Gameplayedit

Tower City,18 the stage that killed Propeller Arena's release

Propeller Arena can be roughly described as "Quake in the skies": it is not a typical flight simulator, but a series of quick dog fight deathmatches in rather limited areas,19 in a way similar to a multiplayer first-person shooter

The game has four modes: the main game, Championship, which is a sequence of dogfights; Quick Battle, a single dogfight; Training Arena, a number of training missions and minigames; and Network, the online mode Beating the game and the training missions unlocks extra characters and levels

The game also supported the Dreamcast rumble pack

Soundtrackedit

The game's soundtrack, all consisting of punk rock, was prepared by both "branches" of Sega: a Japanese team Sachio Ogawa and Tomoya Koga had 13 songs composed and produced in-house, while an American team arranged a deal with the Fat Wreck Chords label17 to license nine songs from the bands Consumed, Zero Down, No Use for a Name, Mad Caddies, and Rise Against2021 Some of Sega's original songs were remixed as instrumental versions and reused in their 2006 sports game Virtua Tennis 322
