Classic Biplanes is a Simple Retro Flash Facebook Game

Classic Biplanes is a simple flash animation game developed by Michael Edlavitch.

The charmingly retro game puts you in control of a little biplane that must bravely shoot down other biplanes and unarmed parachuting soldiers. (I guess we’re supposed to assume these unarmed paratroopers have done something wrong to justify our shooting them down?)

The animation is very simple and the game play isn’t particularly deep or compelling. It does, however, have a two-player option for those of you who like to get chummy and share a keyboard. That said, for high schoolers who want to play a game while in computer lab, the two-player arcade elements may prove compelling.

There isn’t much to say for other social elements – the Facebook game is exactly the same as the flash game hosted on the website. There are other Flash arcade games out there, but few as boldly retro.

Game play: 4

Development: 3

Graphics: 2 (but they’re cute)
