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


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.


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! :)


Now you drill in all four directions!

Ha, can you tell I did the graphics myself? ;)

That's awesome that you played it for hours! I still like playing Flydrill more than any other Flash game, but I've never played it for multiple hours. That's impressive.

10 for creativity.

I was very impressed by the creativity. I've never played a game exactly like this one. :)

axcho responds:

Ah, I'm really sorry for not letting you play the game!

I've just fixed this error and updated Flydrill. I would be really grateful if you could try the game again and let me know if it works for you now. You may have to clear your browser cache so the new version shows up.

Thanks for reporting the error. :)
