Air Gunner is a high-speed plane shooting and strategy military game for kids, teens and adults, where you play the role of a backup airborne support (an anti-aircraft gunner protecting the forefront bomber plane) by shooting enemy planes out of the sky using various weapons that include a Submachine gun, Machine gun, Twin Machine gun, and more specialized artillery – a Mini-gun and Cannon. This is a full-on aerial assault by the enemy – an explosive action adventure not to be missed! To defend your bomber plane and its crew, requires a very steady nerve, excellent hand eye coordination, expert tactical knowledge of these weapons and their unique capabilities along with super-sharp shooting skills! With superb graphics and epic (true to life) sound and shooting effects, this test of skill and bravery will put you firmly in a war zone – right in the heart of the action and right on the edge!
OK Air Gunner, your job is to protect the bomber to the right of the game screen from a relentless airborne assault by enemy aircrafts. Make no mistake; it’s going to get hairy up there! You start out with machine guns but once you score enough credit points, you can buy other more advanced weapons (that differ in terms of damage, accuracy, fire rate etc.). Your bomber is the one flying in front and you are flying alongside it – firing at approaching enemy planes from the left. Every time the enemy planes get a successful hit on your bomber plane, the bomber’s health reduces. You can see the damage caused to your bomber in percentage numbers displayed beneath the plane. You have to shoot down all the enemy aircraft in order to pass each level. If your bomber runs out of health (from the non-stop enemy assault) it’s game over – you’ve failed to protect. Once you pass a level, you can see how much bonus credit you have earned. You are now given the option to either upgrade your weapons arsenal or use the credit earned to repair damage to the bomber aircraft. Which would you choose – powerful weapons to protect a weakened plane or weaker weapons (used skillfully) to protect a healthier plane? You decide! You’re the Air Gunner – you know the capabilities. OK, let’s recap…Mission Summary: Take them down. Take them out. Get the job done. Good luck Soldier.
How To Play: Use your computer mouse to aim and left click on it to fire. Hold down the left button for continuous fire. Press the (X) key on your computer keyboard to switch to the next weapon and the (Z) key to switch to the previous weapon. Press (R) for manual reloads. You can see the bomber’s health bar (green and red) on top of the plane and the enemy’s health bars on top of their planes. Once the health bars turn fully red, the planes explode. You can see your remaining rounds in the bottom right corner of the game screen.
TIP: You don’t need to click continuously on your computer mouse to destroy the oncoming enemy airplanes – just hold the left button and you fire rounds non-stop (until you have to reload). However, you should stop shooting when moving from one target to the other in order to stabilize your machine gun and achieve better accuracy. If you shoot continuously for more than 4 seconds, you can see the accuracy markers on the targets sights spreading wider – meaning less accuracy. Bring it on Hot Shot!
