Description -
WANT TO BE A COMBAT PILOT? WANT TO FLY FOR INDIA?
This is the Official Indian Air Force 3D Air Combat Mobile Game. Live the life of an Indian Air Force Combat Pilot and Fly for India!

ONE OF THE MOST REALISTIC AIR COMBAT MOBILE GAME ON THE PLANET!
'Guardians' is the most realistic and graphic rich mobile air combat game on Android, which breaks the cliche by bringing the first Campaign based air combat game play on the mobile platform. It also sets new benchmark in graphic and game play optimization techniques and has the most elaborate collection of flying missions ever seen on a mobile platform.

THE GAME!
'Guardians' puts the player in the hot seat as an Indian Air Force Combat Pilot and takes you through one training and ten combat missions. The player learns to fly the SU 30 high performance jet and subsequently flies as a Mi 17 pilot. While the training mission teaches the player the basics of flying training, the two operational missions lay down the foundation for the story in which war clouds are hanging over India and Zaruzia, a country planning to wage war on India. The eight subsequent missions will see a full fledged air war between Zaruzia and India and will feature all operational mission profiles as flown by the IAF and feature the SU 30, M2000, Tejas, Phalcon AWACS, C17, C130, Mi 17, Mi 35 and ALH Dhruv aircraft.

CONTROLS!
Motion Sensors and Touch Based. Default Motion Sensor selected.

AWARDS!
The player achieves campaign ribbons and gallantry awards as he progresses across various missions.

FLYING MODES!
Arcade mode is available for the first three missions, while a cockpit simulation mode will be added for the remaining eight missions releasing as part of phase two on 08 Oct 14.

FEATURES!
- Very Realistic Mission Profiles
- Highly detailed aircraft models and other assets
- Featuring fighters, transport and helicopter aircraft of the IAF
- Easy to learn training mission for new flyers
- Ten Operational Missions featuring various IAF roles
- Advanced air combat depictions with modern air to air and air to ground weapons
- Uncluttered Head Up Display optimized to display relevant information
- Aircraft Skin changes in phase two
- Multiplayer in phase two
- Optimized for low to medium end smartphones
- First mobile game to be officially based on the Indian Air Force

GAME RELEASE VERSIONS!
Present version - One Training Mission, Two Combat Missions
Next Version (08 October 14) - Eight Combat Missions

MINIMUM SPECIFICATIONS!
The Guardians runs on configuration above 1Ghz dual core with 1 GB RAM

THE MISSION!
Play the Game. Join the Mission!

GUARDIANS OF THE SKIES

Governing criteria for making the game -

1. Game to be a motivating recruitment tool for the 14 to 20 year old age group
2. Should be campaign based and showcase IAF aircraft and mission profiles
3. Should not be a classic simulator which appeals to only serious professionals. All simulation aspects should be under the hood and not noticeable by the player.
4. Should have an entertaining storyline and game play.
5. One simple training mission and ten operational missions.
6. Keeping in mind that the Indian public is not tuned to playing the Air Combat genre, the game would be released in two phases. The first phase will have one training and two simple operational missions. Phase 2 will have have eight missions and the full 'all out war campaign'.
7. Should have advanced graphics and reality features (Hence smoothly playable only on 1 gb RAM mobiles)
8. Guns and Rockets in the first phase. AAMs, LGBs etc in second phase.

Missions -

Training - On SU30 MKI. Follow simple instructions and land the aircraft to earn your wing.
Mission One - Anti Piracy - SU 30MKI
Mission Two - Search & rescue - Mi 17V5
Mission Three - Combat Rescue and Night Vision Combat - C130J
Mission Four - Base Defence - Mirage2000
Mission Five - High Value Asset Protection - SU30MKI/M2000/Tejas
Mission Six - Tanking Ops - IL78MD/ M2000
Mission Seven - Counter Air - SU30MKI/M2000/Tejas
Mission Eight - Anti Tank - Mi35/ ALH
Mission Nine - Precision Strikes - SU30MKI/M2000/Tejas
Mission Ten - Defending a major city of India - SU30MKI

Phase One Launch - 03 Jul 14
Phase Two Launch - 08 Oct 14.

I have a problem. It stops abruptly in the first single player mission when the aircraft moves to the island. I've even uninstalled and re-installed the game. Same problem, every time
Can the team have a look into it?

Sameer sir, one more request: I was reading Eagles over Bangladesh - may be you might want to consider that as an inspiration for some of the scenarios or possibly also create a vintage IAF game!

IAF may get the 1965 missions gamified next year on occasion of 50 years celebrations of the 1965 Indo Pak campaign.

But this will happen only if the present 'Guardians' game achieves some success.....but hats off to the IAF to try this virtual strategy to connect to Indian youth. I hope the other forces follow soon...eg our developer group is placed well to develop a game on the Vikramaditya and Indian Army Special forces.......and the Indian public really digs this bit.....long live our armed forces....

Sameer ji - Why this app is not available in Nigeria ? :x Please do not do this to your Nigerian abdullas just because we fly Chinese F-7. We promise we won't steal Su30MKI technology. :((

May i provide some suggestion? Please introduce Tejas to the game.
If the game for Vikramaditya is launched, please include the new Indigenous built Vikrant class aircraft carrier and Tejas to be launched from both AC's. If needed give a year like 2020, so that there is no issue with induction and dates.

Another suggestion is to build a tank game similar in quality and realism like Armoured Aces with Arjun MK-I and MK-II :)

Congratulations for bringing a game based on Indian Air Force. Liberation for an Indian game enthusiast to have an option to play for his/her own country rather than a solider of the U.S :) A great start and appreciate you for such a start.

Yes. But like the IAF, other forces also have to take initiative.

Sameer and his fellow developers, my compliments at the great effort.

I only did the Training mission till now, and I loved the entire execution. I used to be a former fan of "Skies of Glory" .. and this one is just as great if not better. Now if we can only have Player vs Player or Online Play feature...

Performance was great - Absolutely no problems on the Nexus5 /Android 4.4

Sameer,
I have a S4 and the game is repeatedly force-stopping and restarting.
I have closed bulk of my apps on the phone and still the same result.

I noticed that specifically, when I fly low(below 1000 ft), the hang is more prominent.
Do you have the link for the PC version by any chance?

For me too ... Samsung Galaxy S4 seems to have some problem with this game. I am running Andriod 4.4.2 on my S4 and the motion sensor often freezes and doesn't respond. Even the touch mode control is edgy.

However this game played beautifully on Galaxy Note 2 (running on Android 4.3). I completed both the available missions and its awesome! :D :D

Added later: I particularly liked shooting those drones with machine gun on Mi17 (Mission 2). Eagerly waiting for phase2 release

@ Jagan - thanks a lot. coming from you it means a lot :D

Gentlemen, we are getting an update out soon, where we are downgrading the graphics to be playable on the low to mid range phones. Hope it will resolve a lot of issues.

But the meat of the matter will come out on eighth of October.........cheers

Force Close after several attempts in destroying pirates' mothership

****

After accident/destruction of own aircraft the screen continuously flashes even after interrupting several times by touching 'restart' or 'resume' or 'quit'


***

Why only rockets and guns, why not R73 / Air launched Brahmos / LGBs?

Yes. We are only worried about IOS, where Apple likes to check each app and only then deploy on the App store. Hence a delay in appearance. Also no date can be predicted.

Does this mean I should avoid the update if the game is running fine on my phone? The game is great but I don't want downgraded graphics after the update.

In any case, big thumbs up for creating this!

Yup, the update will have performance optimization for low end phones. If your game is runny well, no need to update. It is delayed along with Windows to end of this month.

Btw the 512 mb playable version update for Android will be as good looking as it's heavy duty predecessor. All are good to download to get better fps while playing.

Enjoyable game, well done! Was able to initiate a pretty convincing stall which is great for a game that doesn't try to be a serious simulator. Would be excellent to get a desktop version to be played with a joystick, specially with the other enhancements coming, ie lbg, missiles, awacs etc. Wish you guys all success with this.
