Ratings and Reviews
Not as addictive and fun as I thought
For those who don't know: you control the airspace over several airport runways and your task is to make all planes land safely. As planes enter the screen, you have to draw a flighpath for them to their landing runway and they will follow it. There are different types of planes that need to use different runways. Different planes have different air speeds. If two planes crash it's 'game over'. Over time, more and more planes arrive on your screen and eventually two will crash...
I agree that the laptop version works well, and using the large trackpad (on a MacBook Pro) feels close enough to touching a screen.
Unlike other users, the game play does nor keep me interested for too long, so I am slightly disappointed with this app, gine all the hype around it.
This is not worth the $5.49 you pay for it.
Other versions just too good
Looks great but mouse and trackpad don't provide the same experience. When you're in peak hour and doing dicey flying, getting the cursor across to make those split second adjustments all over the screen just doesn't work. Any chance the touchpad will become more like the touch screen? I'll continue shuttle piloting on the pad until then.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
