Did we miss something on diversity?

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that AirAttack HD is a throwback to arcade shoot-em-up games that were popular in the late 1980s and mid-90s. As the name implies, you do little other than destroy other planes, ships, bridges, and buildings. There is some Nazi imagery in the game, but you play the part of the Allies, destroying those buildings and fortresses. It's a game that requires good reflexes and lots of concentration -- and could cause players to become frustrated, as certain areas are particularly difficult.

Is It Any Good?
AIRATTACK HD is the best air combat shooter in the App store. Anyone who enjoyed Capcom's arcade standard 1942 (or any of its follow-ups) will instantly recognize its style and appreciate the similarities. Its eight missions will keep people entertained for a long time -- and are different enough from each other to prevent any feelings of repetition. While sections are a bit overly difficult, the game lets you pick up from your last checkpoint, so there's never a real penalty for losing. Developer Art in Games also put together a stirring orchestral soundtrack to add to the immersion. The lack of an online leader board is a bit disappointing, but it's a minor complaint for a game this well made.
