Finding a game that will entertain you for hours on end is not always easy. The number of games in iOS is so large that it ends up being difficult to find one that is worthwhile . If you find yourself in this situation, try HAWK Freedom Squadron. An arcade of ships that you will use to spend hours in industrial quantities.
A little game for iOS with a bit of history
I admit I have a weakness for the vertical ship games. They are played with the iPhone in this position and allow them to be played comfortably in any position. On the bus, subway, car and also lying on the couch or bed. HAWK Freedom Squadron fits this profile perfectly. Although it does it differently than others.
The game is free with integrated shopping, but wait! Before you grunt with disappointment, you should know that in the months I’ve been playing it I haven’t paid once . It’s true that if I did, the progress would be faster, but it’s not necessary to enjoy it to the fullest.

First of all, you need to know that this game has a little bit of history. Not too much, but enough to go through mission after mission. Here don’t expect any big storytelling news , as it is a typical game of good versus bad. A highly evil country wants to dominate the world and only you can prevent that.
But you’re not alone. You have a handful of pilots capable of putting the autocratic empire in air check. The game is currently composed of two chapters of about 120 missions each. You have to survive each mission to move on to the next, with the added bonus that every ten missions you have to collect a certain number of stars to move on to the next phase.
HAWK has intermediate and end of phase managers, with varying degrees of difficulty. The truth is that advancing at first is easy, but then it becomes difficult to gather those stars and get through the phases. Luckily, you’re not alone in fighting in the air.
Cooperative Missions around the world
HAWK Freedom Squadron features co-operative missions with players from all over the world. This game mode supports the main story , making it much easier to overcome each mission. Especially when your partner has a better prepared ship than yours.
At first, you prefer to manage alone. You don’t need anyone. You improve your ship, adding bots allies that fire alongside you and optimizing your weaponry (more on this now). But it’s inevitable that you’ll run into a wall of difficulty if you don’t work on your levels. That’s where you’ll have to turn to your online companions .

As we said, HAWK has a ship upgrade system and bots . Luckily, it’s not too complicated as there is a button where the optimal one-touch armament and defense is equipped, avoiding hours and hours of trial and error . As an added bonus, you can merge weapons of the same level to obtain superior equipment.

I have reached approximately level 90 of 120 of the first chapter without paying any expansion, not without effort. It’s true that there is a limit to how many games you can play in a row using a virtual fuel system that you can buy, but I don’t see the need for that.
The shopping system within the app is more evident when you play in cooperative mode, with users with impossible level ships . That said, if you want to be entertained it shouldn’t be too tempting for you. The only problem I find with this game is that you need an online connection to play it. It shouldn’t be a day-to-day problem, but if you’re thinking of spending many hours on a plane without coverage, you’d better think about another game.
