You are an Air Traffic Controller at a busy international airport. Literally thousands of lives are in your hands every day as you guide giant airliners and small private aircraft taking off and landing. You try to stay relaxed under the intense pressure of your job, but you must always be ready for emergencies.
You receive 25 points for each successful landing. For every emergency landing you receive 50 points if you are able to land the aircraft with an emergency before any other aircraft. You will lose 5 points every time you allow an aircraft to wander off the screen. As the score increases, the speed of the aircraft on the screen increases. You are allowed four control errors, such as allowing a near-miss or not immediately landing an aircraft in distress. You will be allowed an additional control error every 500 points you earn. The number of control errors (lives) remaining is indicated by the green lights at the top of the screen.
