A game Zynga would be proud of
If you liked the original Flight Control, there is still fun to be had and the mechanics of the game are still entertaining. Unfortunately the game quickly feels like a typical EA cash grab.
Everything is about getting more coins rather that beating your score, because it's by spending coins that you will beat your score. Theoretically, you don't actually need to spend real money to get real coins, but accumulating money takes so long while playing that you are highly encouraged to do so.
Want to continue in order to beat your score? That will cost you coins. Want some gems to increase your XP faster? More coins.
In itself the coin based economy would not have bothered me so much. Done properly it could have added an interesting dimension but because EA wants you to spend actual money, the whole system is overly complicated as a result.
The worst example of this is that the avatar you use to play will run out of batteries after a few plays and you need to spend coins to buy new batteries or wait for something like an hour to be ale to play again. There is a default avatar that does not suffer from this, but gaining XP with it is of course much slower.
Should you get this game? I think if you liked the original Flight Control, you will enjoy this. Just don't use any real cash to buy coins, don't give them ideas!
Solid, entertaining game! A good evolution of the classic flight control game.
The game is essentially the same game as Flight Control, but with with different graphics and backgrounds. The new modes and challenges make it much more interesting. All upgrades are based on coins, which you earn by playing the game. You can, of course, buy more coins by in-app purchases, but there are no features which require you to spend any more money.
All in all, it's a fun game with some fun new twists that will please any fan of the original Flight Control.
Great game, great pay system
This game is a lot like flight control except with more variety. There are 3 different game modes and a variety of configurations of landing strips to choose from. There's also a power up and combo system.
One of my favorite things about this game is that you can get the powerups and such without having to pay real money. It will take you longer if you don't pay, but it's still possible and doesn't take an unreasonable amount of time. All in all, 5 stars.
