Description

*

This game is quite simple, tilt to control the plane (it controls like X-Plane), the game is a scavenger hunt so you have to find the landmarks. For example flying just over the peak of the mountain reveals a landmark as does flying under the archway. This is an example game that demonstrates the basic principles of physics, 3D modeling, level design, etc. It's up to readers to take the principles established by this book and polish them into a great game. Making great games is an art. Good luck and happy game making!

*

Take off into the wild blue yonder over a chain of tropical islands. Maneuver your seaplane into barrel rolls, flips, and through narrow passage ways as you attempt to find all of paradise's secret landmarks.

This is very confusing.

:
First, the controlls are terrible. And where are the landmarks? If you are teaching people how to make iPhone games, make sure they don't fill the app store with games as bad as this one.

2/5 stars

The game should be better.

:
Playing this game has connived me not to get this book. Please work on the game.

2/5 stars

Ummm

:
Okay I ignored the first comment and downloaded. I was completely disappointed terrible terrible controls. But there are landmarks it's when they tell you information and it'll say # of 10 or whatever. But I wish the landmarks were actual flags or something instead of just flying there it's quite annoying. 2 stars cuz it's free and cud actually b rlly fun..:(
