Basic, expensive, pointless,

This review is from: Airplane! (App)
I'm not sure why this has such good reviews. The controls are so basic that the planes don't behave like planes. For me that takes most of the fun of a flight simulator away right there.
The gameplay is no better. Flying from Zurich to Bristol sounds like a fun trip but then you see that both those airports are on small islands with no other features. So is every airport in the game, for that matter.
Since taking off is pretty much automatic (assuming you put the throttle to full and keep straight), the trips are all single directions to another island, and the controls are limited, the only real challenge is landing the plane... and it even offers to do this for you! Although in fairness you do forfeit some coins by doing this.
Coins, you say? Coins are the reward for completing missions, but from what I can see, they serve no real purpose. Unlocking more than 5 planes requires real money - and quite a lot of it - but there isn't enough gameplay to justify these.
Fun to play, once, but you'll be wanting more, and it's not on offer here.
