The Battle of Britain has passed into history as a textbook example of a backs-to-the wall victory against overwhelming odds.
However, we doubt those odds involved a single heavily armed fighter plane - with the occasional help of two wing-men - going up against the might of the entire German airforce.
But then, video games are known for taking liberties, and Aces of the Luftwaffe uses this exaggeration to form a competent if unspectacular 2D shoot-'em-up for iOS.
Carrying the fight
The setting might be the green fields of Great Britain, the English Channel, and the war-torn European mainland, but Aces of the Luftwaffe's core gameplay could have been set in outer space 2,000 years into the future.
A competent and challenging 2D shoot-'em-up that fails to add anything of note to the genre
