Can you outwit the enemies with Hostile Skies for BlackBerry smartphones

Until next year and the release of BlackBerry 10 we are kind of limited to really good games on the BlackBerry smartphone OS. Every so often one crops up that I like and that happened this week with Hostile Skies. There is a free edition as well as a premium one (only $0.99) and it is surprisingly good fun.

You control a plane and your mission is to destroy the enemies. Controls are nice and easy - just use the optical trackpad to move the plane and the spacebar will fire your weapon - simple.

It isn't as easy as it sounds though. Not only do the enemy fire back at you but you will also find some kamikaze pilots who are more than happy to destroy you - so you must use your ninja like reflexes to dodge them - I am still learning that bit! Hostile Skies is a great little game. I suggest you give it a try. It's kind of addictive.

Features of the game include:

  • 2 game areas (land and seaside)
  • 3 kinds of enemies (planes, kamikaze pilots, battleships)
  • 2 types of weapons
  • Well-engineered physics and behavior of enemies
  • Simple control, easy to use both for right-handed and left-handed

I wonder if it works with the touch screen. :}
