Looks pretty sick. Like the stylized graphics. Anyone know what the point of the gameplay is?

Whoa!! This game is very nice. I just picked it up and am playing through for the second time after crashing two planes the first.

Drawing the flight paths is very satisfying. The game is easily worth 99 cents.

It is a nice little pick up and play game, but I don't think consumers will accept the proposed $2.99 price increase when ATC 4.0 cost $2.99
