Arcade flight simulation games - recommendations

Post by Kranzer » Wed Nov 08, 2017 9:29 am

Hi,

I've been looking a simple flight sim games that a kid could play on a PC with gamepad or on a mobile.

I found that Take Off - The Flight Simulator recently is this kind of game. It has also iOS/Android version and recently it was released on Steam for PC and MAC. Biggest advantages that it runs on weaker machines and it is cheap to buy for all platforms.

There are also similar games such as Infinite Flight, Aerofly 2, X Plane 10. Do you know any other titles similar?

(At this stage, I get more enjoyment coding for this game then playing it. Weird right?)

Well, that's an, um, interesting introductory message.

I had a free-to-play game called Avion Flight Sim on my Android phone to keep me entertained when I couldn't use YSF or MSFS, but I found the controls too annoying on my phone.

Sorry guys, didn't realize I need a longer introduction here :) My name is Paul. I'm kinda new in the simulation games and I've only heard about few bigger titles. I was looking for something simple for mobile/PC that also a kid could play with me.
Once I get to known with few easier titles, I could also check out more complicated games.

@Neocon - thanks for the tip, I'll check it out!

I recommend YS Flight. I heard it's really awesome and FREE! Seems like it fits your needs just perfectly. There's even an online community and multiplayer for it!

Uh....

YSFlight? This is a YSFLIGHT forum. :roll:

If you're looking for other games, this is not the forum for you.
