I Believe I Can Fly: Reach New Heights As Flying Boy In This New Doodle Jump-Like Game
Do you ever dream about being able to fly? Well, Flying Boy certainly does. In fact, that's all he wants to do in the new iOS game named after him. Actually, in the game, Flying Boy doesn't so much fly as jump. Indeed, Flying Boy is a jumping game reminiscent of Doodle Jump, the granddaddy of iOS jumping games. But unlike Doodle Jump, Flying Boy is not an endless jumping game. Rather, it's a timed jumping game that's more concerned with competition than survival. By logging into the game through Facebook, you can compete for vertical supremacy with your friends. As you go higher and get closer to the highest score of any of your friends, his or her photo appears to motivate you to win. You can also join the weekly tournament, which can earn you a spot in the Hall of Fame. If you can't see the video embedded above, please click here. But how do you play Flying Boy anyway? It's quite simple, really. As in Doodle Jump, you just have to tilt your device to make Flying Boy jump from one platform to another. Alternatively, you can opt for the game's touch control scheme, which lets you guide Flying Boy by dragging your finger from side to side. The higher you jump, the higher your score. Also, the higher you jump, the more coins you get. You can use your collected coins to upgrade your jump level or time level, remove sticky blocks, start with a booster, or get 10 seconds more. Note that every session of Flying Boy costs one superhero costume. You get a free costume every several minutes, but you can also purchase more costumes in the in-game shop using real money. Featuring cute and colorful graphics coupled with nimble music, Flying Boy is available now in the App Store as a free universal game. [gallery link="file" order="DESC"]
