I think I may have just found my new favorite game on BlackBerry 10. Biplanes Blasta is just the sort of game I love to play. There are actually three games within the game which is always a bonus. These are:

  • Balloons: keep cool and pop some balloons at your own pace.
  • Race: Push your limits by racing through gates close to the ground.
  • DogFight: Action starts here, against your friends (local network)

There are a couple of ways to control your plane - I prefer using the tilt controls but if you jump into the settings you can easily switch to a virtual on-screen joypad if you prefer. The only other controls you need to worry about are your weapons and this tab can be found on the right of the screen.

So, in Balloon and Dogfight mode you will need to use your machine guns to destroy the balloons or your opponent. As you destroy things or do well in a race you will earn coins which you can use to upgrade your guns - good stuff.

The game is colorful, fluid and has some great sound effects. With the added bonus of three different scenes in each game there are hours of great game play to be had. Plus - all this for less than a dollar!

You make me spend money :D (with all the useful apps you mention...)

Nice game though - and a key factor, it is small.

Downloaded is to just to support the developer because it works flawlessly on the Q10. Hope more developers make this effort in future.

I wonder where the developer got his inspiration from? Wonder if he's been to Wuhu island?

My accelerometer seems to keep messing up so that I can't make the plane climb up. It's fine when I close and reopen the game, but into a game or two and the controls are messed up again. Anyone know if there's a way to reset the accelerometer for this game? I'm horrible at the touch controls....

Okay, I found a workaround to what was probably just a bug with the race I was in. If in the beginning of a race you can't seem to fly up, fly sideways a bit until you do end upward, then climb high and do a bunch of extreme maneuvers. This seemed to reset the accelerometer so it acts normally. The good thing is the timer for a race doesn't start until you cross the first goalpost so there's time to recalibrate if things get wonky. Once I could control the plane it got super fun! Just tried some other races and everything was fine, so back to enjoying flying in this awesome game!

Stupid Verizon! It isn't available for my Z10STL100-4/10.0.9.2743. Need at least 10.0.10.xxx I'm sure.

It sucks for us who can't get it to Buy! Its just like the reboot thing, can't get the update! Looks cool though. Hope it's not five bucks if and when we ever get it.

Good game and only 90 euro cent.

Got it. Is there a single player dogfight with AI opponents though?

Posted via CB10

StefanoB

I'm wondering about the dogfight mode, no single player? And what does it mean "2 player local"? That I need another BlackBerry 10 on my wifi network?
