News Release For Immediate Release
Air Traffic Control Delivered Straight To Your Desktop!
Hampstead, NC, 30 October 2006
Shrapnel Games would like to announce that Air Command 3.0, the intense air traffic
control simulation developed by Joe's Games for Windows, is now available for purchase
through the Shrapnel Games' e-store, the Gamers Front as a download. Available for
only $39.95, gamers can be playing the full retail version within minutes of purchase!
Air Command 3.0 allows gamers to step into the shoes of an air traffic controller at one
of the world's busiest airports and push tin on your personal computer (for an even more
exhilarating experience play in a darkened room, with the air conditioner going full blast,
and skip sleep for a week). Yes, you too can experience all the high-stress fun of
directing passenger-laden planes without the guilt when you screw up. Digital planes
colliding and raining debris for miles = guilty pleasure. Real planes colliding and raining
debris for miles = massive lawsuit (and probably some guilt, but without the pleasure).
Covering a unique subject, Air Command 3.0 boasts an impressive array of features to
bring the experience to life. Digitized pilot voices, along with possible communication
errors between the pilots and the control tower, make for an authentic feeling experience.
Weather, with real world Doppler radar precipitation patterns, can play a factor. Players
direct both inbound and outbound flights at a variety of airports, with a built-in editor that
allows players to create any type of airport they want. A scalable difficulty allows
everyone from the "never been to an airport in real life" type to the "just retired from
being a real air traffic controller" gamer to enjoy Air Command 3.0.
Gamespy said of Air Command 3.0, "Have you ever seen those jugglers that juggle three
objects and then suddenly have three or four more thrown into the mix? That's what it
feels like during the rush hour in Air Command 3.0. Just when you think you've got the
situation under control, it changes. However, when you get it right, it's very rewarding,
and when you get it wrong, you're left with the mix of anger and desire to improve what
is sometimes called addiction."
The first hit is always free, so if you want to start your own path of addiction feel free to

The full version of Air Command 3.0, available for Windows, may be purchased (and
downloaded immediately!) at:
An expansion pack featuring 34 real-world airports is also available at the Gamers Front
Air Command 3.0 is a different kind of strategy game. You've mastered sweeping across
the world with armies, chugging across the Great Plains on a railroad, bringing peace and
harmony to the galaxy in a starship, turning your god into the supreme god, so why not
see what the friendly skies hold? Can you juggle half a dozen flights with a cold front
