1980s-style Arcade Airplane Shooting Game - H.A.W.X. 2

Rating: 8.5/10 - 479 votes

1980s nostalgia game time! H.A.W.X. 2 is an intense 8-bit arcade plane shooting game where you have to pass a series of action-packed fighter pilot missions. Inspired by the legendary Tom Clancy’s Xbox game of similar name, here you have to dodge and weave your way through scrolling battle zones filled with enemy jets, bomber planes, anti-aircraft guns, and more airborne mayhem than you could bargain for! Your goal is to protect allied land against invading enemy forces.

H.A.W.X. stands for High Altitude Warfare: eXperimental Squadron, and you are one of the few elite arcade pilots that has been called up to join this uniquely-skilled air force unit. Your fighter jet is jam-packed with more than enough firepower - you simply have to maneuver this bird in the right direction! Quick reactions, and the uncanny ability to dodge and weave your way through constant enemy fire are essential attributes required in this non-stop battle challenge. Smart decision making skills are also imperative as you carefully plan your way through certain missions. Going "gung-ho" might not always be the best play; First survey the scene, weigh up your options, and strike with all your might! Don’t be afraid either to try out some spectacular flying tricks. As well as feeling absolutely awesome, you might just fool some of the enemy pilots. Ok Captain, we simply cannot wait to see some of those trademark Maverick moves!

How to Play: (Note: Once the game loads, click on the blue ‘Continue’ button at the bottom of the loading screen.) As a key member of the H.A.W.X. Squadron, your objective is to rid the skies of enemy bomber planes in each increasingly challenging mission. Each level features an initial period of fighting against small fighter planes and bombers before you finally come up against a ‘Boss’ plane at the end of the level (which you must eliminate to progress to the next mission).

Use the Arrow Keys on your computer keyboard to maneuver your fighter jet around the top-to-bottom scrolling game screen. Your missiles fire automatically, but you can also switch this feature off by pressing Spacebar, and using your Z Key as a manual firing button (we recommend leaving automatic firing on as your missiles are unlimited). Collect the Gold and Silver Stars left behind by eliminated enemy aircraft to increase your score in the top right corner of the game screen. You can also pick up helpful Power-Ups that increase your firepower. If you are hit by enemy fire, or come into contact with an enemy plane, you lose some health from the Health Bar in the top left corner of the play area. You have three spare lives at the beginning of the game, so fly with courage but with top concentration at all times! Enjoy!
