Ratings and Reviews
lot more fun on iPad but still good
Played first on a friend's iPad and its great and very addictive. Download on iMac. Its great but not the same touch screen feature obviously.
Not the same on a macbook?
I bought this after playing it for ages on an ipad in an Apple store. I was however disappointed as for me it looses a lot by not being able to input the flight paths by a simple placing of a finger on the screen. Definately NOT the same using the track pad! Gave it three stars - 5 for playing it on the ipad & 1 for the Macbook.
Great fun (and BTW, the interface works just fine on OSX)
I'm not sure why some of the others are belly-aching about the mouse/trackpad controls (as opposed to iPhone/iPad's): this seems to me to have just about the easiest and most intuitive user interface of any game I've ever tried! (I'm playing on a MBP with trackpad.)
And more to the point, it is great fun and hugely addictive, and well worth the small price. Highly recommended - just don't expect to get much work done after you try this! :-)
