Flight Control Rocket landing on your Lumia this morning

Published by at

Alongside Blobster, Nokia have also released Flight Control Rocket, an updating of the original Flight Control concept by Firemint. You'll be steering your rockets, lunar landers, and capsules, bringing them safely into land, avoiding the extra-terrestrials, pesky asteroids, and more hazards than you can shake any of the fifteen spacecraft at.

The gameplay is subtly changed from Flight Control, and unfortunately there is no trial version available for this Xbox Live title - a situation that we've only seen once before on Cut The Rope (another big cross-platform title) and that dulls my excitement a little. Mind you, on other platforms Flight Control Rocket has taken a freemium approach and I think I prefer the flat fee than being slowly nickle and dimed to generate revenue.
