Prepare your crew for their most dangerous mission yet and go chocks away for a sky-bound expedition in this strategic survival sim, Bomber Crew.
Choose your Crew!
Train and personalise your own Bomber Crew. Procedurally-generated names, skills and back stories means a unique experience for everyone, but be careful, as death is permanent.
Immersive flight simulation!
Carefully manage everything from fuel, ammo, hydraulics and more in your very own physics-based Bomber. Make it yours with a wide array of nose art and liveries, or design your own with the simple to use in-game tool.
Fast paced strategy!
Each mission is a high-risk expedition where danger comes from every angle. Enemy fighters, flak guns, poor weather, low oxygen and an array of other perilous dangers await when the wheels are up.
Preparation is key for a successful mission. Tag enemy fighters before they reach you, make sure your destination is marked but most importantly, make sure you have the right team for the job. On a WW2 bomber, every role is essential for victory!

This is a really fun , challenging simulator. You manage a bomb crew of several guys. You carry out war missions. It involved both combat and management. There is no option to pause , so you have to carry out all actions in real time. This makes the game really challenging and frantic. It is one of the most challenging simulation games I've ever played. It gets frustrating that there is no quick save or checkpoint during missions , so you need to replay the whole mission if you die. I had a lot of fun overall though.
Bomber Crew has some similarities to FTL, you will need to customize and upgrade your bomber while maintaining a crew to control it. You will have pilots, engineers, navigators, and gunners that will improve over time and that can be customized along with the plane. On each mission you will have to locate your targets and spot enemy planes for your gunners to shoot down while managing your flight path, altitude, having crew members grab more ammo, put out fires, repair damaged parts of the plane, handle fuel, move wounded crew members to a place where they can heal, as well as ordering bail outs and emergency landings. Your plane's appearance can be customized in addition to having different parts and killed crew members will get a little memorial spot when you make it back.
Bomber crew is more or less FTL: Faster Than Light, only instead of being in space with the mission to contact federation, facing obstacles like drones and wacky aliens, you're controlling a World War II bomber. Sounds simple, right? Well, while graphics are simplistic and cute (kind of minecraft-spired), with as simple sound, what kills this game is the lack of polish to the gameplay. While gameplay by itself is not that bad, what kills it is whole micro-management. There is nothing wrong when the game tries to be complex or not hold your hand, but there is a difference between that and what they did here. In this game, your crew won't do anything by themselves, they won't even shoot one bullet without you doing it personally. Now imagine controlling 7 crew people like that and it makes you wonder why you even need them, when you're doing the whole job. I mean, in FTL, you just assigned roles for the crew, from time to time moving them to medbay or other room to suffocate aliens that board your ship. Even with that game was still a challenge and fun, here you must control everything personally, even though you have a crew, making them useless. Also, no active pause, meaning you have to control all 7 stations/people on the fly. Good luck with that! The issue of the game wanting you to do too much stuff could've been easly fixed by active pause, but for now there is none of that nor there are any plans as of now to do it, so for now the game is annoyance, mostly because there is good game underneath it, but this micromanagement makes it artificially hard. For now, the game is more annoying than fun, because of how unfairly hard it is. Wait for the info about active pause or grab it when on sale. For now, it is not really worth it, because the game might steal your heart, but it may turn out that you will hate this game in the end.
Bomber Crew is a great strategic combat game with super fun gameplay, unique and lovely visuals and characters, lots of challenging missions, great atmosphere and also a very nice composed music for the game which makes you delve more into the game's world ! As you can see from the game's title, it's all about bombing your designated target successfully using your bombers and its lovely crew and try to get back home safely. this game really surprised me and I can't recommend it enough to everybody, because it's just super fantastic and totally worth the price!
