The bombs are back in town
“These sexy pilots love fast planes, big guns, and shooting T.O.O.L .out of the sky,” so claims a press packet for the upcoming Bombshells: Hell’s Belles for iOS. It’s a bold statement, no matter how you look at it. Are the pilots in question really sexy? How big are these guns? These are questions that I cannot yet answer, but hope to upon the game’s release.
I can’t claim to have ever been in the danger zone, much less the highway that leads to it. But the pilots of Bombshells: Hell’s Belles live in it. It is their world, and it is full of enemies looking to gun you (and, ostensibly, your best friend Goose) down at the first sign of weakness. As luck would have it, though, you’ll have access to a mighty arsenal of weaponry, not to mention the ability to request supply drops when needed. I wouldn’t feel too bad about using all of these guns and cannons to take out the enemy, either. I hear those guys are total T.O.O.L.s. If you don't believe me, check out Gun Bros, the game they originated in.
What’s an aerial battle if not a deadly dog-and-pony show for the folks on the ground? Players will be able to customize and combine their planes and weapons at the in-game workbench, resulting in a stronger arsenal and, hopefully, a prettier one. I mean, if you're going to be a “sexy pilot,” as the game promotes, I have to assume you want your plane to look good as well.
The game is currently available on the Canadian App Store, and Slide to Play is reporting that it will release worldwide in around 2-3 months. If you need something to bide your time with, I suggest putting on “Danger Zone” and shopping around online for the best pair of aviator glasses you can find. Make sure they're sexy!
