You take the role of a pilot in WWII codenamed 'Blue Dragon'. You have just returned home from a successful raid and have to cross enemy territory to get back to your ship and return home.

You can collect points by destroying enemy planes, tanks, boats and soldiers on your trip back to your ship. You can collect bonus points by landing your plane on the deck of your ship... which is harder than it sounds! If you overshoot or miss the ship you must eject or you will miss your ride home!


Controls

Left Mouse Button- Increase Altitude (Let go to decrease)
Right Mouse Button - Shoot

Up/Down Arrow - Raise/Lower Landing Wheel
Enter - Eject From Plane
Space - Drop Bomb

With each level that goes by your minimum speed will increase, making targeting difficult.

**Please refer to the readme for more info**

Blue Dragon also comes with an online highscore system for that extra bit of fun!

Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did making it! Special thanks to Noodle, Hagartech and Jon - Smegsoft for beta testing.

the controls are unintuitive
 
Posted by Matt [cash money klikaz] 4th December, 2003

Posted by Matt [cash money klikaz] 4th December, 2003

Looks great, the background's abit plain though.

i get an error..
 
Posted by Shme (Stupid Liar) 5th December, 2003

bastard! this is almost the same as the game i was making. only I made less cartoony gfx. I h8 you.
 
Posted by Steve Harris 5th December, 2003

1. Yes I bought the gfx from Kris at Game Warlords and he's even credited in the game... This is because I can't draw to save my life. 2. Yes there's one level that gets faster and faster, this is meant to be an arcade game hence the repetetiveness 3. Pardon Me Mr. Three: what error are you getting?
 
Posted by Assault Andy 5th December, 2003

Nice Gfx, gameplay is good but painstakingly difficult at times. Very frustrating to play.
 
Posted by Steve Harris 5th December, 2003

Oh and thanks for the front page Mr Clause

"wtf do you crash on a flagpole???" Its a plane from WWII its small and not very robust... wtf do you think is going to happen when it hits a flagpole... dumbass
 
Posted by Gaspy Conana 5th December, 2003

Weren't you zio's programmer a while back when he was working on the old Legends of Xandor? Just thought you might be cuz your name is also steve...
 
Posted by Andy H 5th December, 2003

Nice, graphics and how you've used them are perfect. I especially like the little details when you get to the water. Could not land though :) A challenging game. The only things I could think of to improve this game further would be to: 1) Make some difficulty settings - easier = more responsive for climb/descending and less harsh gravity, normal = how it is now 2) Make some extra levels and use settings from other areas. Having a larger world to explorer in this way would give this game extra longlivity. 3) Make a screencam video showing how to land :) Top game though.

Necro: No unfortunatly I wasn't, I wouldn't have minded the job tho :p Andy H: Ermmm wow thanks dude, I never expected praise from someone with a rep like yours ^_^

"Its a plane from WWII its small and not very robust... wtf do you think is going to happen when it hits a flagpole... dumbass" Tut tut, thats not very nice now, is it?
 
Posted by Steve Harris 5th December, 2003

lol, well after 3 negative comments by matt I was getting a bit peeved :)
 
Posted by Kris 5th December, 2003

YES HE BOUGHT THE GFX FROM ME ... NOW I HAVE INITIATED A $2 PER PLAY LOYALTY FEE! Pay up! :P
 
Posted by David Newton (DavidN) 5th December, 2003

Reviewed - it's good for a while, but the repetitivity tarnishes it.
 
Posted by Kristofor Durrschmidt 5th December, 2003

WOW! Good use of my graphics! Excellent job, nice to see them put to good use. Pay no attention to the other Kris lol he is an IMPOSTER! O_o j/k
 
Posted by Matt [cash money klikaz] 5th December, 2003

"Its a plane from WWII its small and not very robust... wtf do you think is going to happen when it hits a flagpole... dumbass" well, dumbass, this is not a very realistic game to begin with. so, why must you be asinine in the game design? i would assume that the flagpole would be off to the side, not in the fucking runway.
 
Posted by -_darkman_- 5th December, 2003

If I didn't have to use the mouse for control then this would be really good
 
Posted by Matt [cash money klikaz] 5th December, 2003

see, someone else agrees.
 
Posted by Smeggy 6th December, 2003

Calm down you lot, jeez its like being back in a playground at school..
 
Posted by Steve Harris 6th December, 2003

I know talk about going over the top... jeezus
 
Posted by Steve Harris 6th December, 2003

Thanks Kristofor :) Oh and thanks to WCB too for the review, pretty fair imo... i'll consider making it into a full game. Never noticed the error with the logo though :(
 
Posted by Sun Ce 6th December, 2003

Good coding, but way too fricking hard. I'm an impatient person, so I couldn't keep playing. I would recommend making the plane a bit easier to control up and down, but it's your game.

:'(
 
Posted by Keatonian 6th December, 2003

I like this, its fun. I like getting REALLY close to the ground and gunning down the idiots trying to run. My highest is about 600 I think.
 
Posted by Tigerworks 7th December, 2003

Argh, how can you crash in to the CLOTH of the flag?! :D
 
Posted by Steve Harris 7th December, 2003

yeah I know, its something thats gotta be fixed... ill upload a patch
 
Posted by Steve Harris 7th December, 2003

heres the patch in case any one is interested... the actual game has been updated as well for any new downloaders http://www.newklear.com/steve/games/bd/bdpatch.zip (113 kb's)
 
Posted by AfterStar 7th December, 2003

This game is "EVIL" I managed to beat Level 10 and had a score of 12.000+ and when it got me to the next level,there was no plane nothing at all,the game just stuck there with a tank in the middle..... You should fix this!And make it continue the levels,same difficulty as level 10(level11,12,13....level 100) Its a VERY VERY easy game when you find out how to pass it by,i could keep playing and get 100.000points but...the game has only 10 Levels in which you are obligated to crash otherwise it will not continue if you win level 10 and furthermore LOSE your Score! Way to play it:Always fly at FULL SPEED,always fly above close to the screen limit above,always fire and watch out for the 1 and only plane that's threatening your high position(which comes after the first POLE...) and then throw all your bombs! When you get close to the Carrier don't bother landing,just hit ENTER ENTER after the "LAND HERE" signal to eject!
 
Posted by Steve Harris 7th December, 2003

damn another bug... thanks AfterStar
 
Posted by AfterStar 7th December, 2003

Another...well maybe not a bug but is that you can submit the same highscore over and over...! For instance i got a score of 10700 and i could just click twice(which i did) to add twice my highscore =)!You should fix this by adding an event "When (in score frame)sumbit button is pressed return to main frame! "
 
Posted by Steve Harris 7th December, 2003

OK have fixed all the bugs... download the latest patch here:- http://www.newklear.com/steve/games/bd/bdpatch2.zip (144 kb's)

The graphics where RIPPED from a game designer who visits this site, he owns www.gamewarlords.com and his name is Kristopher.

The Nazis had grey uniforms. Just a small historical correction. D'oh:D
 
Posted by Steve Harris 1st January, 2004

The game doesn't say what country you are fighting for/against ;)
 
Posted by Jason Orme 30th January, 2004

Its fun, just abit repeatative though.
 
Posted by Tomssuli 20th September, 2004

The idea reminds me of an old Amiga game 'Wings of Fury' ...Must download this to try if it's as good :)
 
Posted by Pete Nattress 22nd December, 2004

"The game doesn't say what country you are fighting for/against" sure, but the nazi emblems on tanks and the english flag on the landing craft are SOMETHING of a giveaway ;)
 
Posted by Steve Harris 30th December, 2004

Yeah I know XD
