Firemint’s Flight Control gets 1.2 Update

flightcontrol_12update5Over the past several months, there have been some great games priced at a dollar that has made its way to the Top 10 at the App Store: Doodle Jump, Pocket God and Stickwars just to name a few. Not only are they great in value, but their developers have also made every effort in updating the game to keep the content fresh and sweet. Well Firemint, the fine folks behind one of the most popular titles in Flight Control (and one that had been enjoying life atop of the App World for quite sometime) has just released a worthwhile update that includes more planes, airports and in-game scoreboards for those ultra competitive stat junkies.

If you have yet to try out Flight Control, do us a favor and buy the $0.99 game ASAP. Its fun, addictive and crazy challenging (I can’t disclose how many planes I have landed for fear of being mocked), and it sure beats being a real ATC controller. Be sure to check out J. D’s review of the game and more juicy screenshots/details can be found after the jump.

Last Cannon in Review – Beware the Knurlings

last_cannon1

“This is the end. What was once paradise is now waste and rotting meat. I am surrounded by the decaying corpses of these disgusting invaders. The stink of them fills my thoughts. And I am so hungry. Before my mind consumes itself in despair, I have to write our story. My name is Jhava, and as far as I know, I’m all that’s left.”

Dark and somber, but it catches your attention huh? That is the beginning of the tale you get if you choose to open the in game journal. Don’t worry though, Last Cannon is actually very relaxing to play and the rest of the game isn’t really depressing.

Ragdoll Blaster in Review – Misfired?

review-game-ragdollblaster-rdb1

At first glance this game has the simplistic feel and look that I tend to enjoy in iDecive games. in fact, this one particularly reminded me of Doodle Jump and Crayon Physics, both of which are incredibly fun and intuitive games. With high hopes, I fired this app up and boy was I disappointed. The cannon was loaded with a ball of potential, its aim perfect, and its fuse lit… but there was no boom. The cannoneer misfired with Ragdoll Blaster.

Pocket Tanks Deluxe in Review – Fire in the Hole!

pocket_tanks_deluxe1Pocket Tanks is a game that has been around in some shape or form since 2001. It’s available for the Windows and OSX platforms. As stated in the iTunes page, “Almost 2 million downloads from download.com alone (PC version).” With such a large fan base, a leg up in terms of gameplay refinement, and the staying power of 8 years of experience, (I know I’m going to get some flak for this) I’m surprised at how much I felt Pocket Tanks was lacking.

Flight Control in Review – Sitting in the Airport Just Got Interesting!

flightcontrol1I had originally grabbed Flight Control on a whim, something about the simplistic art style and the 99 cent price tag flipped my impulse switch. Before I even recognized what I was doing, the game installed on my iPod. Going in I had no expectations for the game, hell I barely even knew what it was about! After the initial loading screen you’re confronted with this simple question “Welcome Aboard! Would you like game sounds?” Without considering the ramifications of my actions I clicked the red “YES” button. The slightly upbeat elevator music transported me to a 1950’s airport terminal. I had become an Air Traffic Controller, not just any air traffic controller… I was the BEST.
