Help Me Fly

JohnB[New free browser version as of 09/25/13!]

Help Me Fly by Funtomic is a combination logic game and a shape-fitting tangram-style puzzle game available in your browser or on your iOS or Android. If that sounds like too steep of a learning curve, take solace in the fact that Help Me Fly is designed for casual players in mind, providing heaps of challenge with 60 well-designed puzzles that will give your brain a good but fair workout!

Help Me FlyToy planes just aren't made the way they were used to. This particular one seems to have a shoddy electrical system. You'll need to connect it to a battery to get it airborne again. Tap and drag to move blocks around the screen, moving them to create an unbroken connection that spans the grid from plane to battery. When you're all done, hit the "go" button and send the plane flying. Make sure you connect to the star outlines as well, you'll need those to progress through the game. Later levels introduce switches and barriers and other creative challenges that up the challenge without upping the complexity.

Help Me Fly has a flawless interface with artwork that simply shines. It's completely free from ads, in-app purchases and other ridiculous gimmicks modern mobile games seem compelled to include. It's just straight-up gaming goodness. The high level of difficulty is well-hidden by the cartoonish artwork. You wouldn't expect a game that looks this cute to be this challenging. This chiefly comes from having to gather nearly every star in each world before you can move to the next. You're not on a timer, however, so there's no reason to rush. Just sit back, stare at the shapes, then see how you can make them all fit together.

Play Help Me Fly

Having a lot of fun with this one. It starts getting interesting after the first 3 tutorial levels (which take less than a minute). What I especially like is that even later levels aren't very busy - you typically don't have more than 3-4 pieces to move around but that still creates challenge.

Also sometimes I think really hard and figure out a solution, and other times I just move things around until something works - which means I can play this while watching The Daily Show!

Bottom line is it's already worth the $0.99 and I'm only at level 23.

Also HURRAY for no iAP or ads!

I just blew through the whole game. All 60 levels, with every star in each level.

I don't regret purchasing the whole thing.
