    Help remembering a game name

    Been a while RPS people!

    So, a few months ago there was a very pretty looking game which looked interesting and I ignored because there was no way my brick of a PC could run it. Now I have a new PC, and I remember the look of the game but not at all what it was named. Help!
    So the things I remember about it are:
    • It was pretty
    • It involved flying fancy looking aircraft - I can't remember if they are airplanes/jetplanes or spacecraft
    • I believe the game itself was a fast-paced multiplayer 'arena-ish' shooter (i.e. defined matches rather than exploring a world)


    Any ideas?

    Strike Vector?

    Do you remember what the movement/gameplay was like? How sci fi was everything?

    edit: Dreadnought was also shown off a few months ago I think, not really fast paced though. Also it isn't out yet.

    Maybe War Thunder or World of Warplanes, I remember they did a review on warplanes but the comments were filled with how much RPS gets paid by wargaming.net to not review War Thunder then they did it. But I don't think those two are overly demanding on your PC but they do fly planes and have arena-ish matchmaking system.

    No problem, not sure if there is an active multiplayer community still though.

    I'll keep this one going

    Back in the 80s there was a Spectrum game where you had to destroy loads of enemies who appeared at spawners (it's not Gauntlet but that sort of idea) - you could shoot-out "doors" or "barriers" to control which way they/you could move etc.

    I've never found what than was called and I imagine it's a BIT more challenging ;0

    Ranarama?

    Sorry, don't really know much about Spectrum games.

    edit: maybe Into the Eagle's Nest, or Dandy?
