Air Sports is a group of sports in Wii Sports Resort that take place in the sky above Wuhu Island and Wedge Island. The sports features three minigames, which are Island Flyover, Skydiving and Dogfight.
The goal is simple: link up with the other skydivers to form groups of five, then pose for a photograph where you can earn 1 point for every skydiver in your group, and another point for each one that's facing the camera. Eventually you'll see a meter displaying the distance you have left to skydive until you form the final formation. Fly through the rings and the final photograph will be taken.
The player's skydiver is controlled directly by the movements of the Wii Remote. To fall slower, hold the Wii Remote flat. To fall faster, tilt it straight down. Tilt the remote in any other direction to move around. Once you've linked up with other skydivers, rotate the group by spinning the remote.
- The first photograph is taken from the viewpoint of the television, so make sure the Miis in your skydiving group are all facing toward the screen.
- The second photograph is taken from the viewpoint of the skydiving photographer, so rotate the Miis to face her, not the screen!
- During the final formation, flip everyone in your group onto their backs for the final photograph. This earns you many bonus points.
|Highfive||Make a photo with other 4 Miis with a visible face linked up with you.||Catch and link up with 4 other Mii characters and make sure everyone's face is visible when the camera snaps. Twist the Wii Remote around to get everyone to face the camera.|
|For the Birds||Take a photo with one ore more hawks in it.||Take a photo with a bird in it. Hawks are often seen flying just above formation altitude. If you're lucky, a hawk might fly by just as the camera snaps!|
|Friends in High Place||Catch 29 Miis during the final dive.||Catch at least 29 Mii characters during your dive, then join them for the final formation and have a picture taken. Even if you catch more than 29 Mii characters, 30 people is the biggest formation you can get.|
|Shy Camera||If you don't manage to catch anybody on your dive, the photographer will come out from behind the camera for a special shot.||Apparently, if you don't manage to catch anybody on your dive, the photographer will come out from behind the camera for a special shot.|
|200-point Dive||Requirement: get a score of 200 or more points.||Get a score of 200 or more. You'll need to make sure everyone's face is visible to get the most bonus points|
Except for the collection of Stamps, there really is no objective to Island Flyover besides exploring the island from the air. The principal goal of the minigame is collect all the 80 iPoints by flying toward it, adding it to your list of locations.
The plane is controlled by the motion of the Wii Remote, meaning that to go left you turn the remote left, to go up you point the remote toward the ceiling, etc. Jerk the remote toward the television for a short boost of speed, or hold to cut the engines. Press to fire your Balloons Blaster to pop Balloons. Press to fire your Flare if you're lost; Miguel will then fire his flare, allowing you to see where he is.
In base precise number of iPoints collected, the player will unlock some features.
iPoints to collect
|Balloons on the Wuhu Island||10|
|Double Balloons Blaster-Plane||30|
Lights for the night
|Two seaters Plane||60|
|The face of the player's Mii on The Whale Shark||70|
|A house built on the Private Island||80|
|Island Hopper||Visit any iPoint on Wedge Island.||Wedge Island is the large island a little way away from the main island, where the golf courses are located.|
|Pop Frenzy||Pop 150 Balloons in the course of one flight.||This includes balloons on planes or vehicles and small balloons released from larger ones.|
|Follow That Plane||Follow Miguel's Guide Plane around the island for at least three minutes.||Watch the smoke trail left by Miguel's Plane. It changes color while you are following him. If the player fires a flare by pressing , Miguel will respond with a gold-colored flare.|
|Wuhu Tour Guide||Collect all the iPoints in the daytime, evening, and night.||There are 80 locations, with new information for each time of day. That's 240 iPoints in total!|
|Balloonatic||Pop every white balloon at all times of day.||Once popped, white balloons will be a different color the next time you play. Balloons on planes or vehicles and small balloons released from larger ones don't count for this stamp.|
In this two-player face-off, each player has a large balloon attached to the back of his or her plane indicating how many times you can be shot before the balloon pops. You start off with 20 points, and can get up to 30 points. You can also lose points if the balloon hits something (for example, a building), and you'll lose half your points if you crash. Periodically more balloons will appear at a marked location, earning you 10 additional points if you fly through them.
- If your flying skills are good, try to lose your opponent or make them crash by flying between buildings or in caves.
- If you're down to a single balloon and you're being chased by your opponent, crash into the ground! Doing so won't take away your last balloon, and you'll be out of danger...for now.
As Dogfight is solely a multiplayer game, there are no stamps.
