Flight Control Rocket
Price: $0.99 - Download from iTunes
Publisher: Electronic Arts
Flight Control Rocket is the follow-up to Firemint's original Flight Control game that has graced a number of different platforms, including the PlayStation 3. After the success of the first game, it was only a matter of time before a sequel arrived. Flight Control Rocket not only improves upon the already solid formula, but adds some of the most vibrant and colorful visuals available on the new iPad, as well as a new Sci-Fi theme. The new ships add a layer of strategy, while still remaining fun as hell. There is one caveat: The game constantly asks you to purchase coins, freemium-style. But the game isn't free, it's $0.99, so it's a bummer to be bombarded with microtransactions. However, when comparing Flight Control Rocket to the rest of the games on our list, $0.99 is a steal—and enough to have you not mind those pesky microtransactions as much. Hopefully, EA smartens up and creates a more expensive version (can you believe I'm wanting a costlier version?) that does away with the microtransactions.
