I just downloaded and tried Now Boarding - hey, this is a good game! It amazes me how you find good games other sites seem to miss!
Anyway, at first I was not sure about the cartoony graphics, because they look a little weird. But I downloaded it anyway. After playing for awhile, I think the graphics adds to the game's charm. I found this to be fairly relaxing for a time management game... maybe it's because of the soothing lobby music. haha I liked routing the planes to pick up passengers around the country and get them to their destinations. You have to plan your routes carefully too, to minimize layovers and fly through clouds to collect money bonuses. And I love all the customization options - you can buy lots of useful things for the terminal, buy more planes, hire people, expand into new cities (and eventually into new parts of the world)... and you can build your business anyway you want. Lots of replay value there.
I highly recommend this great game - kudos to the developer, and to MGC for finding it and publishing it! You guys are the greatest!

I see what you mean, AlleyCat! I thought the same thing about the graphics, but it grows on you the more you play it. It is pretty fun! Thanks for commenting on the game, I probably would not have tried Now Boarding if I had not seen what you wrote.

I'm not crazy about time mangement games, but I like this one. It has some strategy elements to it that I like. I like the way you earn money to expand and grow your airline. Lots of fun!
