Firemint releases free, ad-supported Flight Control to App Store


Firemint confirmed today that it is launching a free, ad-supported version of its popular Flight Control game for the iPhone and iPod touch. The app has received the rubber stamp of approval from Apple and should appear on the App Store in the upcoming days. The free version has the same gameplay as the paid version but limits several salient features. Multiple maps are not available in the free version, but you can play on the original map without any time or score limits. Multiplayer, both local and online, are missing from the free version as well.

The free version does support the iOS Game Center leaderboard and includes a limited number of achievements. If you choose not to use Game Center or are running an earlier version of iOS without Game Center, you can still post your achievements to Firemint's leaderboard. In the end, the free version is a nice alternative for those who want to try the game before they hand a dollar over to Apple and Firemint for the full version. It is also a chance for Firemint to compare two revenue models -- paid and ad-supported -- to see which generates the most cash.
