Good
  • Lots of options for growth – Simple design perfect for the casual player
Bad
  • Minimal engagement in gameplay – Slow to get the feeling of a true airport

If you’d prefer to take over the skies as opposed to the various other tycoon management games on offer than Skyrama allows you to do just that. Starting from the most basic airport you’ll want to expand out to create a massive central airport hub.

Unfortunately this means Skyrama does start off slowly in its game mechanics as you build up your base of operations and expand on your potential options. Starting with but a single plane and sending it across the globe will generate money for your small operation before receiving them back and ensuring they are maintained and fuelled for their next trip across the skies. For those that add in game friends you’ll also be able to visit their airport and vice versa.

All of this is accomplished through a standard click based mechanic that lets you do all these tasks with a single click. Where Skyrama really starts to take off is when players have several airplanes on the go with limited runways space making the game more akin to a logical puzzle than the traditional management game.

All the while the funds are rolling in players will also be expanding the airport in a visual fashion with the likes of new buildings and a bunch of decorations to make your airport truly your own. Skyrama has a fairly large library of decorations and buildings which for the most part are presented well, albeit simply.

Overall SkyRama finds itself not in a complex place with simple design and mechanics, the curve that your airport goes through is still enjoyable for the casual player though.

Summary:

  • Create your very own thriving airport.
  • Command your flight paths, maintenance and fuelling.
  • Customise your buildings and decorations to make your airport your own.
  • Add friends and compare airports with each other.
  • Free to play browser game.
