Take to the skies with a stiff upper lip in our period top-down shooter, and give those rotters 'what for' over 20 challenging levels.

Then take on the never-ending Arcade mode and prove yourself as Ace of Skies!


1. In what time period is Ace of Skies set?

Ace of Skies is set during a time of war. Several wars, in fact, including some imaginary ones.

2. Wait - is that a UFO?

Of course not. None of the flying objects in this game are unidentified, not even the alien space craft.

3. What's the best upgrade strategy?

FunOrb boss Mod Korpz goes for armour and guns, nimble-fingered designer Mod Thomas chooses wingmen and speed upgrades, and developer Mod Nirdgirl favours guns and turn speed. Everyone has their own style, so experiment to find yours.
