Product Description
Dangerous Skies

Grapevine Limited's Air Control puts you in charge of a hectic airport environment, one where any lapse in your concentration could lead to catastrophe. That's why you can't put this addictive game down. Because this time--no, really, this time--there will be no midair collision, no crash-and-burn. You've got this, now. Maybe.

Green Field

You play the part of an air traffic controller. Looking outside from the control tower, you can see aircraft coming at you from all directions. Planes, jets, helicopters, and even zeppelins crowd the sky, perpetually risking collision. Your job: guide all of them safely to the ground.

Wings of History

You will need to keep thinking ahead, moving quickly, and multitasking in order to prevent the worst from happening. Take your eye off of potentially conflicting flight paths or stray aircraft for too long, and game over. However, every time a jet, plane, helicopter, or airship touches down intact, you win a point. As you accumulate points, you move up from rank to rank toward pilot.

Maintaining Control

As you play, aircraft continually careen into view, heading toward the airport without clear flight paths. You have the power to re-route each of these simply by tracing a line between the craft's icon and the place where you want it to go. Touch the icon, and a designated runway, landing strip, or helipad will light up on the airfield. Draw a line from the icon's position to that landing area. If you've drawn a valid landing path, the plane will turn white and follow it.

Blue Ocean

You can choose one of four custom game environments: The default Green Field environment represents a modern airport servicing jets, planes, and helicopters. The Desert River background assigns you to a more remote airfield handling similar traffic. The Blue Ocean has you directing fighter jet and helicopter landings on an aircraft carrier. And Wings of History puts you in charge of a vintage airstrip frequented by single- and twin-propeller planes and zeppelins.

Desert River

• Choose from field, desert, ocean, and historical landing environments

• Rise from amateur to trainee to wannabe to pilot

• Compare your high scores to other players'

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
Verified Purchase
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.

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

1.0 out of 5 stars no support? March 18, 2013
Verified Purchase
When I attempted to play I was met with w "No longer supported" message and sent to app store to what? Buy again? Not a good way to profit.
I don't expect to repurchase or constantly update software that I pay for. This is unacceptable.

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. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun! May 10, 2011
Verified Purchase
This is a great, fun little game. I've played both Air Control and Flight Control. Both games operate similarly. You can't go wrong with either version, but I like Air Control a little better because it's simple and straightforward. The graphics aren't as cartoony.
