Mario Airship Battle takes place in the skies (duh). Mario must destroy all his enemies and go for the high score. There is a wide variety of enemies to battle and some will come from above, some will fly straight at you, and still others will have vehicles on the ground beneath you and shoot from below. You can grab power ups for your weapon as you play. Bullet bills, green bullet bills, etc.. These will shoot in different ways and give you unique combat advantages to help you succeed.
