    "It's quite a realistic flight simulator game for android. The plane models are all very detailed. What I like most is that the developers also took time to make the maps and landscapes realistic as well."

DID YOU KNOW

Did you know that according to an article in a game review website Gamasutra, simulator games have a devoted community... of 7-to-12-year-old gamers? The owner of simulator creator SCS Software Pavel Sebor said in a 2013 article that the genre of simulator games is alive thanks to "too young" gamers. Simulator games like racing or airplane simulator games have gamers who are too young for more action-packed games. Multiplayer games like Call of Duty, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Dota 2 are games considered to be for more mature players.

Sebor also said that there is another niche market for simulator games. Males aged 35 and above who are trying to play games to kill time or want to simulate their real-life occupations. He also said that even it is hard to sell the game in the United States, their games are doing well in other populous countries like Brazil, Turkey, and China. According to Sebor, this scrape-by-the-claws business model helps small-time game makers like SCS too. This is because big gaming companies like Tencent and Rockstar Games don't usually enter the simulation market. Giants Software's Farming Simulator game for PC was a success story in the simulation market. They topped the charts retail sales in France and Germany in 2012. Other simulator games like flight simulator games, role play simulation, and war games are also popular among gamers.
