Great artwork, disappointing concept....
So yeah... the developer has executed grandly on artwork... and tied sound to motion (not super easy I'm sure)... but it seems like someone started out with ... "Hey, I wonder if I can hook the sound of something up to the accelerometer and make the sound move with the motion of the iPhone." And from there, they figured it out... plugged in a jet, a prop plane, and a helicopter... drew some beautiful digital images of these things,... but stopped there!?! No concept of the airplane crashing.... or climbing for so long that the engine stalls and alerts go off... a little "May day! May day!" call out?
I love airplanes, and I enjoyed Draw Racing from this same company. 99-cents for a little gimmicky toy is totally cool too, even better for a game with a little bit of play to it. So RedLynx... in my opinion... I only got about 30-cents worth of entertainment for my 99-cents.
In all fairness to your customers... advertise this thing with a better description... instead of putting the "Your phone, It's A PLANE!!!" bait on it and catching sucker bites. Sure, you get the bite, but you lose the customer. Not a good plan.
Happy Holidays to ya!
I find this app somewhat entertaining at times. It also makes a very good sound effect in my homemade videos like if I dicide I wand to show a plane in the video and it's turning and all that I'd say this app is great for the simulation. Two concerns of mine is i think the helicopter needs to be improved and there needs to be at least two more planes maybe even a car or a boat.
I was really expecting more from this. I know it's just a "virtual toy", but still. This app is really missing out by not tapping into the accelerometer. I expected to bank the plane and have the ground or horizon reflect that.
