I get more & more irritated by the amount of morons who leave reviews on Amazon. If you've never played the game, don't leave a 1 star review just because you're too stupid to understand what permissions are for. Nobody's "spying" on you for cheese sake. Also, yes, this is a Flight Control clone. That's why it's a fun game. Have none of you noticed there are a bazillion clones of other games out there? Farmville (gag) has been copied to death, as has Sim City, Bejeweled, & every single successful game formula ever made. It happens. Get over it.

As for the's a great time killer. There's not much to it other than directing planes in & out of the runways, but it gets difficult fast & will keep you on your toes. Install it & enjoy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars There are always May 10, 2011

Who cares if it is the same game concept? If you look at the games for the iPhone/iPad, there are many versions of this.

Angry Birds is popular but they ripped off the entire concept and gameplay from "Crush The Castle!" No one is complaining about that!

4.0 out of 5 stars Well done and smooth May 10, 2011

So what if it is a port of another game that is the same, it is well done. The graphics are smooth, the controls are responsive, and it is more attractive than the other game, in my opinion. Welcome to a free market society, where people are allowed to do something better than someone else, even if that someone else invented it. I like the game for its merits. Well done.

I haven't had a chance to spend as much time as I'd like to with the game, but so far so good, I am liking it. And seriously, people who are whining about it being a copy, which rock are you living under? Or are you an infant to the gaming industry? There are millions of copies of games out everyday! It's what keeps the ball rolling!

Have you ever heard of the good competition = keeping developers on their toes = better products for the end consumer?

Or maybe all of you whiners want to just have ONE product who takes their own lazy sweet time to update and never provides what the customer needs, let's not even start on what they want. Oh yeah, how could I forget, Steve Jobs has done that for years (until Android, thank God).

No one is denying the original developer their fame, they deserve it, and it's out in the open for people to appreciate - that doesn't mean you contemptuously judge every other attempt out there, if that were the case we would never have had any progress and would still be living in caves since it was *GASP* dishonest to outdo or attempt to outdo a product.

I'm not promoting piracy or beginning a Copyright debate here, but THINK a little. And honestly, get off your high "honest" horses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Actually a great game May 10, 2011
Regardless of whether its a copy or not, I think this game is great. its fun, addicting, and not too hard. I did pay money for it, and i do not regret it. It is a 2d game,but i hardly think expecting a 3d traffic control game is reasonable. Overall, this is a good game, and definetly worth the money of lack thereof when its the free app

i wonder if the thousands of tetris clones caught THIS much grief? look, it's a GAME! & a quite amusing one @ that. who gives a righteous darn if it's a bloody clone? hey here's a thought, why don't all the "clone" haters here go make their OWN original game an toss it to amazon & see how well THEY do! the game appears simple, but it can & does get hectic! so in closing, today it's free. just try it and enjoy. if you don't like it delete it. *shrug* ther ya go. thank you Amazon for doing the free app a day. i for one appreciate it. oh as for the graphics? i prefer these non frufru graphics. lets me enjoy the game more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addicting and fun! May 10, 2011
Verified Purchase
This was one of the first games I got for the G2, and it runs smoothly and is a great time waster. My son and I would take turns playing it while waiting at, say, the doctors office. The is the first app review I've written, and I'm doing it because of the other stupid reviews. You're supposed to review the product. Who cares if it's like another game? Did you enjoy it? Yes? Then put that down!! Don't like the permissions? Then don't install it!! This isn't rocket science, folks!

Anyhow, great app...get it! And thanks amazon as now I can uninstall the lite version :)

Yes, it's essentially the same as Flight Control. But, Flight Control copied the concept elsewhere, etc. Many games are like that. Makes me think of movie remakes! Sometimes they are a great improvement, sometimes they are trash. Air Control has improved, realistic graphics over Flight Control. There are options to have clouds, and the planes taxi into lanes! It plays the same as Flight Control. I do like the nostalgic feel Flight Control has over Air Control, but they are both great games. :)
