LOS ANGELES - December 19, 2012 /Atypical Games/ - Atypical Games, the premier maker of combat flight games for mobile devices, announced today Sky Gamblers™:  Storm Raiders has two new planes landing shortly. Additionally Sky Gamblers™:  Air Supremacy was just inducted into the App Store Hall of Fame. Out of over 700,000 apps and games available on the App Store, Sky Gamblers was selected as one of just 13 new iPhone app inductees.

The two new planes are the famous Macchi C.202 and the infamous Messerschmitt Me 262.  The Italian Macchi was considered to be one the best wartime fighters, while the German Messerschmitt was the first operational jet plane in history.  They will add to the already intense multiplayer action where more than 250,000 battles have been played already.  In those battles 750,000 planes have been unlocked and 70,000 player rank-ups have occurred.   If every player added up their time in game it would come to 10 years and 2 months.  This includes the single player campaign as well where 200,000 missions have been completed, adding up to a whopping 1,300,000 total games in both modes.  If there is anyone left who hasn't stepped into the virtual cockpit, now is the time.   

From the makers of Sky Gamblers™:  Air Supremacy comes Sky Gamblers™: Storm Raiders featuring console-quality graphics with incredibly detailed terrain, physics, and a precise collision and damage system, all in multiple realistic locations. Missions take place in an accurately recreated Pearl Harbor, Midway, the British Coast of Dover, the French Coast of Calais, in the Mariana Islands and other locations of real battles from World War II.  Using models of entire cities with thousands of buildings, and a wide variety of landmarks, the world comes to life as players fly through it all in high definition designed for retina devices.  For more information on Sky Gamblers: Storm Raiders, please visit, or to purchase the app please go here.
