For a long time, developers just couldn't get enough of the World War 1 and 2 eras, but now that many of them have decided to explore the modern era it's almost refreshing to jump back to something more 'classic'. '1951 - World War One' by Treehouse is based in an alternate history setting, with the first World Wars never occurring and after a technological collapse the world has gone to war in the early 50's.
Gameplay couldn't be simpler as you start a career as one of three currently available pilots who are out to make a name for themselves by crushing as many aerial opponents as possible. The game is played in a top-down view, utilizing tilts to turn your vehicle, a simple throttle bar to select your speed and jamming the firing button to make short work of your enemies. There are RPG elements to the gameplay also, with skills that can be activated to repair or rain down destruction on your foes and leveling up allows you to select from perks to further customize your pilot in to a deadly killing machine.
1951 is an amazing blend of simple cartoon designs that will be familiar to anyone who has brushed past games like Fallout and ultra realistic sky environments. Each of the available environments are striking and dramatic, going from clear open forest skies to heavy clouded storms and you'll soon get to experience how effective some camouflage is when two planes creep up your arse seemingly from no where.

TouchArcade review (iPhone): "This game is just great [...] 1951 – World War One is a very nice variant on the 1942 shooter formula that's extremely well put together. It's visually quite impressive and works you a bit harder than a more typical fire-and-forget shooter."
