The Portable Gamer Review: Flight Control for iPhone

TPG writes: "Last week, gaming developer Firemint released an update to one of the five-star-rated apps in the App Store. Flight Control has become a bestseller and has been responsible for endless minutes spent controlling multiple aircraft and landing them on a couple of different runways.

As a gameplay feature, each aircraft has varying speeds, which makes it an exciting challenge to avoid midair collisions. As a prior air traffic control employee, I totally loved this game. At first glance you might think, "What's the big deal in directing planes to the proper runway and watching them land?" But no matter what you think, the game becomes addictive quite quickly, partly due to its simplistic playability."

Can you imagine someone like me working as flight control?

The screens look kinda boring, but the game sounds pretty awesome.

It's surprising to hear that Air Traffic Control is fun in game-form as last I heard, air traffic controllers had the highest suicide rate in the air-force.

That was a bit of a glum statement actually, sorry folks.
