The seventh version of Airport Madness offers players 3-dimensional game play from a control tower perspective. You get to sit in a virtual swivel chair, able to pan around the airfield with the drag of your mouse. Choose good weather or bad, adjust the tower height to your preference, then do your best to manage jet traffic in and out of four different real-world airports, with more on the way soon.
Listen to human pilot voices as they obey your every command. Watch as the animated windsocks react to gusty winds. Scan your radar screens for potential collisions.
Airport Madness 3D has similar game play mechanic to the rest of the series. In this version each airport offers two separate traffic patterns, a huge step upwards from previous versions of Airport Madness.
