Reflective Layer releases Air Lane

Posted by Dave Seaman on Friday, 26 August 2011

Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA – August 25, 2011 – Reflective Layer today announced the release of Air Lane, a casual air traffic control simulator.

Air Lane is an air traffic control game that lets the gamer guide approaching aircraft to designated runways. This is achieved by drawing a path from the aircraft to the runway. Upon landing of an aircraft the gamer gets paid certain amount of money. The challenge of Air Lane is to avoid mid-air collisions as the air space becomes crowded.

The game features special points along a flight path called Speed Beads. These beads allows a gamer to control the speed of an aircraft at that point.

Air Lane ships with four types of game mode called Work Load. Each work load offers a unique opportunity for the gamer to tackle a specific situation facing the airport. An example of a work load is the United Nations Special Session. In this situation the airport is visited by Heads of State from over 12 nations. As each Head of State aircraft arrives, a ceremonial greeting playing the national anthem along with the national flag is initiated. The Head of State aircraft is totally autonomous. The gamer must route other aircraft around the Head of State.


Nations: Head of State aircraft from over 12 nations visits airport, complete with anthem and flag.

Play Modes: There are 4 challenging play modes.
Calm Day, United Nations Special Session, Migrating Birds, Medical Emergency.
Each mode presents a unique challenge and consequence. This is in addition to
directing aircraft safely to the runway.

Speed Beads: With speed beads a gamer can slow down
an aircraft for a specific section of its flight path.

Airports: 3 airports in unique climate zones.
Farmville, Seaside, Arctic Circle. Each airport features its own visual style as
well as runway configuration.

Aircraft: 4 aircraft types each having a
specific speed, runway requirement and purpose.

Air Lane is available for $1.99 for Android. It may be downloaded from the Google Market Place

A Mac and Windows version will be available in the first half of September 2011.
