I'm confused about the Airport Mania serie. As far as I understand there are three games on Nintendo platforms. Airport Mania: First Flight for WiiWare, Airport Mania: First Flight for DSiWare and Airport Mania: Non-Stop Flights.

From what I understood is that Airport Mania: First Flight for WiiWare is a port of a PC game with the same name. The we got Airport Mania: Non-Stop Flights for DSiWare is the same game, but then only one level with non-stop gameplay. Finally Airport Mania: First Flight is a port of the WiiWare game with aspects from the other DSiWare game (manly control).

Did I understood that correctly? And which game is the best? The game really sounds like a fun game for on the go, but if the WiiWare version is better, I might need to pick that one up. And one non-stop level in Airport Mania: Non-Stop Flights sounds fine. But I'm feel like seperate levels are better/nicer.

As far as I can tell First Flight is the real game and Non-Stop Flights is considered an expansion.(kind of like Pop Island: Paperfield)

I think Non-Stop Flights is only available on iphone and DSiware.

So basically, First Flight for WiiWare and DSiWare are a whole bunch of levels while Non-Stop Flights is one level that can go on forever.

I think I only go for First Flight then. Are there many differences between the WiiWare and DSiWare versions?

Wiiware version has more levels, but is 300 points more expensive. I like the DSi version much better because:
1) It's only 200 points
2) It's portable
3) It has better controls

Yeah, get First Flights on DSiWare. It's one of my favorite DSiWare games and it lasted quite long for a mere 2 bucks. :)

I actually disagree that the DSi version has better controls, but that may just be a preference thing.

I prefer the WiiWare version myself. It's a little more expensive, but it's still a steal. It's a truly wonderful game, and one of my favorites in the entire WiiWare library. I plan on getting it for my new phone soon, so hopefully it's as good there as it was on the Nintendo systems!

I love the DSiWare version so far. But it is way too simple. Currently at the end of world 6 (I think there are only eight). And I have completed them all with three stars and all planes in every level are left early.

Looks like the Android version has 8 worlds, but it's a little tough to select things as the planes can often block other objects that you're trying to tap.

Not a huge problem...it's still a lot of fun and well worth the money, but I do think the WiiWare version is the best one yet.

From what I've gathered so far, it has more levels (same as the PC version).

Finally took Nintendolife's advice and bought Airport Mania: First Flight, and I'm glad I did. Great game! Probably going to buy the WiiWare version too just to play it again and to get some extra levels :)

Well, in the end I got Airport Mania: Non-Stop Flights as well after finishing First Flight, and it works really well in that role. Once you've mastered First Flight and cleared all the stages, Non-Stop Flights is kind of like the "Challenge" version of Airport Mania, putting all your skills from First Flight to the test. Sure, it won't last as long as the different stages in First Flight do, but it's fun to compete for the best high scores.

So far, my 3DS Activity Log tells me I've played 5 hours of Non-Stop Flights, so that's a great value for the low price. My high score is over 4,000,000 points/money.

So, my recommendation for the Airport Mania games: Get both! First Flight for getting into the game, and then Non-Stop Flights which is kind of like a "Hard mode" challenge.
