The adaptation of the worldwide hit game is out now on PlayStation®Network featuring multiplayer PlayStation®Move motion controller support, stereoscopic 3D mode and 1080p graphics.
The game starts gradually, but players will need keen eyes, steady hands and smart strategy to keep their airspace under control once planes arrive thick and fast. A fast-forward setting can speed everything up even more, for complete chaos that will challenge even the most advanced players. Players have the option to fly solo or play collaboratively with friends, in a party-style multiplayer mode for up to four people. New players can join in the game at will in drop-in, drop-out style while aircraft continue to arrive.
Flight Control HD's distinctive retro graphics also soar to new heights on PlayStation®3, with upgraded art and effects in glorious 1080p resolution. Flight Control HD also supports an optional stereoscopic 3D mode* throughout the game, with aircraft appearing to float over the landscape.
Players can control 16 different aircraft types including jets, sea planes and helicopters, across 9 maps, with 4 super-sized maps including the PlayStation® exclusive "Metropolis" map that cycles through day and night. Other maps include an Australian outback landscape, where emergency air ambulances take precedence over player-controlled aircraft; an aircraft carrier that slowly rotates, while a range of fast military aircraft attempt landings; and a windy winter wonderland, where drifting snow and a windsock indicate the prevailing wind direction and runways close and reopen accordingly.
In classic "just one more go" style, Flight Control HD challenges players to beat their personal best scores. Multiple local profiles and extensive online leaderboards and PSN integration also mean players can compete against their friends or the best in the world, and collect numerous Trophies to display on their PSN profile.
Flight Control HD can be played using the PlayStation®Move motion controller, together with the PlayStation®Eye camera - the PlayStation®Move navigation controller is not required. The game can also be played using the DUALSHOCK®3 or SIXAXIS™ Wireless Controllers, and multiplayer games can use any combination of the supported controllers.
