Aces Of the Luftwaffe: Squadron does a lot of things right over its short duration. Tight gameplay, small innovations to the shoot 'em up genre and terrific local co-op. Unfortunately, the grind to level up characters and lengthen the playtime turns what was once fun into a tedious and frustrating slog.
An entertaining and direct shoot em up, which tries to differentiate itself from the rest of the titles of the genre with its particularities. Although being a mobile port, you certainly notice the seams. Even so, it is ideal to pass the time.
