They took Space War and crossed it with Defender and took out the dumbass civvies and it just owns. Got it on my Vita and it's a great toilet game.

Anyone got any hot tips on how to beat a zeppelin? Because I can't.

My memory is lovely, but I believe I had the most luck killing zepplins with the melee body. Takes a while, but it was the most consistent for me.

Or the nuke body.

Yeah, I've been having the most luck with actually getting to the first zeppelin with Melee, and surviving inside the zeppelin's sprite is much easier than dodging its missiles. Haven't managed it the whole way through but it's worth practising I guess. Might try to use the Nuke body just to get that first kill in, there's so many missions locked behind that first zeppelin kill.

I've only gotten a zeppelin to spawn like two times, and couldn't kill it either time. I even had the nuke body for one of them.

I like the name as it is. It fits the Nazi German stereotyping theme the rest of the game has going on (the results guy with the one bad eye is spot-on ). Think it's supposed to mean something like "Air Marcher" or something like that.

edit: Wait, no I got it! Of course, it's so simple! "Skywalker"!

Awesome!

nope

it literally translates to "air-outers", in the sense of someone that lets the air out of sth

I think you may be right, though I did manage to complete a few challenges. They seemed pretty easy, though, like they were just checking whether I had gotten to SMFT or not.

Just killed a zeppelin with a laser on a build that was all-random! Think it was called the Tube Fighter or something like that. Almost took down a second zeppelin, too. Nice to know their butt is their weakness.

yeah my favorite build is laser heavy body jet engine. laser is really good for zeppelins and battleships because you dont have to see them to hit them with it

i never really got good at this game, but i feel like the only way to get a high score is to game the enemy spawns somehow. when the game starts to spam battleships, it means fewer planes + boats in the level, and it's impossible to get a good combo at that point. i feel like 1 battleship counts as multiple smaller enemies too, in terms of the overall cap.

not sure what the best strategy would be, but i guess it involves keeping the initial swarm of planes alive and picking away at it when your combo starts to run out, and just hope you don't get too many battleships.

Play in Hard Mode if you want combos

i'm no nazi expert but my extensive experience with hogans heroes indicates that the luftwaffe were just soldiers following orders and it was the ss that were the actual active nazi party members and probably predates the whole nazi fad entirely

Thats not really fair though because someone who watches a lot of Hogan's Heroes probably knows more about nazis than the average american public school educated person.
