Did you ever dream of flying your own plane when you were younger? You can now achieve that childhood dream, just not really in real life, though. In Air Mail, you can fly your own plane and learn all there is to aviation.
In Air Mail, you learn the basics of flying a plane, thanks to your iPod Touch/iPhone. Don’t worry, if you’ve never flown a plane before, there is a handy tutorial for you in the beginning that teaches you the basics. But it’s not really that easy.
As you play the game, you want to become a pilot who is fearless and will deliver mail to the various homes. There are three game modes: Mission Mode, Extreme Mode, and Explore Mode. Mission Mode contains seven different chapters with beautiful graphics and environments. Extreme Mode is a type of ‘attack mode’ where you want to get the highest score possible. Explore Mode is what the name implies - you get to explore and find those lovely hidden items.
Air Mail is a game that where I liked the graphics, but I just absolutely hated those controls. Especially the tilt control function. Goodness gracious, that tilt control was just so sensitive. Even when I changed the settings for the tilt control to not be so sensitive, just any movement would make my plane go in a different way. And it wasn’t fun. So it was easy to go in the wrong direction but when I was trying to right my way to go in the correct way and…well, it was much more difficult to go in the right direction. That shouldn’t be right - why is it more difficult to go in the right direction than it is to go in the wrong direction? Oh wait, that’s how life is.
Because it was really irritating for me when I couldn’t control the plane, I stopped playing because I just couldn’t handle the plane going in the wrong direction most of the time or not be able to move as easily as I wanted. Unfortunate, though, since the game has a fun premise.
