Great game but...
There are a lot of issues with accuracy... For example: the population of a city doesn't determine what types of planes can fly into it (Dubai has about 2 million people and they have the most a380s of any airport in the world flying through DXB. DXB also handles 52 million passengers a year- so where is the airport!)
Also, you are missing many cities with massive airports (Charlotte, Nashville, Dubai) and include cities that don't really have much of an airport. Also, a city with 3 million people is a HUGE city. It makes no sense why they should get almost as many jobs as a city with 100,000 would.
I do however love how generous you guys are with bux and how you can convert them to coins. I like the airplane names and how you can get little information things about each city. It's a really creative game but you need to update! Nimblebit doesn't do anything beyond a few minor bug fixes.
This game, just like many other nimblebit games, is very fun and enjoyable. A second thing all nimblebit games have in common is the lack of updates and new features in games. I know that the people that created this game are smart enough and creative enough to make new features and aspects of this game and other nimblebit games.
A second thing is I would be very pleased to find is a new game. I find all of your games very enjoyable, especially pocket planes and pocket trains. The next game should be pocket boats. I know you have heard this before but I firmly believe that nimblebit should try and make a new boat based game. Like I said before, you guys are smart and creative and have the capability to make a new game with different aspects and features then before.
Thank you in advance.
Good, with big and small issues
Pocket Planes is a faster paced game than Tiny Tower and has you bring planes with cargo and people to local cities and eventually cities around the globe. You get to choose where you start(Europe, Africa, Japan, South America, America, etc). Some major cities are missing, although this might be intentional to balance gameplay and not make players have obvious choices for where to start. The game is not as appealing and Pocket Trains but is still fun and offers more availability for getting around the world. Bux are not as common as in Pocket Trains, however, making it a more challenging title. It is not as challenging as the most popular title, Tiny Tower. Recommended for people who like Pocket Trains over Tiny Tower.
