A nice update to Harbor Master!
Like Harbor Master, this is a scheduling game where you must drag routes for ever-increasing numbers of relentlessly cute aircraft to their matching colored airfields. Unlike Harbor Master, you can also play it coop and head to head. Planes vary in size and speed. Occasionally emergency planes plow through your traffic pattern with a route that you can't change.
Everyone whines about having to pay for the Rewind feature, but after trying it in Harbor Master I wouldn't really use it anyway. Why, you may ask?
I find that trying to rewind and jump back in tends to result in another quick death. This is because you resume with that ton of aircraft already on-screen that killed you, so you don't get a chance to re-orient yourself to the load and pace that, by definition, you couldn't handle in the first place.
Thus, I don't see Rewind as useful unless it either cleared the screen before resuming or you had infinitely many of them (at which point you might as well get a slide show instead of a real-time game).
Still A Great Game
This was the first game I put on my iPhone back in 2008 and I still play it today on my all my phones and iPads. It's simple and fun, exciting and addictive. Best of all, the developers keep adding to it over the years... new airports, new challenges like runway closures and priority traffic, and now we're moving into space with rockets and asteroids!
Ignore all of the one-star reviews. I don't know why people are offended by an in-app purchase. It's not like they make you buy it... and the game plays fine without it. What's wrong with paying a little extra for the ability to rewind? It's hard to earn a living on just 99 cents.
Perfect Stress Outlet
Get this game you will be highly satisfied!!!
I'm not a huge gamer; in fact I'm not a gamer at all. However, I must say this is by far my favorite game and app. Of all the apps I have on my iPhone or iPad this is the only app that gets opened everyday. When I reach my desk at work, I play a game to get my juices flowing. When I take a break, I play a game. Just before I go home and when I get home, I bust out at least one game.
One would think I'm really good at it, but for me it is the perfect stress management tool. I play the game, settle down and have fun. Thank you for creating such a wonderful app.
