Reviewers comments

Flight Simulator Xtreme is a game in which the player controls one of five different aircrafts through a series of missions. The player maneuvers the plane via the gyroscopic controls of the device that they are playing on. Missions range from basic takeoff/landing missions to advanced flights involving GPS Navigation. This game heavily features in-app purchasing, with four of the five in-game planes requiring the player purchase them individually to use them within the app. The player also has the option to remove advertisements from the game by spending real money. In this app, advertisements appear as both banner ads and full-screen ads.   They appear frequently, require player action to close them, and are disruptive to the app experience.

In App purchasing

This game has extensive in-app purchasing, ranging in price from $1.05 (to remove advertisements), up to $4.99 (to purchase the most expensive plane which players can use within the game.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
