Air Bandits, from developer Insofta Games, is a side-scrolling
airplane-shooter. In other words, itís a clash of two genres
that you wouldnít necessarily expect to work together. But Air
Bandits manages to keep it together and be entertaining.
You control your aircraft with the mouse, clicking to shoot
and drop bombs. Navigation is adequate, but seems to be clunky
at times, especially since you often find yourself shooting at
targets on the ground. A fun hook in the game is that the
environment is destructible, allowing you to blast through
obstacles rather than pilot yourself over them.
In short, if youíre looking for something thatís a little
different, and you can overlook a few hiccups in gameplay, go
ahead and give Air Bandits a try.
