Airboy for the Android and IOS platforms offers a unique, somewhat surreal challenge of collecting donuts and cupcakes, avoiding animated animals and thorn walls, and destroying things with pairs of chomping teeth.
Airboy has strange but elegantly designed graphics that for the most part all mesh together very well. It provides several unique backdrops and environments, on top of this for those who can rise to the challenge of the earlier levels. The title menu and map screen seem to be in a different style, which is a little off-putting, but for the most part the graphics are near perfect for a two-dimensional game.
The app provides several different tasks, including collecting the three precariously places cupcakes throughout each level, collecting the far more common donuts, and slaying various beasts. Paths are often block by hordes of killer animals or giant walls of thorns. cacti, or ice that require players to nudge chopping sets of floating teeth at different angles to cut a path through the obstcles. Airboy also offers a mini game, in which the protagonist Airboy replaces the famous Flappy Bird and maneuvers through platforms above and below. Rather than try to capitalize on Flappy Bird’s success like loads of other developers, the developers of Airboy simply make their clone a mini game extra for players, and as a nod to the Flappy Bird app. Their main game is far different even being in the same genre as the Flappy games, and utilizing similar controls. Airboy is far more diverse in its challenges.
With plenty to do, lots of levels to explore, and lots to collect, Airboy has plenty of replay value for its $0.99 price tag. For those who enjoy intuitive controls, surreal tasks, and crisp graphics, Airboy is a good choice.
