Under rating threshold (show) Hey maybe you could diverisify the regions, like make one of the regions over the water...you know, just for effect and interest. wouldn't it be cool if your wingtip like dipped in the water whenever you turned?

Under rating threshold (show) Good lord, the pace is maddening and I like it. Blinking is sometimes a luxury I cannot afford while playing. I rather enjoy the stripped down, geometric graphics and the use of light and shadow is great. The sense of urgency ramps up as the sun dips toward the horizon and the shadows from the pillars get longer and more ominous. The series of goals to work toward for unlocking new power ups keeps me going for "just one more turn" too. As a critique, could Tris be made more visible? They're hard to spot from a distance and it's difficult enough to concentrate on the terrain without being dashed against the rocks.

Developer response from Flippfly

Thanks for your feedback - our most recent update makes Tris more visible, and slightly easier to grab.

Under rating threshold (show) @Erikleker: The bonus multiplier is unlocked once you've reached the maximum level. Complete the daily objective to unlock a 5% bonus for the day. Also, to get the 150 tris objective, try using the Magnet ability :)

Under rating threshold (show) One of my favorite things about this was the quick turnaround between death and restart. With the explosion death update, it looks cool, but takes waaaay too long. Also, tris should still give you more points in the higher region, and this should be multiplied by the multiplier as well.

Under rating threshold (show) Great game! It's always nice to see simple ideas work so well. One thing though, I feel the obstacle of clouds is just bad, it is not really a challenge;as there is rarely a way to avoid them and still keep up with collecting tris, etc so all you are left with is either miss out on a lot of points or lose speed. It would be better if at least the number of clouds was less and if most of them weren't so huge. Anyways, 5/5 favourited.

Developer response from Flippfly

The jump powerup is a great way to avoid the cloud shadows. Thanks for the feedback!

Under rating threshold (show) First of all, I would like to say that this is a work of sheer genius. The controls are perfect, the Magnet and JumpMaster don't make the game too easy. Really fun game, I spent an hour and a half straight p[laying it when it came out! Just one thing: The game was FAR too easy. I got all the badges in by the same guy.

Under rating threshold (show) Ever since the game's multiplier system has changed, getting the achievements have been ridiculously difficult. Before I can get the jump powerup I need to get 80,000 points but it takes as much effort to get those 80,000 points as it used to take to get 250,000 points before the game the changed.

Under rating threshold (show) On the boring, barren landscape of Earth, 3016, the world is dead. Abandoned houses litter the ground as the last survivor tries to fly to the sun. After the factory blew up, pieces of Tris and special powerups were scattered across the world. At least thats what i think. Oh, by the way, great game.It's very original. 5/5
