Explore an infinite dream world. Survive an endless nightmare. How far can you fly?

INSTRUCTIONS

Fly to the right!

Tap the arrow keys to flap your wings. Hold the right arrow to drill through walls.

Everything that moves will try to kill you. Try not to let that happen.

ABOUT

Flydrill is a game I first played in a dream, in October of 2008. When I woke up, I vowed to turn my dream into a real game. Now, after more than a year, it is finished. I hope you have as much fun playing it as I have.

I did all the design, programming, graphics, and sound effects for this game. But I couldn't have done it without some awesome free tools - Flixel, FlashDevelop, Paint.NET, and sfxr. Many thanks to the creators of those free tools!

Newgrounds' very own SineRider wrote the music for this game. Over the past year, this song is what has kept me in touch with the memory of my dream. Many of the details you may notice in this game were first imagined while listening to this song, eyes closed. Thank you, SineRider.

I hope you enjoy the game. If it proves popular enough, I have several more features I'd like to add, including replay sharing and a deeper story to explore for those who are so inclined.

I'm looking forward to reading your reviews! :)

UPDATE

Now you drill in all four directions!

Errors

You have a #1009 (with you preloader, I guess, it'S right at the beginning)
and then a #2060 when the game starts and that's a security sandbox error.

Please debug your game. Thanks


axcho responds:

Thanks for reporting those bugs.

I've just released an update that should fix those issues. It would be great if you could try the game again to see if you still get those errors. Just make sure to clear your browser cache and refresh the page first.

You can send me a PM to let me know how it goes. Thank you!

(no title)

I must say that I really liked this game. This is one of the most original concepts I've seen in a while and it really is a breath of fresh air. It is simplistic, but not to the point where I'm getting bored while playing. The challenge also ramps up at a nice pace. I would rate this higher, but but having to constantly tap the arrow keys to move started to give my hand cramps. Maybe the controls could be changed so that you had to only hold the direction you wanted to fly in, but then tap in order to drill through walls. Other than that, this is a simple, fun, and unique game that I would recommend.


axcho responds:

Thank you for the thoughtful review.

I didn't mean to cramp your hand, sorry! Your suggestion about holding to fly and tap to drill is one I've heard before, actually. It could be interesting as an alternate mode. I'll have to experiment with it. :)

UPDATE

I've modified the game so you can glide by holding down the arrow keys! Give it a try and let me know what you think.
