Flyro is an endless flying game with a whimsical cartoon exterior created by Brute Farce. Flyro the bird lives on a beautiful island that attracts all sorts of tourists. Far to the north is Mouseville, home of an evil mastermind who was convinced Birdtown was stealing his tourists. One day this Moustermind came up with a plan to freeze the tropical bird paradise. Flyro wasn't going to have it, and recalling her more-than-ordinary birth that involved a volcano, she sets out to heat things up with a little bit of fire power.
Control Flyro by holding your finger on the bottom of the screen. Slide back and forth to avoid heavy, non-burnable obstacles while collecting coins and flame tokens. When something wooden your way comes, release the screen and Flyro lights on fire, burning whatever is in her path. Spicing things up are a series of missions in the style of Jetpack Joyride and its ilk, challenging you to pull off some stunts while flying through the skies.
Flyro is an unassuming game on the surface, but it's got just the right combination of simplicity and style to make it stand above its contemporaries. The controls are simple but effective, allowing you to navigate the world without frustration. The variety of obstacles you'll encounter ranges from simple sky barrels to spring-loaded boxing gloves and electricity halls, neither of which are particularly good for birdy's health. With difficulty that scales based on your skill level and a complete absence of any sort of pay-to-win gimmick, Flyro is a clear winner no matter how you look at it!
