If you find yourself with time on your hands and nothing to do on this dull Thursday afternoon, allow me to direct your attention to Altitude. It’s a cute, cartoony little 2D multiplayer aerial combat game with multiple modes of #gameplay and an unexpectedly sophisticated control scheme. More to the point, developer #NimblyGames is now offering it completely free.
Having spent a few minutes with Altitude to offer any definitive opinions, but PC Gamer UK said it’s “deceptively deep [and] rewarding to master”. Plus it’s a relatively tiny download—62 meg or thereabouts—so why not?
And in fact, it does look pretty good. It offers multiple free-for-all and team-based gameplay modes, Call of Duty-style perks, a variety of power-ups, and a throttle-based flight model complete with stalls. And it’s free? Because it is.
