Another super game hits BlackBerry World - this time it's Panic Flight for BlackBerry 10

By James Richardson on 27 Feb 2013 03:39 pm EST

Do you fancy taking on the role as an airline pilot? You can with Panic Flight which has made its way to BlackBerry 10 and it shows us how great gaming can now be on the big screen of the Z10. The game involves you piloting passenger jets from one city to another. That does't sound much fun on its own but of course there is more to it than just that. Storm clouds are the main issue. With only a certain amount of fuel onboard you will need to avoid the clouds as they will slow your plane down. Go through too many and you may not have enough fuel to finish the flight. That's a bad thing.

Along the way there are plenty of hazards that you must also try to avoid such as tornados and random skulls. On the flip side there are also bonus icons to collect which will give you a boost. It's all about the money with Panic Flight. In addition to picking up gold coins along the way you will also be rewarded at the end with some hard cash. You can save this up and put it towards a new, bigger plane.

Controlling the jet is simple. Just drag your finger across the screen to guide it. You can even perform a loop-the-loop which comes in handy sometimes for collecting items as looping around it will automatically pick it up. Just avoid those naughty storm clouds.

Panic Flight is priced at £2.00/$2.99 and it really is a sweet game. Things can get pretty hectic as you whizz through the air but if you fancy a challenge then you will love the game. The only downside I came across was that the menu was a bit laggy. Luckily the game isn't so fear not.

Another super game hits BlackBerry World - this time it's Panic Flight for BlackBerry 10


Having game apps on BB10 platform is great, but i believe BBRY should be working on getting major social apps too. There are less than 15% of the top IOS and Android apps present on BB10 platform. As said, QNX is easy to write apps for/on, if these major apps companies are not willing to make native apps, BBRY shld take it a step further by developing these apps and presenting it to them. these developers have a lot to gain from being on BB10, but BBRY has even more to gain if they can show that they have big name apps. the platform is only 27days old but pundits are making it look like its 28months old. we need to be a step ahead of the game if BBRY wants BB10 to succeed. thats just my opinion tho

I agree with you 100%. I know blackberry is trying very hard on the developer front, and I think ultimately the tide will turn for them... but it's still very much an uphill battle. I suspect that by US launch that percentage of top apps will be above the 50% mark (just a guess).

". There are less than 15% of the top IOS and Android apps present on BB10 platform. "

Not disputing the app gap issue, but where did you get this number from?

It's very unfortunate that people have a habit of making up statistics, trends and/or misinterpreting what is published. But such is the way of life on talkback forums.

I was talking to some folks about BlackBerry10 while getting my taxes done today. It was about ten people there and not one of them had even a clue that BlackBerry was launching a new OS.

I hope BlackBerry have a plan to market these devices in the U.S
