collisions. Each craft involved in a crash randomly changes course.
Perhaps the most impressive feature of Air Patriots is the hardest to identify. It is addictive and fun, even though the graphics do not stress the capabilities of most Android tablets. The fee version of the game could use one improvement. South Wind Games only included one map. Air Patriots earns four out of five stars.
