A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

There are no levels to achieve, no equipment upgrades and no opponents, just planeloads of passengers circling the airport.


To reach the tutorial you have to tap past a full-screen ad for another Firemint game, Real Racing.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that the goal of this cute game is to guide small animated planes safely onto a runway. The inevitable mid-air collisions are loud but not too scary.

Tracing game is fun, origonal, and difficult

When planes crash it just makes planes flash...

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.
