[prMac.com] Beijing, China - Time flies; planes fly. Nearly two months after the debut of Flight Tycoon version 1.9, Dreamingame co., ltd, developer of a wide range of iOS games, released its version 2.0 on App Store. The new version has revolutionary significance in many ways, to which the developer not only added new planes and items, but also introduced new gaming systems.
As a simulation game themed on airport management, Flight tycoon appeals to many casual sim fans, accumulating millions of downloads worldwide since its initial global release in May 2011. How does it gain such popularity? The flexible and addictive gameplay, streamlined user interface, vivid animation and fascinating in-game events play a part, but social component defines its core attractiveness. In version 2.0, this feature is further enhanced.
"We hope players are more involved in interaction with their friends, rather than simply 'communicating' with the game menu." says Qi Fu, lead producer of Flight Tycoon. " So we have made lots of modifications in version 2.0 to encourage players to communicate with friends."
Actions say louder than words. One notable change in Flight Tycoon version 2.0 is the introduction of "Daily task system". The system randomly gives players three tasks. Players accumulate activity points by completing tasks, and once their activity points reach a certain mark on the meter, they can unlock a reward box and then collect rewards. Various rewards are waiting for players, including fuel, money, exp points and mastery cards. More importantly, with varied tasks, this system aims at encouraging interaction between players. You may need to refuel your friends' planes, collect flight earnings for them, or help them to collect rents. Simply put, if you give assistance to friends in the game, the system will give you bonuses.
Another eye-catching change is functional modification of spraying. In previous versions, the effect of spraying is limited to appearance change, while in version 2.0, players gain tremendous advantages by spraying terminals, airport ramps and planes. Spraying planes will improve flight speed, while spraying ramps enables you to earn much more per flight. And if you spray the terminal, each time planes landed on your airport (including your own and your friends' planes), they will gain extra exp points by 10 percent.
It seems every time Dreamingame updates this game, our imaginations are pushed forward a little bit. So how far will they fly? To the outer space? Truth is, UFO already has a space in version 2.0.
Anytime and anywhere, you can share the flying dream with friends. Flight Tycoon makes you believe you can fly, and the more fascinating part is, in the world of Flight Tycoon, you will never fly alone.
