mapsFiremint has posted two small teaser thumbnails on their Flight Control cloud cell site which seem to represent new maps for their popular Flight Control game.

Flight Control sold over 700,000 copies in the first 7 weeks and remains very highly ranked in the App Store. The company announced back in April that new maps and new aircraft were coming.

The two new thumbnails appear to show an aircraft carrier landing pad as well as the possibility of a water-landing airplane. There's no word on when the new maps will be released into the App Store.

App Store Link: Flight Control, $0.99

Thanks danny95

    from what we can see, we'll get planes that can land on the sea, and army jets to land on a plane carrier. !

    The App Store page for Flight Control says:

    "Watch out for version 1.2 which will include new airports and aircraft."

    They are teasing the update on twitter, and their new facebook page so obviously it's coming. I wonder if it was just submitted today or if it was submitted a while ago and are preparing for a release in the next day or two.

    that's got to be the developer. Last time (when cloudcell went active) you saw someone in curpertino (an apple app tester) playing it and scoring like 17. Once you see that it's a matter of hours before the update will get to everyone.

      I don't think that testers actually play the game, just look at the code. I might be wrong though and have only seen someone mention this who might be as unreliable as me. :-p

      • theishkid

        You are wrong... haha... jk... but seriously, they load every app onto an idevice and test it out, along with any things that might be linking to the device. I was so excited about flightcontrol last time... when I saw the first guy post his score on the cloudcell site and that he was in california... I searched his screen name and it came up on a bunch of other iphone app websites with only one post to test them. He also had a bunch of test pictures from different apps.

    Right now it can change the theme on Flight Control Cloudcell website.
    What a tease!

    Thanks Arn and danny95! To confirm, the update has been submitted and will have two new maps and some new aircraft. I'm going to be posting more details on our Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Flight-Control/97138389456 until it's available so that the wait doesn't get too boring! We had to upload the site updates so that it's all ready for Apple to test. The two scores up there at the moment are me (alexessory) and Rob (schnorg).

    Yippee! I love this game! I have my wife hooked on it and we are constantly battling each other for the high score. I bought it when it first appeared and wrote the first review on iTunes. 5 stars of course! Best game on my iPhone, no other game comes close.
