Flight Control HD's almost secret feature

Ooops, I posted this in the wrong section previously, Flight Control HD is now live, so this is where it should go.

We don't mention or show this feature in the App description because we don't want people to evaluate the game on the basis of a gimmick. Nevertheless we thought it was really cool so we added a map to the game that is '3D', and I mean 3D in the retro sense .



So if you have some red-cyan glasses, be sure to check it out!



You can get red/cyan anaglyph glasses at amazon.com and many other retailers.

Is this the first 3D game for iPad/iPhone?

Now that is cool, too bad I had eye surgery when I was a kid so I can't enjoy the Red/Blue 3D glasses. Anyone tried this?

iPhone 3G S 16GB

No, I think Gameprom's pinball games implemented 3D in their last updates.

I hope they add more 3D maps! Game is way more fun on the iPad!

I was holding out on this one but I'm glad I bought it. Graphics look good. It's relaxing and easier to play on the big screen.

I am interested in picking this game up but mainly for the two player, single iPad modes.

The 2 player mode is a blast, especially when you get competitive

It was a cute gimmick, to be sure, but I think I'd rather they go the Gameprom way of having all existing maps 3D viewable in 3D or not (basically allow the player to set the 3D view in options so that those who don't want to bother with the 3D won't have a bunch of maps they can't use and those who do like it can have them ALL in 3D).
