So is anyone else playing this interesting puzzler? I picked it up on sale and I am rather enjoying it, even if I do stink at it. I just got my sixth conveyor and it's hard. Frustrating, but still fun.
Amazingly, the game doesn't penalize you horribly if you screw up...I've missed a number of planes or sorted luggage incorrectly and still have a good bit of cash in the bank.
I got the game for $3. I got the international airport and quit soon after that; I don't know if I'll get back to it. It's a little bit too much like Order Up! for me: manage all these tasks at once, keeping an eye on the timer. How is this a game!? It's work!
The fifth conveyor threw me for a loop, especially once you have VIPs whose luggage needs to be sorted based on tag color, not bag color (that just frustrated me, but I eventually figured it out). The learning curve is very steep in this game, and it could have used a couple of more tutorials.
It does start to feel like work, but it's still fun. It tests my skill and concentration. It's like an extended Brain Age puzzle or something. I have a feeling it will keep ramping up until it gets unbelievably difficult, though... and there is no way to go back and play easier difficulty without restarting your save file.
Anyone remember what the ARM button does? I forgot and it doesn't do anything obvious when pressed.
I've unlocked four planes in the hangar for getting combos (Narrow 01, Narrow 02, Wide 01, and Wide 02). I had Air Force One unlocked before I started over (to get these planes easier) and I got that by handling all of the President's Luggage while disposing of a bomb.
The game gets hectic, but I'm starting to "get" it now, and nailing combos are satisfying. I tend to load a couple of bags on a plane at a time, usually working from the bottom up. I've gotten several Tetra Combos. I'm assuming I unlock more planes with Penta Combos (six in a row) and whatever seven in a row is. Man...
This is frustrating, but fun. I'll probably review it next week.
I think you need both Power-Ups (do a double combo, one per working day) once you're a Domestic Airport. You can just get a double combo then quit early. You'll still get the upgrade. I did the same thing to get the planes I have in the Hangar.
