FeelThere releases highly authentic Tracon! 2012 air traffic control simulator

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

California/USA -- November 2, 2012. Tracon! by FeelThere simulates a Terminal Radar Approach Control and is playable as a single or multiplayer simulator. As TRACON you must assure safe separation between airplanes, sequence the landing flights and make sure to hand them off to the Control Center after you guided them to their departing route. The game website is located at www.atcsuite.com

Victor Racz, producer at FeelThere, commented: "In our previous stand-alone product Tower! 2011 we focussed on creating a rich simulation. The action took place on airports. This time we took step further". Racz continues: "In Tracon we've took a new perspective. Now there's bigger sectors where players use radar and their speech to guide airplanes for safe departing routes. We have listened the feedback over the past few years concerning air traffic control games and these suggestions have been implemented into this new simulator".

In Tracon! 2012 players guide aircraft of various sizes and capabilities to and from airports within your sectors. The simulator provides you with flight strips, air radar screens including weather radar information layover. With a complex command structure, advanced AI and Speech Recognition technology Tracon! 2012 will allow you to experience of the thrill of being a real air traffic controller.

When asked about the complexity of the simulation, Racz said: "Like with our previous game Tower, we aimed to create authentic, rich simulator. This isn't a simple mobile game. It will take effort to master the system and once you've achieved that, the game really makes you feel being there."
