Is it any good?


Don't let the line drawings fool you. Flight Control is entertaining and highly addictive. Bring flights in safely by drawing a path with your finger from the plane to the runway. When planes multiply from all directions don't choke or they'll crash with a sound like trash cans being kicked over. Success is rewarded with polite applause and a "refreshing beverage" served by a stewardess dressed in a retro 50s uniform.
