Flight Control for iPhone gets Online Multiplayer Update

Firemint’s wildly popular Flight Control (TMA Review) for the iPhone has just received an update that allows for Online Multiplayer via Game Center, Apple’s own social gaming Network. Now gamers can both play the role of air traffic controller cooperatively by sending planes back and forth between each other’s iDevice screen. What’s more, Voice Chat can also be turned on during multiplayer, so both parties can discuss in-game strategies in real time.

The update is free for those who already purchased the app. If not, Flight Control for the iPhone is only $0.99 and still remains one of the most addictive games on the platform.
