SUMMARY: An air traffic control game with some get touch controls

Check out, because your kids deserve the very best educational apps!

Flight Control is an air traffic control app for the iPhone and iPod Touch. This app will have the player guiding planes, helicopters and jets into their respective landing ports while avoiding collisions at all costs. Much like other air traffic control games, the view is set on the airport with planes and other flying craft coming in from all different angles.

Unlike games like ATC 4, Flight Control does not have the player make waypoint for the craft, but instead draw with their finger tentative flight paths. With different speeds and landing ports, the player must manage to perfection the paths of every incoming craft. This game makes the idea interesting with it's touch controls and cartoony graphics and finds a natural fit in the iphone world. The app also allows the player to play their own music to the game, making it that much more personal and enjoyable.

If you are one who is interested in micro-managing and love the intense stress from having too much to do at one time, Flight Control will give you that challenge. Aside from the challenge of managing the flight of craft, there is not much else in terms of content. You will compete against yourself for the high score and there is no online ranking system. But for the cool price this app is being offered for in the app store, it is a no-brainer if you are in need of a new game fix. Check it out today.
