Greetings & Salutations Folks!
Recently, I’ve had the good fortune share with you several incredibly well done mobile games from London-based game developers ‘PlayStack Limited’. They seem to be on quite a roll with their recent releases like ‘Snipers VS. Thieves’ and the game that I get to share with you today would be, in my opinion, akin to scoring a hat trick in a professional soccer game.
From the multi-award winning British indie game studio ‘Laser Dog’ and developer ‘PlayStack Limited’ is a game that sets a new standard in mobile gaming ‘Ava Airborne’. It’s like this see? Ava loves to fly. No propellers. No jets. It’s just Ava and her glider. How far she can traveler with her glider is up to you. Flying by any means is not without its risks. You must guide Ava and her glider across the incredibly hazardous yet beautiful skyline. You must utilize your piloting skills as well as ground-based trampolines, cannons, floating fans, altitude boosters, and turbo-charged catapults. The sky is not without its dangers though. There are flying bomb-balloons, air-based laser nets, and suspended electric wire nets that move about the skies.
The game has a total of 15 levels. The further you fly, the faster you go, the longer you live .. the bigger the reward. A simple premise but not all together easy considering the hazards that await you. Keep Ava in the air. Use anything you can find. Anything at your disposal from an old umbrella and cardboard wings to rocket-propelled boots or even a jet-fueled trombone! Collect candies, trinkets, and charms to use to upgrade Ava’s glider and flying gear.
The game has been described in the press by CEO of PlayStack Harvey Elliott as ‘enchanting’. After having the chance to play the game myself, I’d agree with that assessment but personally? I’d take it up a notch and call it ‘addicting’. ‘Ava Airborne’ is the 6th title from Laser Dog studios and their previous releases have garnered many awards and accolades. I have no doubt whatsoever that this game will continue the success.
It’s not without some difficulty at the beginning, the controls take a bit of getting used to and the in-game advertisements are a bit long on the tooth. The game is free-to-play though so you really can’t complain about that too much. Other than that, the graphics are brilliantly executed and the audio is perfectly attuned to the available audio for iPads and iPhones. Like most free-to-play games, there is also an in-app store where you can purchase extra credits and in-game currencies to help trick out your gear sooner rather than later. You will require iOS 8 or later depending on the device you download the game to and it’ll take up about 125.3 MB.
My personal opinion? Get this game. I’d rate it 5 out of 5 stars. Most definitely one of the better games I’ve seen in ages. Considering how awesome this game is, I can’t wait to see what Laser Dog and PlayStack have ‘up their sleeves’ in the future.
