In this action-packed game, take on the role of an air traffic controller at an increasingly busy airport. In complete control of the airspace, direct aircraft to their appropriate landing zones while avoiding collisions. Travel to airports set among green fields, a beachside resort, the Australian Outback, a winter wonderland and even an aircraft carrier. Learn how to land 10 different kinds of aircraft, including jets, seaplanes and helicopters. To direct aircraft, simply touch and drag them to their landing zones with the stylus without letting them collide. Sounds easy? You'll need smart strategy, keen eyes and a smooth touch to keep the chaos under control. You can even work alongside a friend in cooperative multiplayer mode, and guard the airways together. Flight Control only takes a minute to learn – just don't expect to put it down as quickly as you'll pick it up. [Nintendo] Expand

    Hugely addictive, but that price is nothing short of scandalous. [Apr 2010, p.92]

    Flight Control is a great example of delivering a simple-yet-addictive idea in the perfect way at the ideal price.
  3. Flight Control is an example of how should (and can) be a downloadable game: fast, accessible and addictive.
  4. There’s very little wrong with Flight Control but it does feel a little thin. The additions of a new airfield and two-player mode are very welcome, but given the game’s origins as an addictive single-player score attack game it’s a shame more wasn’t done to boost this aspect: the removal of leaderboards hurts the game immeasurably.
