Flight Control succces on iPhone
Firemint has announced that its Flight Control game for the iPhone and iPod touch has reached over 1.5 million sales. Released onto the App Store on March 5th, the game has since achieved the top paid app position in 20 different countries including the USA, Germany, UK and Canada. The company has released several free updates with new features such as multiplayer support.
Flight Control is an air traffic control game where players must guide planes and helicopters onto their respective landing strips. It comes with three different airfields and nine aircraft types.
With all the success Firemint has had over the past six months, the developer still has a little while to go before catching up to Gameloft's recent announcement of over 6 million games sold on the App Store. However, both still pale in comparison to overall App Store numbers, which, as of approximately 2 months ago, surpassed 1.5 billion downloads.
Flight Control is regularly priced at $3 but is currently available from the App Store for a limited time price of $1.
