According to the developers:

Air Control is a new-gen aviasimulator. It is almost perfect , starting from the design and ending with a gameplay. Speaking about the design and all-new spaces of the our airplane simulator , we can say that it gives you more freedom and realism ,you have ever seen in such kind of games before.

At first we worked at airplane's compartment.The result we have now, is so near to the real life . Working at the simulation and flights , we wanted to give players more in-flight adventures, and that is why we decided to expand horizons of gameplay.

What a terrible looking game, Red. Here is a review I found about it at PC Gamer.

There are a lot of bad games on Steam, but last night while browsing the new releases, I encountered a game that is beyond bad. It's not that Air Control is buggy or poorly designed: Air Control is basically just one giant bug, and I'm not sure you could call it "designed." Do not buy Air Control for $6. Do not buy Air Control for £4.79. Do not even buy Air Control for a laugh. But while you're here, let's have a look at Air Control, and see what the developer has to say.

Air Control may be the worst game on Steam we played it and asked the developer to explain | PC Gamer

I found this part particularly telling:

I often poke around Steam's new releases to find games worth reviewing, and sorting through the Putt-Putts and Freddi Fishes and mobile ports with "deluxe" and "HD" in the titles is taking longer and longer. I'd usually ignore a game like Air Control, but it looked too special to miss. I had to try it, to find out if it was a joke or...what it was.

Why does Valve allow games like this on their service? Do you think there needs to be more oversight?

Seems like they could have people "test" them. They could even get away with not hiring anyone. Call it something cool, like "Gaben's testing assistant" and every 13 year old will stumble over themselves to get in on it. Give them each a handful of games temporarily each month (like they already do every now and then) and have them upload a video to youtube so others can see it before they buy. Maybe give them some of those new fangled Steam "experience points" or whatever they are so they can get higher Steam ranks the more games they document.

Of course this could lead to shitty developers bribing children, creating a cartel comprised entirely of minors.

Well, as that article points out, they used to be rather restrictive with Greenlight. You undoubtedly remember the time when gaming sites would write articles about the handful of games that made it through Greenlight in a month. Now almost 1,000 games have been pushed through in as many months. They've just turned it into a rubber stamp and developers game the system by offering free game keys to anyone who upvotes.

Not a bad idea you have though. I think Greenlight and Early Access certainly need to be reformed now that we've seen the flaws and have them working in tandem. Perhaps in a fashion similar to what you are suggesting.

Walatiki Temple is a map based on strategy. No matter how high your DPS is, you should have a plan to guarantee the success of your team. Notice the goal is to find the masks, if you can’t achieve it, you will be defeated even if you have the DPS as high as 300k. it is quite common to see the powerful part to lose.
