Dogfighting arcade game Blazin’ Aces has been doing really well in the first six days since it launched. Duncan Bell, the game’s creator, told us that it has climbed onto the top 30 paid apps list in both the iOS and Android stores.

It’s no wonder, too: Blazin’ Aces costs just R10 or so ($1), and it has been reviewing really well. Our own thoughts on the game reflected its overall quality and fun-factor, and international press seem to agree.

In case you don’t know, Blazin’ Aces is a dogfighting side-scroller set in the golden era of aviation (World War I & II) that pits your reflexes and agility against a host of AI opponents as you go after the high score. It’s challenging but fair, and a great way to kill a few minutes here and there on your phone or tablet.

Since its release Blazin’ Aces has also been ported to Android, making it available on Google’s platform as well as Microsoft’s and Apple’s.

Grab it here (Android), here (iOS) and here (Windows Phone).

Deon got his first taste of PC gaming at the tender age of 11 when his father bought an 8088 XT, ostensibly to "help him with his homework". Instead, it introduced him to Leisure Suit Larry, King Graham, Sonny Bonds and many more, and Deon has been a PC gamer and hardware enthusiast ever since. He landed his first professional writing gig in 2006 at a prestigious local PC magazine, a very happy happenstance as he got to write for a living about things he loves - tech, PCs, gaming, and everything in between. He's been writing about it all ever since, and loves every minute of it.
