What did you like about it?

Pocket Planes is an easy to play game that will definitely take up hours of your time.  Your main goal is to manage and grow your fleet of planes as they fly people and cargo to over 250 cities all across the globe.  There are a variety of planes including tiny prop planes to jumbo jets.  You can also customize the paint job and pilot uniforms for each plane.  Once you get your fleet going, you can trade plane parts with your friends and compete in world wide events.  Want to know how you stack up against other players?

Each time you fly people and cargo to a certain destination, you earn currency. However, planes have a certain cost for flying certain routes so it’s paramount that you find the most profitable destinations.  As the game progresses, you’ll have to get better plans that can hold more people and cargo.

What didn’t you like about it?

I liked everything about this game; however, it can get a little redundant the longer you play.  Make sure you keep upgrading your planes to keep the game interesting!
