Flight Control is one of the most successful games on the App Store, having sold more than 2 million copies since it was first released on March 6 last year. Like all of the other existing apps, the current version will run just fine on Apple’s new iPad, but the Firemint guys say “we want to ensure a delightful experience on iPad that feels just right.”
“We started developing Real Racing before the iPhone 3G was announced,” they continued. “Similarly, we are already building our next generation of games for higher definition, more powerful devices than are available today. We like to imagine what the devices of tomorrow will be capable of, and invest in bringing our games to the next generation of hardware. The iPad announcement and Apple’s A4 chip have come at a fantastic time for us. We are working on some incredibly fun and exciting games that will look amazing on iPad and take full advantage of its features, as well as working brilliantly on iPhone and iPod touch.”
After taking the iPhone and iPod touch by storm, Flight Control appears headed for the iPad.
