Despite millions of tons of smoke and ash still pumping into the atmosphere from an erupting volcano in Iceland, Miniclip.com (http://www.miniclip.com) has entered into the aviation industry and today launches Volcanic Airways.
Pilots of all ages are invited to apply for positions on the flight deck and there are no age restrictions. It’s not even necessary to have a pilot’s license but you will need skill, daring and plenty of luck to get your planes safely back on the ground. Are you brave enough to take on the challenge of this monstrous ash cloud in an attempt to get your passengers home safely? With flights just resuming and the ash cloud still lurking out there, demand for courageous pilots will be high, so make sure that you apply now.
Famed for its innovation and daring, Miniclip.com believes that Volcanic Airways will be an instant hit with gamers all over the world. Whether you’ve been affected by the travel chaos or just been a spectator, Miniclip hopes to lighten the mood and get people smiling again. With bonus points available for loops, tricks and, most importantly, landing your aircraft safely and bringing your passengers home in one piece, can you take the strain of being the Captain?
A great game to keep the kids amused, Niclas Aberg, Creative Director at Miniclip.com, thinks that an injection of fun will raise some smiles amidst all the frustration and anxiety of having family and friends stranded all over the world: “We sympathise with the thousands suffering from the flight restrictions and our aim now, as always at Miniclip.com, is to amuse and entertain. Once again we’re releasing an exciting game but there’s a serious message too and that relates to the importance of bringing airline passengers home quickly, but safely.”
Volcanic Airways launches today at http://www.miniclip.com.
