While there are already a lot of flight simulator games available, Tiny Combat Arena is joining the fight with something different. The game offers a good balance between a simulator and a customizable air combat experience. It’s now available on Steam Early Access offered at 30% off until March 2.

In a post, developer Why485 shared that they released the wrong version when the game went live. That meant there were some fixes that needed to be done. But everything's in action and moving forward, here are some of the issues the team is looking into:

  • Mouse-free look controls.
  • Refining keyboard/mouse controls.
  • Smoothing out the rebinding screen experience.
  • Game-breaking bugs like infinite speed and Arena capturing being spotty.

The team went on to say that players can expect the roadmap containing the list of features and content. However, the team cautioned everyone not to expect too much as it's going to list only the essentials.

Tiny Combat Arena offers the fun of flying, close air support, and of course, dogfighting. The simulation elements added aren’t only there for realism but also for deep gameplay and engagement. The simulation is also the one that inspires the mechanics, allowing for a new range of tactics that players can explore.

Adding to the realism is the in-game database which gives players detailed statistics on vehicles, aircraft, and even weapons. The database also provides tactical guidance on how to approach different aircraft and respond to various threats.

The game has two main modes:

  • Quick Mission Builder
    • Jump in the action by quickly assembling different types of missions.
    • Players can choose to just stroll and enjoy the scenery or create a team vs. team dogfight.
  • Arena Mode
    • Plan your moves like picking objectives, identifying threats, and choosing which units to support.
    • It’s a war and what players do can affect the outcome.

Here are the minimum requirements for PC:

  • OS: Windows 10
  • Processor: x86, x64 architecture with SSE2 instruction set support
  • Memory: 1024 MB RAM
  • Graphics: DX10, DX11, DX12 capable
  • DirectX: Version 10
  • Storage: 1024 MB available space
