Fly With Me

In another life, Fly with me could have been named Tap to Fly - those three words surprisingly sum up your controls. You control a bird by controlling when it flaps as it manoeuvres through a horizontal obstacle course, replete with bad bugs, wind gusts, spiders, holes in trees and more. 

Flap is in limited supply and when you run out, your bird falls to the ground like a stone (the death scenes funnily enough are the best thing about this game).  You just have to decide when to flap and when to not (ie glide) and your Flap meter can be regenerated by eating bees.  As you progress through the game collecting golden stars and a golden cog on each level, levels will be unlocked and new birds to fly. The graphics are clean, crisp and cartoony and there are some great animation scenes that made me laugh out loud.  The gameplay though can get repetitive, just like some of the music. 

One major complaint are the in-app purchases. Why oh why do messages keep popping every few minutes, reminding you that you can buy a robotic bird, or unlock levels or other annoying things, when all you want to do is play the game.  It really gets on your nerves, having to click on 'No Thanks' tens of times in one session, enough to put the game down for some people. 

For 99c, this can give you a few laughs and wouldn't be too bad to while away some time, if you can just ignore the annoying popups.
