The pb being, if you don't "get" the game, throwing money at PP won't really help. And as we've seen, with a good strategy, you don't need in app purchase at all, unless to thank NB for a great game.
The cuteness and attention to details I expected from NB, but I'm impressed by the depth of PP.
Never played PF though.
Didn't make a lot of bux because, as you noted, the "difficulty curve" (plus the weird logic pointed out in the analysis [i.e. bigger planes don't necessarily make more $$ unless one is highly disciplined & has a strategy] doesn't work for many. My fingernails are frayed but still hanging on.
IMO you're right, it's not a matter of "throwing money" at the game -- you NEED a strategy
. Simple concept but confusing to actual concoct one (barring the reading of this forum, that is!) Previously NB gamers, playing other games, didn't need a strategy, just patience. There's a huge difference.
Futher, cute in TT is wherever you look. Cute in PP is a random plane flying upside down. So, yes, PP has depth but TT has the cuteness factor in spades (among other things).
As for PF for you, I dunno. Great forum. Inordinately generous people. Mild to moderate strategy. Still, if you're into really challenging, heart-thumping competition games. doubt it's for you. And THIS in spite of the fact that I have enjoyed PF over the years (yes, years -I'm not even a serious player!).

Take one of your plane and put in your hanger.
Pay the amount of bux to fly it again and place it Denver or the near by airport you just bought. Try that and if that works for you. Also collect every bux job you see. Those things add up and have sweet payouts the more you collect.
Hope that helps!
This is exactly the type of player referenced in the article who, without guidance, might give up altogether.
Understand (& this is a real compliment), this forum is composed of truly unique people who have the dedication, persistence, logic, & wherewithal to experiment with various strategies in a scientific way which makes them über-players.
Enormous respect for the brainpower in this group.
