If you are looking for a flight simulator style game for your BlackBerry 10 smartphone you've come to the right place. Flight Theory is available for all BlackBerry 10 devices and brings with it beautiful, stunning graphics and a whole bunch of challenges.

Let me get one thing of my chest first of all. The buttons/tabs within the menu of the game are pretty laggy and as you'll see in the video I managed to not select the mission I even wanted. Hopefully this will be fixed with an update but don't be put off by it as once the game is up and running things are perfect.

When you first launch the game there is a tutorial which is well worth checking out. The game isn't complicated but it's an advantage to get familiar with the controls. To start with you will only have one aircraft available to you. As you progress through the levels others will be unlocked. The same applies for the missions. It does take a bit of getting used to playing the game but after a few crash landings I soon got the hang of it and have now unlocked a bunch of missions.

When it comes to the missions there is some nice variety - with take offs and landings on both land and on an aircraft carrier, or if you prefer just to chill out you can jump into the free flight mode and just relax and enjoy the flight.

Flight Theory is priced at £2.00/$2.99 and is well worth the money if you like this style of game. I absolutely love it!

Full features include:

  • Virtual 3D cockpits.
  • Dynamic skies. Choose your favorite time to fly - early morning, evening, or night? Choose a random time and watch the sun and moon cross the sky as you fly.
  • Land on aircraft carriers and airfields.
  • Detailed 3D terrain. Soar over mountains, valleys, trees, and rivers.
  • Unlockable airfields and missions. Completing one mission unlocks the next in the series. Each mission can be replayed with random start and end locations.
  • Online leaderboards and achievements. Each landing is scored by a number of factors. Line up perfectly, land gently, and you'll be rewarded with a great score!
  • Focus on realism and fun. Flight Theory simulates stalls, lift, drag, flaps, and more.
  • Free Flight mode.
  • World War 1 / World War 2 era aircraft and more.

LAGGY buttons.. takes me like 5 min to finally start the game.
Also its an android port which would explain the laggy buttons. Also very difficult to fly for me. Plane constantly crashes while trying to takeoff.. when i finally do its impossible for me to raise the nose of the plane to get over the mountains.

I find unresponsive touch buttons to be a recurring issue with my Q10. I'm kind of glad to see it doesn't appear to be a fault with my particular phone.

I end up having to play piano on the screen, like we see in the video far too often

Wow, you weren't kidding about the menu buttons, James! They are bl00dy awful!
Once you get past that, and you remember to calibrate, this is a nice looking flight sim. But until these menus are actually navigable (it's more like Russian roulette now), I don't think this game is worth paying for.

James, I am sorry to say. I have seen many of your reviews and you always seem to have problems pressing buttons. May be this one has got awful buttons, but next time you may try pressing it slowly & precisely. Thanks for the review. Cheers.

Another app which would be better used on 7" screen.
But tablets will disappear in 5 years, according to Thorsten, so why to bother.

I'm getting sick of laggy buttons on all the ports. When I first got my Q10 I thought my screen was malfunctioning. Not downloading it.
