Toy 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.
