Customer Reviews

good game, marred by interaction with notification center

It's a clever concept and a fun game. That's the good.

The bad is that the difficulty level is surprisingly high. It's made worse by offscreen planes spawning in right next to existing planes. There's little the player can do about that. It would have been better to prevent new planes from spawning so close new planes that are already in play.

And unfortunately there's a frustrating interaction with notification center. Any top-to-bottom swipe in the upper part of the screen brings down notification center and pauses the game. Ugh. It's still worth playing, even though this is major blemish on a nicely designed game.

Long time fan

This is a simple to learn game; mastery is where the challenge is. Like a classic arcade game, you won't be able to stop reaching for a higher score. FlightControl is exellent when you only have a few minutes to play (until you get good at it). Firemint originally released a single map for directing air traffic. This has been expanded to three locations, each complete with local unique air traffic, online score ranking, and most recently, multi-player support. Just when you think you're done, updates continously add new features to this instant classic.

Awesome App.

Flight control will provide you hours of non-stop entertainment on the go whether you are in a vehicle or on foot, you will never again feel the tedious sensation of boredom. I, a player of Flight Control has given this app maximum ratings because this app has well derserved it's 5 stars rating through not only the gameplay, but as well as the fair price. I have never experienced any sort of lag or crashing during my gameplay on this app, as result I must tell you that this is truly one of the rare "Must Buy" apps that the App Store has to offer.
