A big thanks to Goose for this one, i have been playing it all morning and as yet have been unable to land the Dash-8 without one of wheels falling off!!
Very simply, the idea is to land the Dash-8 on the runway, using the direction keys and A for up and Z for down. The idea is to centre the plane in the yellow shape on the right before gradually lowering the plane onto the tarmac. Take too long and you over shoot the runway; come in too steep and you take the nose off.
It is Danish so it can take a little to negotiate around, just make sure you hit the yellow tabs and you should be fine!
For this one i have to thank Flight Global as i first saw it there. The Paper Airplane challenge game from Microsoft is just fantastic fun, as you just press your mouse on the paper plane and easy as you like try and fling it across the office and out of the window, where it can go a very long way. For ages i couldn't even get it out of the window so my tip is to fling it as hard and as low as you can (without hitting any furniture) because once it is free from the first room it can go a distance. You can also create a league if anybody is interested.
My current best is about 80m but i think that is pretty rubbish really compared to how far you can throw it.
I was quite surprised when i came to AirSpace and saw a new blogs section, and was pretty unsure about what i could write about. As a guy who likes to play the odd game or two, i thought i would share some coffee break games that i like to play in my lunch hour when the boss isn't looking.
This first one i like because if nothing else it shows how crap i am at geography. It is a Virtual Pilot game, where you have three rounds to direct flights to different locations in Europe. It gets gradually harder as the amount of information given diminishes with every round, as does the time given for you to make the decision.
My best score is currently 22,748, which i don't think is too shabby at all. Maybe if people are interested, we can create a league table of scores; but for now just leave them underneath, with any games suggestions as i am always up for not doing work!!
