    Hi Everyone,

    We just released Dogfight 2 over at Rock Solid Arcade. It's the sequel to our previous game Dogfight, but we've made many enhancements and added a lot of new mission types.

    I'd love to know what everyone thinks!

    It's really good. How does it earn you money?

    As much as I liked RoboKill, I like Dogfight 2.
    Just few more games and you'll enter the Saint Flash League along with Nitrome and DonutGames.

    Could you give us some insight on the way you achieve such amazing performance with Flash? E.g. BitmapData tricks? RedrawRegions?

    Brilliant game. The only thing that would make it better is some form of upgrade system and/or purchasing of new aircraft. Or maybe it's already in there but I just didn't get far enough?

    Yes - have to agree with the sentiments already expressed - a really enjoyable game.

    Great dynamics, nice graphics (love the parallax scrolling), a good difficulty learning curve and it definitely has the addictive element to it.

    Good work!

    Pretty sweet! My only preference would be if there were some sort of flight dynamics like slowing down and stalling if you climb too long or going overspeed and damaging your plane if you dive too long. But that would probably alienate casual players.
