I might buy this. Will it be the same price as Flight Control HD for the iPad?

Will this also be the first line drawing game on a desktop? Hard to imagine the "fun" factor with a mouse and or mouse pad.

The controls will probably be pretty awkward, but I imagine it should work fairly well on the Macbooks' trackpad.

Yeah I'm really curious to see how they work the controls as well.

You might be able to use the magic trackpad in your hand which would feel like using an ipad.

Sort of like playing partially blind, don't you think? Guess we can adapt.

Yeah, not touching the screen directly seems really awkward... I wonder how it played on ps3.

You must need some kind of onscreen targeting reticle and multitouch wont work too well :/

Not really blind. You just use your cursor to move where ever you want and then draw the line by keeping the mouse/trackpad button clicked I guess. But ya, it wont be as simple and easy as it's on an iDevice.
