Customer Reviews

Fantastic game

A great improvement on the original flight control, with clever new ideas that make it feel like a very different game although it uses the same basic control mechanism.

The in-app purchase is overwhelming initially and pretty depressing due to the huge cost of some items. (about £10 to unlock one level alone). But if you can ignore it - and you don't have to use it to enjoy the game - then the game is great.

However the lives are a dumb idea. Games last too long and they add nothing except tedium.

I don't know...,

Take a brilliant idea (FireMint's original "Flight Control"), give it a space-age makeover, add a whole load of fabulous power-ups and gizmos, and you somehow end up with something that's at best a little bit mediocre.

Perhaps if the bots and coins and stuff weren't there right from the start?

Or perhaps if there was some kind of logic to all the silly things the various spaceships do... like why would any spaceship, on its final approach to docking, suddenly speed up, or leave a trail of mini spaceships behind it, or split into two?

Perhaps I'm overthinking this, but the original is just more enjoyable for me.


Very nice iteration on the original flight control. ruined by the implmentation of In App Purchase (IAP) of upto £35. Leveling up pushes these buy it now optioons on you., but still a good game, if the IAP is changed could be a great 5* game. new update apears to have changed levelling up to craft landed but will need to unlock for free to see if it works this way.
Controls are good - more of the same basically but with improved complexity of ships that split, fire out smaller pods, etc.
