What is the experience of Tiny Combat Arena?
Tiny Combat Arena is a labor-of-love combat flight simulator that aims to strike the perfect balance between a simulator and an approachable, customizable, air combat experience. All executed in a stylized look representing a fictional Cold War-era conflict.
Sim-lite combat flight model
Tiny Combat Arena is all about the fun factor of flying, dogfighting, and close air support. Simulation elements are added to the game in service of creating engaging and deep gameplay, never just for the sake of realism. Easy to learn mechanics, such as knowing that firing a missile from high altitude will boost its range, create a new range of tactics for you to explore.
You are in charge
It's your job to arm your Harrier (the first plane available). Missiles, cannons, bombs; choose your specific loadout for every mission.
Quick Mission Builder
Tiny Combat Arena lets you jump in and fly by quickly assembling various missions.
You can just have a placid stroll around some beautiful scenery or create missions with dogfights, strike objectives, and ground units to support.
Plan your moves on the strategic map; pick objectives, identify threats and choose which units to support and where to make a difference.
There is a real war going on around you and you will actively participate with perceivable results (or lack of!).
Detailed and useful database
The in-game database is there not only to give the players detailed statistics on vehicles, aircraft, and weapons but to also give guidance on how to approach different tactical situations."
