Could be better
Enjoyable at first. Great catchy music. However, your high score is always based on the maximum number of planes landed before two of them collide,mand the game is over. Absurdly, there is applause when this happens!
The problem with the game is you can never seem to win - all you are doing is avoiding the inevitable collision between planes. The number of planes on screen increases so rapidly after a while that it is impossible to prevent them crashing into each other - at least for this mortal. So while there is some enjoyment in the skill required to route the landing paths, this is always snuffed out as the plane numbers become unrealistic. Potentially a great game, but with fundamentally flawed gameplay.
Addicted Even Better on iPad
I was addicted to this app on iPhone. Now I have an iPad and this app is even better with more runways and more plane types making it harder. Only thing I would wish for is the ability to fast forward faster through lower levels, as high speed is still slow at the beginnings of a new game for advanced players. Great app though. Love it.
what a fantastic game.
Simple in design, yet cunning and deceptive in it's ability to trap you just when you think it's all under control.
I am also amazed at the way the authors have perfectly created a 1950's/60' feel to the whole thing along with a "corny" yet somehow very cool background tune ala Aka Bilk.
Well done Firemint !
