And they say small things amuse small minds? Never been more true!
Found an absolute gem in the iPhone App store the other day: Flight Control [iTunes link]. Hereâ€™s my go at a little review!
The UI is much smoother than Iâ€™ve seen on many iPhone games, simplistic menu options and tutorials make this game so easy to dive in to. The basic idea of the game is to guide planes onto a runway (you can probably see why I like it already!), whilst making sure they donâ€™t collide with each other. Itâ€™s harder than it sounds!
There are 4 types of aircraft in this version: light aircraft, helicopters, medium and large jets. All of which move at a slightly different speed â€“ the controllers nightmare! Iâ€™m sure nothing this drastic would occur in real life though (aircraft landing within split seconds of each other?!), or else Iâ€™d only be able to land 66 planes before killing someone!
The use of the touch-and-drag interface on the iPhone coupled with clever use of the on-screen graphics and onboard sound make the game extremely easy to use, it takes mere seconds to get started.
Overall, Iâ€™ve no regrets on spending 59p on this app, and I canâ€™t wait to see how it will be expanded on in future releases
P.S. I wanted to include some screenshots, but no matter how hard I try, the iPhone wonâ€™t let me take them off the internal memory 🙁
