Obviously a sequel to Flying Tigers, this game makes us the pilot of a hi-tech ship, known as "Flying Tiger". According to the story, you are fighting "techno terrorists" who have begun a sinister plot to destroy all the Flying Tigers. Whatever, let's just go shoot some planes!
Similar to Raptor, Flying Tigers II is a typical vertical-scrolling shoot 'em up, where you have to survive until end of level. Planes attack you relentlessly, and each four levels you get to fight several bosses - very powerful and strong planes. You can also come upon zeppelins of steel (don't ask), warships and active volcanoes. While you'll be flying over the sea most of the time, you can also encounter patches of land with ground installations of them; all of these can be blown up. During your mission, you'll find weapon upgrades (which also heal you a little). The yellow bonuses change the type of your main weapon (which is basically a machine gun), while the blue ones give you a secondary weapon - such as lasers, missiles or flaming napalm! You can shoot the bonuses to change the weapon contained within them. At the end of every level, you get bonus points for the planes and buildings you destroyed.
Flying Tigers 2 is a decent top-down shooter that is identical to its predecessor in every respect, except for new levels and enemies. If you have played the first game, you know what to expect: a vertical shooter set in the real world, with a myriad of enemy planes that look like clones of fighters from WW2. Fun for a while, but the lack of variety and power-ups push the game down to the barely above-average level. Smooth animations and good controls help, but not much. If you want a relatively easy shooter that you can while a few minutes with, then try Flying Tigers 2. Otherwise, it simply can't compete with other games in the genre, even fellow shareware games like Zone 66.
