Online multiplayer action that's "easily one of the best indie games I've ever encountered" according to Starcraft 2 man Chris Page.

Altitude defines a new genre of online multiplayer action with a diverse arsenal of planes, weapons, and perks, and game modes ranging from base destruction to plane ball (imagine Quidditch with a lot more explosions). An active international community organizes clans, participates in competitive leagues, and creates a steady stream of high-quality maps.

Says Chris Page, former professional gamer and lead balancer on Blizzard’s Starcraft 2:

“Altitude is a genuinely deep and rewarding multiplayer experience in the guise of an old-school arcade game. The basic gameplay is very accessible, yet contains enough nuance and depth to remain compelling for months. Easily one of the best indie games [or games period] I've ever encountered.”

To date, purchasers of Altitude average over 60 hours of play time (in-server, non-idle).

Game Modes:

1) Plane Ball – football with planes.

2) Team Base Destruction – intense battle to destroy the opposing team’s base; coordinated pushes and strategic loadout decisions turn the tide.

3) Demolition (similar to Counter-Strike bomb/defuse) – tactical dogfighting.

4) Team Deathmatch – just like you’d expect, with ally-proximity based respawns to keep your team together.

5) FFA – maximum mayhem dogfighting.

6) 1-life Deathmatch – slower, more deliberate pace – every kill and death is critical.

7) 1-life Team Base Destruction – for the hardcore crowd.
