Played Flight Control and Harbor Master to death? Need a new line drawing fix? Then you might want to give Airstrike Defense by Indeeo Games a try. In this mission based game you take control of not only ships that you need to steer from danger, but bombers to attack the enemy ships, and often this can happen in the same level.

Like most line drawing games, to move your craft, you tap them and draw a line to where you want them to move. As the ships you can double tap for a boost, to avoid getting bombed, but the bomber has a more complex interface with boost and fire buttons (as well as room to enable powerups). As you progress through the missions and rise in rank, you also acquire perks such as faster reload speeds for your bomber.

Visually the game is competent, and you'll never have trouble finding or avoiding a target. The sound is decent and the game features ipod support if you turn the sound off in the options menu. There is only the main campaign, but you can replay individual levels for a higher score, and there is Openfeint access.

In the end Airstrike Defense is a solid line drawing game. The bombing might take a while to get used to, and the levels where you have to swap back and forth between plane and ship can be hectic, but if you're looking for a new line drawing title, this one won't do you wrong.
