Have you ever dreamed of designing your own plane but never really got around to studying all the math stuff involved? Did you plan to become a pilot but maybe your eyesight or lack of hand eye coordination prevent you from becoming one? You can live out your aviator dreams through a new Android game called SimplePlane, but it's anything but actually simple.
With a little bit of physics, some design sensibility, and your vivid imagination, you can make the airplane of your dreams come true, well, virtually. The game gives you the tools and the parts, all you have to do is string them together and build planes like warbirds from World War II, civilian aircraft, fighter jets, and basically anything you can think of that flies (yes, you can even make a dragon plane hybrid if you want to). Just remember that all the changes and features you make will actually affect how the plane flies, and that is pretty important.
It is crucual because not only do you get to build your dream plane, you get to pilot it as well. You can choose to fly it in Sandbox Mode where there are no restrictions. If one of your engines blows up, you can still go full throttle, well as full as you can go with just one engine. There are also challenges you can take up, like landing on aircraft carriers, avoiding surface-to-air missiles, obstacle courses for planes, etc.
In terms of design, there are pre-built themes available, but of course you can go as crazy as you can on your own. You can buy SimplePlanes from the Google Play Store for only $1.99. There are no in-app purchases necessary, and you can access the planes that other users have created, even if they made it on a different platform. Just go to SimplePlanes.com to browse and download them.
