Airport CEO - PC

BACK OF THE BOX QUOTE

“Build Your Very Own Luton Airport!”

TYPE OF GAME
Airport CEO puts you in total control of every aspect of running a brand new, built from the ground up, Airport. 
It’s essentially an Airport Tycoon & Management game

LIKED

I really enjoyed laying down the foundations of my new airport literally from the ground up on a blank canvas of cleared land. 
The freedom you have is brilliant and enables you to build a one of a kind creation each time.
When the first few planes land and take off from your humble runway it feels damn good!
The UI and feel of the game is clean crisp and sharp and I really bought into the games aesthetic immediately, excellent design!

DISLIKED

  1. The tutorial is not robust enough and trial & error is the chosen route to working things out.

  2. This would be okay if the controls were more intuitive but they take a whole heap of time to get used to.
  3. I ended up watching some YouTube gameplay videos in order to understand the fundamentals of the game that much better.
  4. I think the devs could benefit from putting some official tutorials on the Airport CEO website to help people get started.

DEVELOPER

Apoapsis Studios based in Sweden Malmo (hence the beautiful UI design)

PLATFORMS

PC Steam Early Access

RELEASE DATE

Early Access since 2017 - £14 

PLAYED

Around 3 hours tinkering with runways, plane stands and taxiing routes, good times 

Summary
  • If you’re a fan of Tycoon / Mangement sims this could turn out to be the game for you. 
  • Get in there now with some early access for  14 quid and you can also shape the future of the game with the incredibly open Game Devs who publicly chart their progress on the Airport CEO development blog.
  • This is an Early Access Melting rating with the potential for it to become an Ice Cool after some development tweaks and improvements to the tutorial.


“Right, I’m off to dig out some runway foundations and purchase a de-icing truck for the winter”
