Summary

Fun game! Recommended for planes lovers...

The Good

Great comic graphics - the quality of the graphics is really good, reminding old adventure games. There's a lot of humor and fun stuff - and a few hidden places as well. You can see all kind of passengers walking around (some of them are really weird), and if they bought a ticket, you can follow them to the gates, where they wait, and finally enter the plane and take off. The business model is quite ok, also it does get a bit repetitive after a while. Gladly, Spellbound entered a few things to make it more fun and competitive - like earning money to buy components to build an space shuttle. It's the little things that make this game funny and fun.

The Bad

It might stop entertain you too fast, especially if you don't love airplanes, airlines, or business games. Other than that, I can't find much bad things about the game... Not major ones, at least.

The Bottom Line

A fun, cheap game - recommended if you're looking for a great tycoon game.
