Airplane!'s review

    Published: 2014-01-24, by Janel.

    Fly planes between islands in a just-realistic-enough flight simulator

    • Pretty great 3D graphics
    • Many different planes to fly
    • Controls easy to use, difficult to master
    • Can get dull just flying over the blank blue sea

    "Pull up! Pull up!!!"

    Where's Otto the Autopilot when you need him? In Quantum Design Group's Airplane!, fly a variety of planes from island to island to successfully deliver payloads of passengers and cargo.

    Choose your plane from a wide variety of options, including a rather fetching bright red biplane (I've always wanted to ride in a biplane; haven't you??). Select a mission and fasten your seatbelt. You'll need to combine precision control of the throttle and steering to get to your destination; watch the compass carefully to aim true. Landing is the biggest challenge, and I freely admit I've managed to crash and burn three times in a row upon reaching my desired endpoint. You can auto-land, but it'll cost you half your potential coins... so go easy on that throttle.

    The 3D graphics are pretty great (although this means you'll want to download the app over a WiFi connection), and I love the variety of planes that are available. Sometimes it gets pretty dull flying just over the blankness of the ocean, but I guess in that way it accurately represents what it's like to fly a commercial jet.

    If you've ever wondered what it's like to be in the cockpit, you're going to have a lot of fun with Quantum Design Group's Airplane!

    Ding... the pilot has turned on the Fasten Seat Belt sign! Things are going to get dicey! Whoa Ho! Someone left the engines running and now you get to pilot your own plane! Airplane! lets you have all the fun the big boys have by flying your plane from airport to airport delivering cargo and passengers. No need to spend days in flight school.
