Firemint gets into the festive spirit with a Christmas update for Spy Mouse and new 'rewind' feature for Flight Control
Be kind rewind
Aussie developer Firemint is getting into the festive spirit early, releasing new updates for its hit Pocket Gamer Silver Award-winning iPhone titles Spy Mouse, Flight control, and Gold Award-winning iPad-only Flight Control HD.
Spy Mouse’s first world has received a seasonal makeover, with plenty of snow and decorations to make things a little more festive. Cheese crumbs are a thing of the past, too. Instead you’ll be chasing after candy canes en route to fighting a now festive-themed first boss.
Line-drawing classic Flight Control, on the other hand, will be getting a slightly less festive 'rewind' feature, allowing players to avert potential disasters.
The update also includes a new map called Storm Airfield (set, unsurprisingly, in a storm) and a 'Thunderstruck' achievement, for those of you (un)lucky enough to have a single aircraft struck by lightning three times.
Meanwhile Flight Control HD is eschewing all pretence of realism and touching down with a new map called Moon Base. It also gets the same 'rewind' ability as its little brother for when everything goes all Apollo 13.
