Airport – not just for anoraks!

I love this game! It’s a tablet / phone game and so addictive! If you’d like to download it, search for “Airport Terminal” – it’s by a company called Meriden. Not to be confused with many other games of a similar name.

The basics

You’re a people manager. Your job is to get everyone through the various parts of the airport without passengers getting angry. You have lots of different types of passenger (old people = angry, celebrities = need to be served quickly, students = chilled etc) who have specific requirements (check in 1st class > caf’é > restroom > gift shop etc).

There are two parts to each level: firstly, check in. Once everyone is through, you go to security. Each different part of the airport has a problem to solve, a mini game. You must complete the mini game in order for the passenger to progress through the airport. They’re not hard, but managing it becomes your headache. Of course, you need to get everyone through before take-off!

Each level grants you cash which you can use to speed up the process, complete the mini game automatically or increase happiness rates.
