Widely considered to be one of the most advanced flight simulator games of its time, this mobile title gives you the experience of being a professional aviator, straight from your mobile devices.
If you have a yearning to be a pilot or perhaps have a fascination with airplanes, then X-Plane 10 will not leave you disappointed. Brought to you by Lamina Research, this mobile game‘s aim is to provide a realistic flying experience, even from the touchscreens of your mobiles and tablets. Lamina Research's mission statement is dedicated to providing software that accurately reflects the laws of physics, so with that in mind you can imagine the detailing and attention to flight mechanics that have gone into this free-to-play mobile game.
Aviation enthusiasts will likely recognize the selection of aircraft that is available in this mobile game. Like in Flight Simulator Airplane 3D and Flight Simulator: Fly Plane 3D, this title invites you to learn how to fly a large scope of different flying machines, from the smaller Cessna 172SP with a single piston engine, to the mighty passenger carrying Airbus A320, which is a modern version of the A300 that was first released in 1972. However, if you are feeling more adventurous, then why not try out the F-22 Raptor that can reach speeds of over Mach 2 (that's 680 m/s!) and has an interactive 3D cockpit, from which you can fire missiles, drop bombs and use its rotary cannon? If that’s all a bit too intense for you, don’t fret as you’re not just confined to the cockpit of an aeroplane, you can take a seat behind the controls of helicopter, and cruise around this flight simulator game’s many environments.
Take flight over famous destinations and landmarks, including seascapes, rolling hills, cities and mountain ranges. If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed by the prospect of learning how to fly your own plane, there are many simple tutorials to get you started. What’s more, you can engage in realistic challenges that will test your flying skills or you can play with other wannabe pilots in the multiplayer mode.
X-Plane 10 is free to download and play and is available for iOS mobile and tablets only.
