This is a very simple and fun game from the "line drawing" genre.
You can play 6 maps, each presents a unique game experience. Some require fast fingers, others require careful planning.
Plane Control has been a great diversion for me and my two sons over the past month. I like that no matter how good you are, you eventually crash. My favorite scenario is the "Wave." (I own the family leader board) In every game, things can go from under control to hectic at any moment. I have not played other games of this type, but find Plane Contro to be fairly priced and fun to play.
Not the best game in town
Plane Control is a rather disappointing game. Having played such games as Air Traffic Control (Mac System 9), and Flight Control HD, Plane Control is a rather clumsy application by comparison. The faults I find with the game are: The aircraft icons are disproportionate to the airfields; The rendering of the flight paths has a low resolution, not allowing for finesse in setting up traffic patterns. The only positive comment is that the animation and graphics in the "Greenfield" and "Island Rush" maps is superb. I would rate the game a $0.80, not worth the $1.99 price.
Once you start, you cannot stop playing this simple but fun game. Connect the planes to the destinations; easy enough but the quest for higher high scores keeps me hitting the play again button over and over.
