  • Summary: In AERO PORTER, the player is charged with managing the busy day-to-day operations of a bustling airport through gameplay that includes both clever puzzle elements and simulation challenges. While running their flight hub, players sort color-coded luggage onto conveyor belts while avoiding mishaps and delays, all while ensuring the on-time departures of airplanes. As the game progresses, players earn money and increase their passengers in order to expand their airport, unlock new gameplay elements, and raise the level of challenge. Players are also able to design and share their own planes with a wide range of colors and patterns via StreetPass. Expand

    For as fun as the experience is, not being able to scale it back to something a little more manageable is a shame, but it's a game that gives a great experience if you're able to deal with the challenge.

    Who knew sorting out luggage would be so hard, or so much fun? Saito's skewed view on the world strikes again in this top-notch puzzler.

    As fascinatingly addictive as its premise is perversely mundane, but whatever the setting this is one of the best new puzzle games of the year.

    If you aren't afraid of an experience that starts out frantic and only escalates from there Aero Porter can be a lot of fun, but if you're easily frustrated this won't be a very pleasant experience for you. The simple presentation and intuitive controls make it easy to concentrate on the action at hand, which is good, but that action consists of shuffling bags from one place to another, which may not thrill everybody. While this might not be a first class experience, upgrades and StreetPass features keep this from being an economy flight.

    Since Aero Porter only resembles a traditional airport sim, it's hard to recommend for Aerobiz fans, but those with an affinity for fast-paced puzzlers will probably like it. It's certainly not a graphical showcase, but there's a lot of enjoyment to be had once you get past the crippling difficulty spikes. It's a lot more fun than a baggage-sorting game sounds, so If you've got the patience, give it a shot.

    Aero Porter features a good and surprisingly fun concept but fails when it comes to its execution. It's enjoyable to play through for a while but that doesn't make it a worthwhile purchase at the price of £4.49 when there are plenty of better options on the 3DS eShop. It could only be recommended to people who love micromanaging and aren't put off by heaps of frustration.

    Aero Porter is a title that requires a lot of dedication to be fully understood, but still does not satisfy the gamer. For those looking for some quick entertainment, it will be too difficult to enjoy. The diabolical structure designed by Vivarium leads only to hysteria and boredom.

    Aero Porter is perfect for gamers looking for an addictive challenge. The game itself is simple but the mechanics of it are extremely fun. This isn't an easy game so don't be fooled by its appearance. This game is a box of crazy and fun all in one. Expand

    Aeroporter ramps up in difficulty far too quickly and I seriously feel the only people able to complete it are the japanese that made it. If you want a challenge in making quick decisions this game is for you, but if you aren't great at these games stay away as it will make you feel helpless after a few levels. Collapse
