Product Description

Note: Requires Kindle Fire HD or better.

Snap parts together to build your airplane's body. Place engines to add thrust. Design the wings, and then strap yourself into the cockpit and see how it flies.

AIRPLANE DESIGNER
You will have the tools to bring any aircraft to life. Design your own wings, shape the fuselage, customize propeller engines, and more.

DOWNLOAD AIRPLANES
A thriving community of players are creating next-generation fighters, WW2 warbirds, civilian aircraft, and everything in between. There are well over 50,000 airplanes and they are all free to download and fly. You can share your own airplanes and rise through the ranks to become a Bronze, Silver, or Gold Builder.

DYNAMIC FLIGHT MODEL
Every change you make in the designer impacts how the airplane flies. Weight, thrust, lift, and drag are all calculated continuously while flying.

REALTIME DAMAGE
Parts can break off in spectacular fashion while flying due to over-stress or by hitting something. The fun won't stop there though. You can keep on flying even with a missing wing if you've got the skills...the flight model updates in realtime to accurately simulate any damage to your airplane's structure.

SANDBOX MODE
So, you've had a rough landing and the left engine was knocked off? After watching the engine fly off into the sunset you may decide to go ahead and slap the throttle to full...and give it another go with only one engine. This is what sandbox mode was made for... test your airplane with no restrictions.

CHALLENGES
Land on aircraft carriers, dodge surface-to-air missiles, race through canyons, and much more.

FLOATING PARTS
Create airplanes that can take-off and land in the water, as well as fully functional boats complete with underwater rudders and keels for control and stability.

EDUCATIONAL
Tutorials will help players learn the basics of real airplane design and the considerations that need to be taken when airplanes are made.

Honestly, the graphics are amazing even in the lowest quality setting, the plane building aspect is fun yet realistic, and there are unlimited possibilities when it comes to what you can make. I have played this game for some time now but I have not tired of it. Also, it is really cool that you can upload your creations and download other people's planes--I have learned some things just by looking at other people's designs. My only recommendation is that the app creators design another map or two since this would expand the possibilities even more. The app runs well on my Kindle Fire, which is actually rather old since I bought it in 2012. The game is well worth the $4.99--download it now!!!!!

This is an amazing physics-based plane building game that pretty much everyone can enjoy! I believe I was the first person to buy this app from the Amazon Appstore, but I didn't rate it right away, because I was too busy playing! The point of the game is to build planes in either Sandbox mode, or one of the many missions and challenges that come with the app. You are able to download planes to use as well, making this different from Jundroo's other games. I really recommend getting this app, as it's extremely fun. You wouldn't be wasting your money if you buy this app!

This game is best enjoyed by people who can "make their own fun". It has challenges and specific challenges, but to get the best experience you really need to be able to have fun just building planes and trying to make them fly well.

The building of planes works well, simple enough to make things pretty quick, but with added customization for people who want to make their plane fly just right.

Overall I highly recommend it. The dev seems really nice and has been good about adding substantial updates to his other noteworthy games.

This is the best game ever, it is confusing at first but once you understand wings and understand weight you are pretty good. If you dont buy this and buy something else not from this developer than you have a corrupted soul.

Thank you for reading,

SimplePlanes is a sand box plane building/flying simulator. I got this as a Free App of the Day a few weeks back. The title is deceiving though, because there's nothing simple about this!

There's no goal or story line here. You build your own custom plane from scratch, modify or use a pre-existing one in the game (there's about 8), or you can download other people's creations to your device. Using the plane of your choice you can then either fly around in a sand box mode to test out your plane or just go wild and have fun. There's several challenges to complete, including racing against the clock, evading missiles, and landing/taking off on an aircraft carrier. After several hours I managed to complete two challenges and fail repeatedly on all the others.

There's not a whole lot in the sand box mode (called 'Free Fly' I believe). The one and only map is an island with a few canyons with some smaller islands with airstrips. This is also where you'll perform the challenges.

The best part of SimplePlanes is the build-mode where you can create your own aircraft from scratch. I had the most fun trying out different wacky designs or trying to build sci-fi spacecraft and getting them to work (spolier: they didn't). There's a quick tutorial for how to build a plane but I still felt it wasn't enough. Even when going for 'simple' designs that I was sure would work I managed to create death traps. You'll likely spend most of your time experimenting with moving parts around and changing your design than flying. Luckily the game has those pre-built planes for you to use right away.

Overall SimplePlanes feels like a game made for engineers. While building and testing planes was great, there's not a whole lot else to do here once you've completed/given up on the challenges.

Now off to try to get my X-Wing to work.

Pros:
-Build-mode
-Challenging Challenges

Cons:
-Only 1 map
-Tutorial felt lacking

This is actually two games in one; it has a sandbox mode where you design and build planes with no limits (apart from physics- and the physics engine is quite accurate) and a flight simulator. The flight simulator controls reflect that of real planes- you have two joysticks that control thrust, pitch, yaw and roll, plus a small instrument panel showing your elevation, angle of attack, fuel, etc. This can be a lot to take in, but the game provides tutorials and there is no penalty for crashing, so you can keep trying as you modify your plane or improve your flying skills.

I enjoy building & designing planes, but you can also download and fly user-made planes from their website. The planes all handle differently depending on the design. A highly recommended title.
