First, the facts. The game is an airport traffic control simulation adapted to a sci-fi theme where rovers and other land vehicles approach your ship and you have to give them paths to board. There are a few twists I haven't seen in this genre: upgradable power-ups, enemy vehicles and meteors you must shoot, meteors drop gems you can collect to get cash for power-ups.

Second, impressions. Although the concept is interesting, the quality is below acceptable. The 3D terrain looks good but the rovers can't follow their paths precisely so collecting the gems becomes a nightmare sometimes. Also, there is a glitch when objects intersect with the surface and only the tip of a gem or part of a rover (or nothing) is visible. The flashing effects, explosions and the repetitive music makes it a rather frustrating experience, not a good casual neither an interesting action game.

The game was adapted from tablet to PC. The graphics, controls and interface are ok, but I wouldn't recommend the game itself: all you have to do is drag an endless number of lines and loops to guide the rovers. And the "soundtrack" (if one could name it as such) is repetitive, even annoying.

So, unless you miss playing on your tablet, find something else.
