The Dambusters ★★★★★ by Daisy moo moo - Version 1.4 - Mar 28, 2014 - This is a brilliant game love the graphics and flying my own Lancaster... Would have like some aircraft attacking but this is great.... If you love the Lancaster it's a must have game



Dam this is good ★★★★★ by Neil1287 - Version 1.4 - Dec 13, 2013 - Fantastic sound, graphics really good game play top top game. Only lacks cockpit view.



Fab ★★★★ by Marmite smooch - Version 1.2 - Sep 20, 2013 - Bought this earlier this year and has given me hours of play and frustration until I realised you could alter the sensitivity settings. Have fun



The Dambusters ★★★★★ by Spitfiremurphy - Version 1.2 - Aug 24, 2013 - Just great on my ipad 3G just so real every thing works don't take my word just buy it Worth the money any time thanks!!!!.



Fantastic ★★★★★ by Captainbecky - Version 1.2 - Aug 22, 2013 - Great app and game play would like more missions and maybe include take off and landing. Worth the money completed all after day 1 but still play it every so often as love the way it works does what it says on the tin bring on the updates with extras



The Dambusters ★★★★★ by Sybil the spitfire - Version 1.2 - Jun 18, 2013 - An awesome game! 70 years on we finally have something to show the every day person something along the lines of what those airmen faced on the 16/17th May 1943 as they completed this special low level raid. Nothing can compare to flying a real Lancaster bomber, but this is "Dam" close at this point in history. A brilliant and addictive game that you won't want to put down.... Even when you have breeched all three dams and returned your aircraft home! Andrew James Sollis (AJS)



Great little game ★★★★★ by bundeboys - Version 1.2 - Jun 8, 2013 - I loved it. Spent hours playing it. Great for a few quid.



Quote from Wg Cdr of 617 Sqn(2013)


OC 617


I consider myself extremely fortunate to be in command of a Royal Air Force squadron. For that squadron to be flying Tornado GR4, and for it to have such a glorious and distinguished history as 617 Squadron, puts me in a truly enviable position. To be able to follow in the footsteps of Gibson, Cheshire and all the other men who have had the honour to command the Dambusters is a great privilege indeed. The history of hard work, innovative and skilled bombing, and great precision in using force, is one that we continue to contribute to today in our operations over Afghanistan.


This anniversary application commemorates the skill, valour and mettle of those who have been proud to wear the name badge of a Dambuster, and you can rest assured that today’s generation of Dambusters go about their work with the pride, steely determination and esprit de corps of those who have gone before.

The Dambusters App offers an exciting way for all generations to learn more about the tenacious and daring raid undertaken by members of 617 Sqn.

Quote from Battle of Britain Memorial Flight:


The Royal Air Force Battle of Britain Memorial Flight takes great pride in acting as the national focus for remembrance of the bravery and sacrifice by members of the Service, including those involved on the Dambuster Raid in May 1943.


The Dambusters App offers an exciting way for all generations to learn more about the tenacious and daring raid undertaken by members of 617 Sqn.

Quote from theWg Cdr of 617 Sqn(2012)


The Dambusters App offers an authentic experience that gives people an opportunity to interact with the legendary Operation Chastise raid.


The raid, performed by the forebears of my Squadron, was conducted by 19 Lancaster bombers to attack the Möhne, Eder and Sorpe dams, using Barnes Wallis’ revolutionary bouncing bomb, in May 1943.


The daring and innovative nature of the operation has earned 617 Squadron a unique place in history.

Japan: d(^_^o) ★★★★★ by わん!わん‼ - Version 1.0 - Jun 9, 2012 - I like this game



USA: Awesome game ★★★★★ by Drumming Taco - Version 1.0 - Jun 7, 2012 - Really addicting game. Graphics are great and tilt control really makes it fun.



Australia: Awesome! ★★★★★ by Minskie - Version 1.0 - Jun 16, 2012 - I can't put this down. Very addictive and has captured the feel and atmosphere of a night bombing raid (with a twist)! Well done guys. keep em coming! Nice work.



Canada: Freaking Amazing!!!! ★★★★★ by D.B.Walker - Version 1.0 - Jun 8, 2012 - Congratulations to creating a stellar app with history and great controls. My ID is a riff on Diana Barnato Walker MBE, and I am a total fan girl now of your work. The music from the movie and the Wing Commander's voice add huge depth and are terrific. (I highly reccommend the Battle of Britian app if you collect and play this type of game). Could you guys do a Pathfinders app with the legendary De Haviland Mosqito? With combined fighter/bomber missions? In 2009 I saw VR-A KB726 flying east-west along Dundas street in Toronto after a refit and cried my eyes out. Check out YT for some great video of the Mynarski Memorial Lancaster flying over Niagara Falls Ontario. The Few.



Bombs away! ★★★★★ by by Ceri B - Version 1.0 - Jun 19, 2012 - Exciting gameplay, great graphics all in all 5 stars!



The Dambusters ★★★★★ by Cosmoandcleo - Version 1.0 - Jun 11, 2012 - I'm a Dambusters geek. Was very wary of this app, but it is fabulous. Currently still on the Easy level and am loving learning as I go. Blown up Mohne and Eder, not managed Soper, but then again, neither did Gibson. Very very addictive. Easy to learn, simple low flying required...probably not one for 'serious gamers' but great fun and tells the kids the story. Just waiting for the 'Goner' and 'N/Digger' updates. Only complaint, voice over not 'pukka' enough.



The Dambusters ★★★★★ by Ken boy 1950 - Version 1.0 - Jun 7, 2012 - This game is brilliant best ever put your head phones and take in the action it stops the wife nagging Get use to the practice runs over the dams and you will soon get better more games like this what about a decent tank battle app for us oldies ?



Great app and very challenging ★★★★★ by ChrisF-Chip - Version 1.0 - Jun 7, 2012 - I have settled for running easy level and love this game. When I'm feeling confident ill give hard a go, but it's an addictive game and brilliant to end the day in the tube bus and train.



Richard ★★★★★ by Rorks - Version 1.0 - May 28, 2012 - This is my first review, I have quite a few games and have come to realise that the good ones are all pretty much a similar standard. So I haven't felt the need to write a review; Until now. Dambusters scores 5 Stars on every level. The attention to detail could only have come from a team who really wanted to excel. Well done and thank you Hyperspace Ltd and I will be waiting for your next winner.



Dambusters ★★★★★ by - Version 1.0 - May 28, 2012 - There's a real tension as you approach the right spot to drop the bomb. This app teaches you the value of staying calm... very addictive!



Direct hit! ★★★★★ by Tim3822 - Version 1.0 - May 27, 2012 - Really impressed by this game. Attention to detail is excellent and really puts you in the pilots seat. Can seem to put it down trying to blow the Sorpe dam on extreme is rather tricky! Being a pilot myself I can't begin to think how they must have felt with all that AAA zipping passed. The manual is great, most concise one I've seen in a while that includes the big budget AAA titles. In all I advise anyone to get this if for nothing more than a history lesson! Hope to see more games from this developer, maybe the Operation Jericho?



Fab! ★★★★★ by Bouncy Bomber - Version 1.0 - May 26, 2012 - A great game! But be warned - with its excellent graphics and music its very addictive. A lot of thought and effort has gone into producing this game, the quality is amazing, and it's an app! Eleven out of ten.



Mr gibson ★★★★★ by scousewarrior - Version 1.0 - May 25, 2012 - Best game I've played. Its a British game through an through. Am hooked brought up on the movie as a kid. This takes me back. And shows how hard it must of been to get there and get back in 1943.



Dambuster heaven ★★★★★ by 1234queenie - Version 1.0 - May 24, 2012 - I dont normally write reviews but had to on this one, congratulations a decent flying game with a real feel of what our boys went through and how dangerous it was, once again congratulations!!!



Smoothmover ★★★★★ by Markkeygrip1 - Version 1.0 - May 22, 2012 - This is the best ,this is great,I can't put it down!



Dambusters by Hyperspace ★★★★★ by Ceri Lia - Version 1.0 - May 21, 2012 - If you have any interest in Military Aircraft of WWII or just think you would like to smash the "Dams" you have to try this! Realistic flight through the terrain approach to the dams. Plenty of skill levels just incase you think your getting too good! Excellent - 5 star!!



Tally ho ★★★★★ by Mikeyb001_0 - Version 1.0 - May 20, 2012 - We've had loads of fun with this app, my kids are fascinated by the story now. The detail is amazing, the music and feel of the control really get the hairs on the back of your neck standing on end. You feel like you're there. This one of the best apps in the AppStore for detail and controls (flying a Lancaster bomber by tilting your phone is fantastic). You and your family will love it and the kids can learn something too. Well done.



Chocks away! ★★★★★ by Spankthemonkey - Version 1.0 - May 19, 2012 - There is a really good atmosphere 2 this game and it feels like a heavy lumbering bomber. PTN can we have a option 2 be able 2 move the bomb release button 2 the other side of the screen? And how about 4 future updates adding the tirpitz mission?



The Dambusters ★★★★★ by CookieAb - Version 1.0 - May 19, 2012 - This app is fantastic, the level of detail and effort the developer has undertaken is unsurpassed. You actually feel you've been transported back through history. The simulation is amazing. Well done!



Buster ★★★★★ by Basso10688 - Version 1.0 - May 18, 2012 - This is one of my favorite war movies of all time. And i am a big flight sim fan so when i saw this app i just had to have it only problem being they said it only works on 4s and above a real downer. So i decided to take the plunge and download it on to my iphone 4 works fine no lag smooth as silk. Great simulation guys well done.
