One of the most complex airline manager games – simply titled Airlines Manager: Tycoon, makes its way to mobile starting today. The game was already available as a web application, but I am sure that the move to mobile is beneficial for everybody. If you’re looking for complexity, variety and high quality gameplay on mobile, Airlines Manager: Tycoon is the perfect choice. Of course, if you dig the tycoon genre.
Here’s the official word from the press release we’ve received earlier today:
Airlines Manager: Tycoon puts players in the CEO seat at a fledgling airline where they must take care of marketing, research and development, finances, and growth. Upon launching the game, players have the option of choosing between the deeper, analytic Pro mode and the new Tycoon mode that runs seven times faster than the original and is specially designed for mobile pick-up-and-play.
In other words, this is a game that requires commitment but also offers great rewards. It’s easy to pick up and play the game and you will get hooked instantly. I’m sure you have a lot of time on your hands anyway, so there should be no problems overall! And the level of depth is indeed impressive.
Starting with just $300 million, budding airline moguls purchase aircraft, schedule flights, manage services, and attract passengers. Using powerful reports and analysis tools, they can determine how to maximize profits and fuel expansion via over seven million destinations worldwide. The game offers real-time play across mobile and web platforms, and truly passionate players can experience even deeper levels of management and data analysis by utilizing a powerful free tool in the PC version. Airlines Manager’s simulation depth has even allowed it to be used as a training tool in business schools.
I remember that one of my older favorites – Football Manager – was being used by real clubs worldwide to find young prospects, so it’s not the first time that a game is used in real life. But it does prove that the depth and quality of this simulator/tycoon game is up there, so if you think you can take on the challenge, by my guest. My opinion is that you won’t be disappointed.
Airlines Manager: Tycoon is available for free on Google Play [get] and iTunes [get].
