I downloaded the game but couldn't play it for as log as I wanted.

In the limited time I had with game, it'a big improvement as far as the performance is concerned. Lags are gone and game is very smooth now, for training missions.

Still can't play on Samsung Galaxy S4.

In the first level, it works fine till rescuing the oil tankers. The moment I fly over the island, game crashes and restarts. I have sent the report from my mobile as well. Request the team to fix this!

Gentlemen, deeply apologize for the inconvenience. We are having a definite software issue with the S4. While we are doing the bug fixing, I recommend you try on any other variety of smartphone.

Yes Sir, we have been able to smoothen and bug fix the game to a great extent.

Experience the gameplay when you have time....

Really appreciate the graphics. Can the graphics for the plane be further improved?
1) Calibrate option not working hence not able to pull up or down. Initially had tough time to take off because of this problem until i changed the input option from motion to touch. The input option of touch can also be removed. it seems unwanted in a smart phone.
2)The quit button comes at the same place of the play button. So if it's pressed twice the chance of quitting the game exits.
3)If possible please let the firing button be on the right side while the input option is motion. This will help to fire the weapon easily.
4) Please introduce the various views like external and cockpit which can be changed with the switch of a button. If possible realistic cockpit view will be really good.
5) I have played till the first few training levels. Would like introduction of missile in this mode, so that the flying targets can be easily brought down. The missiles in IAF inventory and Astra could be good options.

I did play Air Navy Fighters Lite and the handling of the aircraft with the phone is superb. If you could get that level of comfort for the gamer in handling of the aircraft and firing of weapons, then it's really well and good.

Appreciate the effort. It's a good one at the moment. Hope you could make it a fantastic game with further improvements.

Looks like I jumped the gun. The training missions are indeed smooth.

But the first mission itself is hanging up as before. The game skips whenever the plane gets close to water and there are explosions (which probably put a load on GPU. There is a bit of improvement, but not that good so as to allow proper gameplay.
I'm using an old Samsung Tab 2. No chance of buying a new one in near future for just a game.

Completed both missions. Smooth running on Lumia 920 except when explosions happen in near quarters where it stutters a little.
Wish list
    More missions
    HUD
    More "realistic" flight model

downloaded and finished playing both mission available as of now, on my Sony Xperia, the helicopter landing part on the rig as well as the hunting of the enemy sub is very tricky indeed.

Sameer, great start! Keep up the good work.

BTW, why does the plane jerk suddenly.. (not necessarily when close to water)... is it sonic boom or something like that?
When the plane passes through explosions there is definitely a slow down... otherwise enjoyed the game so far!

Just One point gentlemen - The Full version releasing on Eighth October will be the most realistic simulation of the airborne capability with missions and game play which no developer has deployed on the face of the earth. We will focus on the realistic element of weapons and tactics along with entertainment............Aim is to showcase what we in India are capable of developing.

May the Threye team be a sign of major changes in IAF with more Indians winning contracts and the IAF going desi. Happy Independence Day and Vande Mataram to all at Threye.

Sameer: Excellent game, cannot wait for October. Kudos to you and your team for this.

This may be my nit pick, control on the iphone were a little hard (maybe my fingers are li'l fat ;) ). I played on the ipad and loved it.

I play this almost every evening on my IPad mini. Have completed the missions already multiple times.

However, I keep challenging myself to complete the entire mission without getting hit, reducing the time taken, trying for one pass kills, etc!.

Keep up the good work Threye. You are doing great.

Vikrant, IAF has delayed the launch to end of November . However if anyone amongst you would like to get hold of the beta build and test it to give feedback, please drop in a line at info@threye.com. We will send you a build. This applies only to Android as of now. More info at https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... gots&hl=en

Graphics are mind blowing. Perhaps need to work on HUD to conform to real ones. JMT.

The game is designed for a mobile phone. Hence the HUD area available in cockpit view is very less. To clutter it beyond Height, Speed, FIRE command & Horizon bar will reduce the comprehension ability of most of the players, especially so for non flyers. Unlike a PC, this is a serious limitation for the mobile format........In fact most players will prefer the arcade mode except some with a lot of simulation games / actual flying experience.......But its great to test one's ability against the enemy in the cockpit mode which adds to realism to an extent.

Any plan to convert it to PC games and also to the level of Simulators with multiple screens, Panoramic graphics and realistic controls ( generally available off the shelves) attached to PC, like Joystick , rudder and paddle control etc, throttle control. That would be great.

Not right now sir. The IAF mandate is to focus on the mobile version for greater penetration amongst the target group. In the end this is a motivation & recruitment attraction tool.

Played the game!! It is amazing! Already completed all missions (in easy mode ;)) Now playing in higher modes. I love that it allows the user to select between aircraft as well (LCA, M2K,Rambha, Mi35 and LCH!). Great use of graphics.
