Nice concept for a casual game, hindered by massive amounts of bugs or odd design choices. Planes will crash in places where the game says they can't (untouched planes in the air, planes taxiing), they will go weird places while taxiing, and get stuck. Planes will frequently ignore your orders and land on whatever runway they see fit, even changing their minds several times. Most of these bugs will cause a blockage or a crash, either of which will end your game in most modes. For the most part, you'll lose a lot of levels through little fault of your own.
Airport Madness allows you to take on the role of an air traffic controller at real life airports. When the game starts you can choose which airport you want to play on, some being more difficult than others and having different amounts of terminals and runways, you can go to ones in London, New York, Dubai, Honolulu, etc. After selecting an airport you can choose from different game modes, you can play on a continuous mode, one that requires you to move 50 planes, a time trial, and one that starts slow and gets more difficult over time. After choosing a mode you also get three different difficulty options to choose from. Gameplay gives you a top down view of the airport and has you chooing where planes land and take over, having them line up on different runways, avoiding crashes between landing planes and planes taking off, and working with planes of different speeds and sizes. After landing planes will drop of passengers and cargo, refuel, and will then need to take off again. Graphics are nice and simple, it is easy to see what is going on, the buildings around the airport remind me of looking at a city in Sim City. Sound is minimal, you will hear air traffic controllers repeat the same lines to planes. The game will track your score, efficiency, and how many planes you have moved. It's important to keep things running or you will start having planes pile up and unable to move. It's a fun game if the theme interests you but it is pretty simple.
