About This Game

Air Control is a new gen airplane simulator. It is the first airplane game, where plane compartment is visible.
It allows you to play several roles in different game modes : stewardess, mechanic, pilot and passenger.


There are 3 modes in the game : "Realistic mode", "Killjoy mode" and "Casual mode".

Realistic mode allows you to play more as a pilot than as a stewardess. This mode contains high quality airplane models with compartment just like in real planes.
Killjoy mode allows you to play as a pilot and as a passenger the same time. You can view flight as a passenger from the compartment while you are controlling the airplane.
Casual mode is a "Just for fun" mode. It is silly, made to entertain you. It contains no story and levels are not connected.

Please, kill me. This game rarley works, the developer is a new kind of idiot and it never works properly. In my entire time playing this horable game I couldn't even beat the game which is a 20 minute long campaing. This game steals stuff at random and just thows it into the game. The description is loaded with false advertising and the one that really ♥♥♥♥es me off is Try the best flight simulation in the history of computer games today! I don't play simulator games often because I don't like them personaly but there are WAY BETTER ONES. I'm an idiot for buying this game, I went in and bought it just seeing how ♥♥♥♥ty it is. But its way worse, don't buy this as a joke, dont buy this to troll a friend, dont even go on this page ever again. Every one who worked on this game made it on a Windows 98 and compleated the game in 15 minutes. Also the whole "Your computer is not capable of running this game" ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ is just a kick in the balls too, I'm pretty sure every modern computer can handle this game its just this game is so poorly writen that it would crash unless you do some thing advanced such as pressing a few keys. Dont buy this.

Don't. Don't go near this.

... Why. You're better off playing Ride to Hell: Retribution which has now been deleted from steam, and yet this title is still here.

I fired up this game from my Steam Library hoping to test my new flight stick as I (Legally, of course) obtain my copy of MS Flight Sim.

After messing around with this for about 5 minutes I finally figured out how to close the doors so we could take off.

Then I laughed uncontrollably as I "flew" the plane on a series of death waves, hit the ground and promptly...

Bounced.

A380s don't bounce.

This game is disgusting. It rarly works and most of the time sound only plays through one of your ears. You can barly do anything you read about in the description and the screenshots do not look anything like the game itself. DO NOT BUY!. It is the WarZ of plane simulators!

Rubbish game. Worst thing on steam, unplayable. Framerate issues, rubbish gameplay mechanics, screwed up HUD and graphically disgusting.

After seeing ton of people quoting specs of my PC(High end I7 with xfire 7970 and 16GB RAM) or Nerd's PC with his 64GB of Ram and other incredibly over-kill components and claiming that the developer's comment under this review, as well as many others is ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, I have this to say;

The comment below isn't so much about the performance and frame rates that my rig or Nerd's rig are getting on this title, but the fact that I THOUGHT I was unable to load certain levels, which in turn made me think that the game was simply broken. When I spoke to the developer they told me that the loading times are wonky, sometimes they load fast, and sometimes they dont.

Not defending the dev here, overall this is still a crappy game which needs tons of work, but before you start talking ♥♥♥♥ about people, at least have the decency to check out what the hell is going on before doing so.

EDIT EDIT: FISH SIM IS NOW RELEASED ON EARLY ACCESS, THIS HAS HIGH SIMILARITIES TO THE GAME ON GREENLIGHT THAT WAS MADE BY KJ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ksQiZMZpwI

ALSO A VIDEO I MADE PROVING IT IS MADE BY HIM, I AM ALSO BANNED FROM BOTH FORUMS.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9u9QTxomHeA

EDIT: THE DEV HAS RECENTLY CHANGED FROM KILLJOYGAMES TO IRON.

I was very Biased in my review, that is clear now, so I have decided to not try and review it but let you see it for yourselves and make your own decisions.

WOAH WOAH HOLD UP

At first, this review was made on weak computer.
Secondly I want to say you guys that this guy who recorded review did not read about game controls and that is why airplane fell down in the end.

This review was written by developer to clarify some moments.'

1. This was recorded on the highest setting. 2. That is part of the controls, you hold Y and it does that. 3. Quality doesn't change much if anything at all and FPS is just as bad when not recording.

Quite possibly the worst game ever created. Screw this, I'm gonna go play E.T.

Edit: I would like to apologize to the developers of ET for comparing this game to ET. It is an insult to their creation to be compared to something as awful as this.

This is not even a bad game. It's not really a game at all. Imagine if a schoolkid was given some software a bit like Gary's Mod and they tried to "make a game" with it- that's what you have here.

For example here's how realistic mode goes:

You start off in a plane at an airport. You press space to make the plane drive forwards into a green box that is right in front of you.

Now a new level loads. You get an animated cutscene of inside the plane with some kind of voice over (no subtitles and I'm hard of hearing so dunno what it says- I think like normal 'this is your captain' and safety demonstration stuff).

Then you have control. You are walking inside the aircraft. Graphics are flickery, glitchy. The passengers are frozen, like dummies in their seats. You notice some of the aircraft doors have green blocks drawn round them. You walk up and you get an ugly UI on the screen with a button to close the door. You close all the doors. You have "solved" this level.

Now you are the aircraft again, bizarrely not on a runway but a seemingly open brown dirt plain. You press space for engines and Y to "take off". You do this. In the air you have a very weird and simple "flight model". The distance to your target is shown.

I pressed c to change view and was in the cockpit. The instruments are just static and don't do anything.

Now a new "level" loads. This time there's just crappy UI and it's showing me some kind of curved line on stars and saying you have to plot your course by the stars and draw the shape. I try with the mouse. There's no feedback or indication of whether I passed or failed.

A new level loads. Now I'm in the aircraft over water. Distance to target gets less and less. A city appears, with an airport right in front of you with a huge green box to "land" in. I fail anyway and the plane is upside down on the ground. I rotate the camera. Under the ground is the sea.

I press escape and try to restart. Now I'm in the middle of the city, can't see my plane and no keys will do anything.

THIS IS PURE GARBAGE. I'm serious. This is not like a game where some people "how can steam sell this garbage!" because the game is a bit crappy- this is really seriously, what the heck is this doing on steam because I don't even....

Be aware- there are people out there on the dev's friends list who are giving this glowing reviews and dismissing criticism. This is going to get pulled off steam it's just a matter of time. Earth Year 2066 did. This will too.

Horrible audio, controls, ui, texturing and lighting. Strange cursor lock buttons all over the place. Your mouse controls both the cursor and your view at the same time, making you look around as you're trying to click on "ui elements".

Gameplay in realistic mode makes no sense.

1. Taxi plane straight into walkway.
2. Teleport to inflight safety speach.
3. Walk around as what I assume is the flight attendant closing the already closed doors (Any flight I've been on they generally close the doors before they taxi into the walkway)
4. Teleport to the pilot's seat. "Space" to start the engines, "Y" to hover like a UFO until the plane decides to flip inverted and crash into the runway.
5. Alt-f4 to quit your bugged upside down plane and uninstall

Not recommended.

I don't think Delta Airlines gave the devs permission to use their safety video

This game has potential to be one of the great parody "sim" games like Surgeon or Goat Simulator, but the technical issues with the controls and poor optimization ruin the experience.

That's just the icing on the cake:
-There's no logical consistency between the tasks you complete in casual mode
-Pressing "y" makes your plane lift up as if it was a helicopter
-Selecting killjoy mode caused the the game to sieze up and crash.
-There's a "Coming Soon" button, which leads me to believe that there is a mode they haven't added yet! Why didn't the developers submit this to early access instead?

Also, in Realism mode, you are treated to audio that sounds very familliar if you fly a certian airline. I haven't found anything in the game acknowledging permission from Delta to use their work.

This is, easily and by a wide margin, the single worst "game" that was ever sold on Steam.

This is magnitudes worse than "Bad Rats", it is more broken than the infamous "Stalin vs. Martians", it makes "Big Rigs Over The Road Racing" look like a competent racing game with text written by an Oxford English professor. This isn't merely "Ride to Hell: Retribution" bad, this is worse than anything that came before it on Steam and it will be a long time until someone manages to make a game worse than this.

Imagine the worst possible "game" someone with nearly zero experience, zero skills, zero budget and zero motivation could throw together in the free Unity Engine with some free assets in a weekend ... Air Control is several magnitudes worse than that.

Every single thing one could possibly get wrong in making a game, the developers managed to screw up even worse than one could have previously imagined. There is not a single redeeming feature about this, none.

The "gaming experience" consists of staring at shockingly long loading screens (on a modern and powerful gaming PC with all bells and whistles), watching the most incompetent and broken cutscenes I have ever seen and then being greeted by the worst UI I have ever experienced just about anywhere. It's proof that Dilbert's "Interface Poisoning" may be a real thing and I may not have more than a week to live ...

Stumbling through the cabin at single digit frames per second and with staggeringly bad mouse and keyboard controls I realized that I should stop and not dare go any further after just a few minutes. The same thing I'm now realizing with this review, I have to end this, now.

Unless you want to own the worst possible game that was and hopefully ever will be released on Steam, please avoid everything about this game.


0/10 would be too generous for something that basically defines the new bottom of the barrel - this should be negative two of ten because it's magnitudes worse than anything I have ever seen.


P.S.: The "voiceover" was lifted from a Delta Airlines safety video on Youtube and almost certainly used without permission:
