In preparation for the holiday season, Firemint has updated their mighty popular iOS games with new additional content.Â Flight ControlÂ (TMA Review) for the iPhone receives the new Storm Airfield map. As the name implies, any aircraft zapped by lighting can’t turn for a period of Time. Meanwhile, Flight Control HDÂ offers the new Moon Base Map, where you not only have to avoid other spacecrafts, but asteroids as well. More importantly, both Flight Control games now allow players to buy Rewind credits ($0.99 for 10 rewinds), which can then be used to turn back time and potentially earn higher scores by averting imminent disaster.Â Last but not least, the splendid puzzlerÂ SPY mouseÂ is now Holiday themed (World 1). So expect snow, Christmas decorations, candy canes instead of cheese crumbs and more. Full “What’s New” details after the break.
Firemint announced earlier this morning that their bestselling Flight Control HD (see our iPhone review) has dropped in price from $4.99 to $0.99 for one day – an 80% discount.
