Just when you thought you may finally be able to kick your Flight Control addiction, Firemint reaches into their bag of tricks and pulls out yet another reason for you to keep playing one of the most addicting casual games available in the App Store.
Yesterday evening Flight Control was updated to 1.3, which a adds peer-to-peer multiplayer mode via Bluetooth. The new peer-to-peer multiplayer mode allows you to share Flight Control duties with a friend. One of you will only be allowed to land the red aircraft while the other will only be allowed to land blue and yellow, but the catch is that all three colors of aircraft will appear on both of your screens. Since you won’t be able to land all aircraft, you must direct those that you can’t land onto your friend’s screen, which will require you to work well together or you will crash and burn.
Peer-to-peer via Bluetooth is only available on the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and the second generation iPod touch. The original iPhone and iPod touch do not support peer-to-peer multiplayer via Bluetooth.
Another addition to the game, albeit a small one, is that you can now purchase Flight Control merchandise via the “more” button. The products only consist of various Flight Control beverage containment devices at this time.
Flight Control is available in the App Store for $.99.
