F.A.S.T. Or Fleet Air Superiority Training is a fully functional dogfighting flight simulator utilizing tilt controls for your iPhone. Choose a fighter jet, and engage in air combat either one on one, with a teammate or against a challenge. The goal is straightforward. Shoot down the enemy jets while avoiding being shot down yourself.
This game really utilizes the accelemoters in your iPhone. Flying is handled by tilting the iPhone forward, back, left and right (although you can press buttons on the screen to accomplish this). Touch the screen to change speed, the missile or gun buttons to fire, and even the camera button to track your latest missile launch.
The game is quite nice graphically. The 3d graphics and landscapes, while not spectacular, are worth mentioning, especially when the game runs at a smooth constant framerate. There are exercises to train you in how to play the game, but the bulk of play is online. The competition out there is fierce, as this reviewer was not able to win a single dogfight.
If you enjoy flight sims, and air combat, F.A.S.T. is definitely for you. Based around online multiplayer, the game offers a tight and innovative control scheme. If you're not the competitive type however, the exercises probably arn't enough to keep you playing.
