Ratings and Reviews
Re: good game
I had written a review before for this game but wanted to revise it. I’ve loved this game since I was quite young. It probably is the only good plane/airline tycoon game for free on the App Store today. It’s easy to catch on to, it’s not complex under any circumstances. It’s just flying from city to city moving product and people.
The reason why I’m not giving this game 4 or 5 stars is because it still feels lacking in a sense. There should be more cities included in the game. I feel like certain countries are completely left out of the game for no apparent reason. Also, the game after a while gets somewhat boring after playing it for a certain amount of time, it gets repetitive. If there were some micromanaging aspects to the game other then changing your aircraft’s color then I think it could maybe improve that a bit. I also think that it takes far too long to get medium and long range aircraft on the market. The game is based around a rank system, the higher your rank, the better planes you get. The problem lies in the fact that it takes far to long to get up to the required rank to get a decent aircraft. Don’t get me wrong if you enjoy grinding out for a plane and gaining that satisfaction, then this is the game for you, personally I’m not that kinda guy.
All in all this game was great for its time, just wish it got a few new tweaks and mechanics to spice up the gameplay
More Friendly Interaction
I am by no means any bot far ahead in the game, but it is already apparent to me what things I desire that are lacking here. I see that we can add friends, and I have done so. I see that we can gift items to friends, that's wonderful. You can represent the same team in global contest. But it would be really great if you could see your friend's planes on your own map, or if you could manage your added friend's flights while they are away. This doesn't have to be an absolute feature, perhaps you could have additional personalization settings to disallow this kind of behavior. The only issue is that there is very little in the way of teamwork options. I don't want to feel alone with a friends list full of names, I want to feel like there is the option for tangible and active teamwork in a fashion that helps every party involved.
Alas, this is my only complaint thus far, it is a wonderful game and I am still enjoying the features it does have. I would love to see the developers revisit this game and bring in more potential for its players.
Legendary Game Going Out With a Bang?
This game was and still is one of the best airline tycoon games out on the market. Unfortunately, it seems NimbleBit has left it alone, while other games like Tiny Tower and it's new city game (can't remember the title) are being updated all the time. I hope that NimbleBit realizes the amount of people that still play this game and hope for an update. If NimbleBit isn't going to update the game anymore, could we at least get one final mega update consisting of new planes, airports, and more customizable options. Maybe for the airport you could customize your gate to increase appeal and increase customers based on appeal. Also adding different ways to get money or giving more money per flight. If Pocket Planes is going to be left untouched for the rest of it's days, could we, the players, get one more mega update to give the game a longer enjoyment time. Thanks!!!
P.S.-Happy 5th anniversary Pocket Planes!!!
