Re: good game
I had written a review before for this game but wanted to revise it. I’ve loved this game since I was quite young. It probably is the only good plane/airline tycoon game for free on the App Store today. It’s easy to catch on to, it’s not complex under any circumstances. It’s just flying from city to city moving product and people.
The reason why I’m not giving this game 4 or 5 stars is because it still feels lacking in a sense. There should be more cities included in the game. I feel like certain countries are completely left out of the game for no apparent reason. Also, the game after a while gets somewhat boring after playing it for a certain amount of time, it gets repetitive. If there were some micromanaging aspects to the game other then changing your aircraft’s color then I think it could maybe improve that a bit. I also think that it takes far too long to get medium and long range aircraft on the market. The game is based around a rank system, the higher your rank, the better planes you get. The problem lies in the fact that it takes far to long to get up to the required rank to get a decent aircraft. Don’t get me wrong if you enjoy grinding out for a plane and gaining that satisfaction, then this is the game for you, personally I’m not that kinda guy.
All in all this game was great for its time, just wish it got a few new tweaks and mechanics to spice up the gameplay
Long term investment, Very Enjoyable
I’ve recently started playing this game. It is absolutely amazing. It’s so much fun, especially if you enjoy management games. But, what I’ve noticed is that this is a long-term game. You don’t play this game for a week, and be high level and get everything in the game. No, most players have invested months, some people even have years on this game. I can see why, because the enjoyment of this game is never ending. I also love the fact that you don’t have to play it all the time. Sure, if you want to, you totally can have short flights, and manage your planes every 5 minutes or more. But if you only want to check in once and hour or so, you can have longterm flights. It has a lot of choices. If you want to fly cargo, or fly passengers, or both. If you want long flights or short flights. All of that is up to you. From what I can tell, the community around this game is really cool. It isn’t a huge community, but the reddit is filled with nice people. Overall, this game is absolutely amazing, and is my goto for a mobile game.
More Friendly Interaction
I am by no means any bot far ahead in the game, but it is already apparent to me what things I desire that are lacking here. I see that we can add friends, and I have done so. I see that we can gift items to friends, that's wonderful. You can represent the same team in global contest. But it would be really great if you could see your friend's planes on your own map, or if you could manage your added friend's flights while they are away. This doesn't have to be an absolute feature, perhaps you could have additional personalization settings to disallow this kind of behavior. The only issue is that there is very little in the way of teamwork options. I don't want to feel alone with a friends list full of names, I want to feel like there is the option for tangible and active teamwork in a fashion that helps every party involved.
Alas, this is my only complaint thus far, it is a wonderful game and I am still enjoying the features it does have. I would love to see the developers revisit this game and bring in more potential for its players.
