Challenge a player next to you in this local two-player game for a fight of who is the true ace in the skies. Challenge your opponent in two different game modes in this retro-inspired arcade game.
“Fight on and fly on to the last drop of blood and the last drop of fuel, to the last beat of the heart.”
― Baron Manfred von Richthofen
Using a limited color palette (NES) with handmade pixel graphics, custom animations and intense two-player action gameplay this game brings you back to a time where things were simpler.
Your goal is to dominate the skies and outmaneuver your opponent at any cost. Score a point by shooting down the other player, and don't crash your own plane! Best of three rounds wins. Use the power-ups to your advantage and master the game by limiting your shooting and acceleration to when you really need it!
Conquer the Banner:
Conquer the Banner extends the Dogfight game mode by introducing a banner which your aim is to catch and drop at your base. Best of five rounds wins! Shooting down your opponent won't give you a point, but it will get you a tactical advantage! Steal the banner from your opponent by hitting them with a bullet or with your own plane.
BulletReign includes some power-ups which the players can utilize:
Speed boost - Increases the duration of your speed boost temporarily.
Bullet burst - Increases the limit of your bullets temporarily.
