Game: Airport Touch Goes Free on Ovi StoreFiled Under Nokia 5800 Games
Offscreen Technologies, one of the best known developers for the symbian fifth edition platform have been doling out christmas giveaways on the ovi store for a while now. If you have been following closely on the development over at the ovi store, you would have noticed that Offscreen has been dishing out one paid app after another, sans the price tag.
The latest to join the bandwagon of paid to free apps/games from Offscreen Technologies is the Airport Touch, a fun little game, wherein the gamer has to direct the incoming flights to the landing strip of a virtual airport. Sounds interesting? Hit on the jump button for more tid-bits of this game on our 5800s.
How does the job of an Air Traffic Controller appeal to you? With the task of ensuring that each aircraft gets the designated strip for take-off and landing, this is probably one of the toughest jobs, which demands practioners to be on high alert all the time. Getting in to the control room of an actual airport may be out of scope for most commoners but thanks to Offscreen, you can now get a feel of the same, right from your 5800s.
The objective of the gameplay simple: to land bigger (blue airplanes) on the longer landing strip and the smaller (yellow) airplanes on the shorter landing strip by drawing trajectory patterns for the planes. While the game looks simple, it gets complicated as you play with a myriad of planes flying-in from all directions.
What we like?
- Innovative concept for a mobile game
- Level of difficulty is optimum
What we don’t like?
- Absence of sound effects
- Not optimized for finger-touch game-play
Airport Touch is an interesting concept for a mobile game and while its not really as good as the previous games from Offscreen when it comes to graphics and UI, gameplay is engrossing and entertaining. We would definitely give this game a “must have”, but the absence of audio and finger touch optimization prevent us from doing it. However, the game is still a good deal for its gameplay and since its free, there is nothing wrong in giving it a spin on your 5800s.
