So, whales can't fly, right? Keep that in mind while playing Whale Trail, a colorful one button arcade "cave flying" game that has recently spread from iOS devices to include other mobile markets. Baron von Barry is chasing Willow the Whale, and in order to escape, she has to take to the skies, staying afloat by collecting bubbles scattered throughout the clouds. It's cute and colorful,
Tapping the screen in Whale Trail causes Willow to float up, not down, while releasing allows her to move towards the bottom of the screen. Colorful bubbles are drawn all over each section, and in order to get them, you'll need to follow some precise (but occasionally forgiving) patterns through dangerous terrain. The dark Thunder Bros. clouds are out to get you, and one touch from their electrifying fog will give you reason never to bump in to them again!
Whale Trail adds itself to a rather crowded genre, but it manages to stand on its own thanks to a delightful presentation and some cool extras like mid-air loops and the nigh-invincible Frenzy mode. A series of over 30 challenge levels have been added, with more promised in the future, that really make the game shine. Good length, great visuals, easy gameplay and a respectable level of challenge that increases appropriately as you continue playing. Whale Trail is a winner no matter how you look at it!
