I don’t play video games at home, nor is my phone loaded up with games, but I LOVE Air Control. Touch the aircraft and drag it to the runway/helipad. There are four different kinds of aircraft — each of the four flies at a different speed. As more aircraft are added to the sky, the flight paths become a tangle. Eventually a couple of the aircraft will collide: game over.
Because the game requires such a high degree of focus, it really clears my head. The game is easy to put down, and it doesn’t take long to play.
Air Control is a completely engrossing, satisfying distraction, and it is free. My high score is 164.
