This Week In Military/Aviation History 1-7 March

February 28, 2010 10:33 pm

Well Folks, since we last spoke, we had a nice little snowstorm here to remind me of the reality of my situation and needless to say my Spring Fever is back where it belongs. Just took a couple of hours of digging out to firmly position it in the right place. I don’t have to worry about it for a long time now. Just thought you’d like to know. Well as I hunker in for another month or so, why don’t we take our weekly trip down History Lane, shall we? Yes, I think we shall.

Hello Folks, seven down, a lot to go, I hope. Well, I’ll try and keep this short as you may know I tend to get blabby once I get rollin’. It seems as of late for some ungodly reason my Spring Fever is starting to overpower my Cabin Fever. Silly as it sounds. It’s not even the end of February and living all my life in the Northeast near enough to Lake Ontario to get the full benefit of Lake-effect snow, I know better, or at least I should. I guess missing out on all the fun that the Mid-Atlantic had recently has given me a false sense of security and optimism. I hope I’m not setting myself up for a big letdown. Guess we’ll have to wait and see, won’t we? Well, shall we take our weekly trip down History Lane? Yes, I think we shall.

Well Folks, that’s another seven for the history books. The Super Bowl turned out to be rather enjoyable. Now I have to pick a team to follow for next year. I do still follow the Bills, but just to see how badly they played. Who knows, next year might be different. Yeah, right. Well, enough of this, let’s move on down History Lane, shall we? Yes, I think we shall.

WW II COLOR FILM : AIRCRAFT CARRIER IN THE PACIFIC

Review: iBomber app for iPhone

February 10, 2010 7:45 pm

ibomber 1

iBomber is a surprisingly fun and addictive arcade style game for the iPhone. While it could in no way be considered a simulation of aerial combat it is still quite enjoyable and should appeal to most World War II aviation enthusiasts.

The game is basically a sandbox style shooter, meaning that the entire level takes place in a rectangular map with black walls preventing your egress from the gaming area. Your viewpoint is through the bomb site of an unknown type of American bomber (the menu screen suggests a B-17 Flying Fortress) in the Pacific Theater of Operations. You fly a series of missions against Japanese targets ranging from bunkers to battleships. You have an unlimited supply of 500 lb. iron bombs and occasionally you can acquire limited amounts of specialized bombs and health packs from bombed targets. The specialty bombs include multi-bombs, rocket bombs and bunker busters, each having a its own strength and weaknesses. The health packs are needed to repair the damage you receive from anti-aircraft artillery and the defensive fire of various enemy bombers. The aircraft fly at static heights and often orbit carriers and other surface installations and ships.

ibomber 2

Game play is simple as are the controls. You only control your direction and speed with your height being fixed. Left and right turns are accomplished but turning the iPhone left or right while throttle control is achieved by tilting the unit up to slow the aircraft down. This last feature limits playability in anything except an upright manner. Playing while laying down is not recommended as throttle control is limited at that orientation. That is a minor issue however and most people would not find it to be an issue.

If you enjoy a World War II themed combat games, don’t mind the arcade style action, and are looking for a quick, fun game then iBomber is for you. I thoroughly enjoyed this game and though it is a bit pricey at $2.99 I felt it to be worth it. There is a free trial version if you want to try before you buy.

Company: Cobra Mobile
Platform: iPhone, available through iTunes
Size: 42.9mb
Rating: 9+ for infrequent/mild cartoon or fantasy violence
Price: $2.99 as of 2/10/10, Free lite version

Well Folks, I’m startin’ kinda early so I can watch the Super Bowl…..commercials. Yeah, I kinda gave up on the game itself a few years ago when the Bills made their unsuccessful runs for that ever elusive trophy. After that, nothing ever seemed the same. No matter how hard I try, I can’t find a team I’m interested in, well, at least for very long anyway. I know there have been some embarrassing Super Bowls where a team choked or never seemed to click with any success. I usually picked those to watch when I was giving the game just that one more chance. We’ll see tonight if it’s true to form for me. I hope not.  I promise not to root for either team so you can enjoy the game, ’cause the team I show any interest in, without fail, loses. Well let’s juke & jive down History Lane, shall we? Yes, I think we shall.
