A short, different take on the shoot 'em up genre. Unique and worth a quick play.
Formation Flyers puts you in control of not just one, but five independent ships at the same time. You have a selection of various formations you can fly in, and you can switch between them on the fly.
That is the basis, and only selling point of Formation Flyers. It's not like Swarm Racer which used its formations as the basis for a game - this uses the formations as the only reason for the game.
And that's a shame. There is so much possibility which opens up at the thought of having rapidly changing formation of flyers in a vertically scrolling shoot 'em up. It's just not utilised well here. The levels are short and hard to lose, there is no unlockable content or even options. It's worth a look, though, to see the possibilities of the gameplay mechanic. I hope this gets utilised some ways down the line.
