What's New in Version 1.07
Fixed bug: story missions not starting
Fun, but broken
Of course the game is fun. Not much depth to the gameplay; gets old very fast. But overall it's fun for a few hours. Why only three stars? It's broken, at least on iPad. The storyline mission never gave me the choice to pick a side. And on the side I was able to play on, I was never given the last mission. Huge bummer, and I couldn't be bothered to start all over again, just to grind missions in the hope of the storyline working. :/
So, yep. This game is TOTALLY worth the nine bucks you pay, and really, it should cost a lot more. This game, in my mind, is one of THE BEST simulators out there. Even if you're like, "video games are for nerds, m8," you should still get this game. It's one of the best games on the app store, and it's a great way to spend 9 dollars.
Great Now as Then
Wonderful game even after these many years, and the iOS implementation is as good as it ought.
