  NGames Detail BoomSky's Warplane and Hangar Systems
  Share on Twitter Share on Facebook RSS

[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource GamesPress.]

Publisher NGames has today revealed new gameplay details for upcoming strategic aerial combat MMO, BoomSky.

Launching soon, BoomSky is a gorgeously graphical multiplayer browser game that transports players to the cockpits of customisable fighter planes. Tearing across the sky on adrenaline fuelled adventures, collecting new planes, and customising hangers is all in a days work for BoomSky pilots.

Players collect, customise, and pilot a wide variety of warplanes and deadly flying machines, each with their own attributes and gameplay benefits. BoomSky features hundreds of warplanes and aerial contraptions for players to collect, which they can earn by completing strategic dog-fighting quests and missions.

Warplanes are stored in a personal Hangar, which acts as a central hub for a plethora of BoomSky's gameplay options. Not only does the hanger provide a place for pilots to store all of their planes and customise them with a new lick of paint, it also lets them access the in-game shop for additional parts, and provides access to the “try your luck” item slot machines for further plane enhancements.

Customising warplanes with new dyes is all about player choice. From a red Red Baron to a patchy Apache, players are given the tools to go to town on their aircraft to make it stand out in BoomSky's crowded clouds.

Boomsky features colourful anime graphics, exciting backdrops and a raft of fascinating content across multiple modes of play. BoomSky's keyboard controlled air battles throw off the shackles of mouse-only browser-based gaming, lending the gameplay experience an old school flavour with a fresh graphical twist.


NGames will be revealing more information on BoomSky in the run up to the games release.
