I had doubts whether this would be worth the upgrade from the iPhone version, but they've been mostly soothed. The new levels are neat and the mouse controls feel just as good as touch. I'm really not sure if I'd be willing to pay more than a dollar for this, though.

Pretty accurate simulator.
I launched this game today to find that it crashes as soon as I let go of the mouse button.
Even though i cannot play the game at all i think it perfectly simulates many historical events and has a very good physics engine.
Visuals: 8/10
Gameplay: 9/11

Flight Control is a very nice time killing game and it has actually everything it needs to be perfect in its genre: a nice diversity in difficulty, different maps and planes with additional features, highscores and statistics... and the addiction level.

You can easily try something more difficult if you think you are improving in the game or on the other hand something easier if you are a beginner. The variation and differences in maps and planes are different at each difficulty. Additions such as the wind system, the stunt map or just more kind of planes are good examples for the differences in playing. The highscores and statistics are good additional features.

If you are getting more skilled, this game can be quite more than just time killing ;)*

9/10

*I have not played this game that much on PC but I did on iOS.

Good thing real traffic controlers got an extra dimension to deal with. I'm sure its quite handy at times.
