Editors' Review


Flight Control is an attractive, addictive game in which you play an air traffic controller guiding an endless armada of incoming aircraft to safe landings (you hope!) at a crowded airport. Flight Control makes great use of the iOS touch interface, as you use your finger to trace a trajectory for each approaching craft, sending jets, seaplanes, and helicopters to various runways and landing pads. The controls are incredibly simple and intuitive, which contributes to Flight Control's surprisingly rich, devilishly addictive gameplay.

The game starts out at a leisurely pace, but as aircraft enter from every edge of the screen with increasing frequency, the sky quickly becomes filled with aircraft, all traveling at different speeds with overlapping trajectories. One of the first big iOS hits, Flight Control has only improved with age, adding many maps of varying difficulties as well as some interface improvements (such as a fast-forward button) and a few gameplay wrinkles on some maps, like changing wind conditions that close certain runways and an occasional emergency-landing plane that you have to avoid. Most significantly, Flight Control has added multiplayer, on the same network (over Wi-Fi or Bluetooth) or using GameCenter, with optional voice chat. The GameCenter games aren't perfect, and you face the usual problems of match-finding and opponents dropping out, but overall multiplayer is an excellent addition to Flight Control.

"Incredibly additcting, simply and fun game!"

What a great game!


More visually stimulating courses could be added, but this is just wish list - the game is fine as is.


It takes about 10 seconds to figure out how to play Flight Control, but it's impossible to put it down once you start. You just have to play to see how addicting it is. Once the game gets going, it can get crazy quickly if you don't pay attention. So far, I've had no crashes or glitches in the application and the install file is fairly small.
