In the game, you play as the presumed title character, who wakes up “in a forgotten prison” and “flies off in search of purpose” with the aid of a magical umbrella. El is essentially a flying game, but it’s by no means another Flappy Bird wannabe.
In each level of El, you have to hold on your iOS device’s screen to open your umbrella and float upwards, and swipe left and right to create wind force in either direction. Dodge obstacles and collect life-sustaining feathers to progress through the game’s enigmatic story.
