It’s a complex game because of the different aspects to master. There is the navigation and action of the bombing raids themselves. There is a wider strategy of managing which crew does what to keep your plane in the sky. Then there is bombing the target and managing fuel and damage to the plane.
You upgrade, customise and name your aircraft and can even add your own nose art. You have to get the right balance of reliability and firepower is crucial for successful bombing raids. Then you recruit and train your crew from countless possible recruits. As you name, dress and train these individuals you build a team you will rely on. But if any of them should die during a raid, then you lose them for good. The bombing raids themselves mean you need to navigate through enemy fighters, flak and other deadly hazards to reach your target.
9+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it’s important for parents and guardians to ensure they understand in-game purchases and have spending limits set-up. Younger players need to be able to prioritise tasks under pressure. They also need to be able to manage multiple systems at the same time, both attending to the mission, fuel and damage of the plane with the different crew members.
