Flight Control HD reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from French
Flight control, a classic app store, is available recently on PC, via steam. The game offers you to embody an air traffic controller, the most stressful job in the world! Flight control HD, like its equivalent on the iPad, is based on a very simple gameplay: you will have to land airplanes and helicopters on different tracks, heliports and aircraft carriers. To do this, nothing is simpler, you only have to select those who enter your airspace and draw a path to the destination of your choice. As air traffic becomes more and more dense, you will have to do everything to avoid collisions in the middle of the flight. sometimes you will have no choice but to redirect traffic temporarily, in order to review your overall strategy. The game offers a dozen levels, each with different configurations of airports. There are also about ten types of aircraft, some moving very slowly, others faster. History to vary a little playability, some levels offer unique game mechanics. For example, in a snowy winter amusement park, where the airstrips close and reopen according to the prevailing conditions, you will need to keep an eye on the direction of the wind. Another example is that in the Australian Bush you will be able to observe the local air ambulance in action. When emergency planes appear, you will have to avoid them as their landing path will be a priority. In a level exclusive to the steam version, you will be able to direct aerobatics as part of aerial slaloms, to maximize your points, while avoiding the usual air traffic. Although this game only offers you to beat your own records, it knows how to remain fun. Positives: + excellent grip + very good replayability + stimulating experience negative points-no co-op multiplayer on PC-not enough levels (about 10)

in my opinion, this is a really nice and well made app, but as a suggestion I suggest two things 1) it may seem fussy but, in my opinion, the mac apps don't have the same icon as the ones for ios, let me explain better: the square shape was created specifically for ios to be more foolish to "touch" but on mac this not necessary, just the plane, without the blue square! 2) support for lion = full screen don't take these comments as criticisms but as simple tips that could make this app even more perfect than it already is

The idea behind this game is known and is now available for various platforms. What distinguishes Flight Control HD from other (mobile) versions is that in all its simplicity it has been worked out extremely well: it is (also) good to play with the mouse, the different cards still offer enough variation and you can make it as difficult as you want. It is not a game that keeps you off the street for days, but it is precisely at the 'catch a little airport in between' that there is a danger that you will constantly improve your scores. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Never been hooked on a game ever! "Must do more! Must do more!" Snow is thought after every game, and suddenly you have played all day. (NOTE: DO NOT WASTE THE LIFE BEFORE THE SCREEN! ;-) The principle is simple, you have to land the planes that pop up and make sure they do not crash, but at the same time there are endless possibilities when one researches keep order in the airspace and gives the planes down. Finally, it is as it should, and two aircraft crash, but something that is so witty is that you for applause! Ha-ha ... Simple but ingenious game! Very good value for money, I think. How many more boards come to it eventually!

Do not understand some users who complain about the controller. That it will not go like the iPad / Phone via touchscreen, is indeed apparent before the purchase. Nevertheless, the developers have managed to develop an easy and precise control using a mouse or trackpad. Graphics are at a good level according to the genre. The sounds are suitable, but nothing unusual. The music is a bit monotonous because the same song is always played at a certain interval (would be great if the developer would come up with something new!). Otherwise, in my opinion the best game in between!
