Soar through the air in this unique, hand-drawn arcade game - from the creator of 'A Skyrocket Story'

• Super addictive 'Impossible Flight' mode - can you last just 1 more second?
• Take on the 'Challenges' to sharpen your flight skills & set new high scores
• '60 second Flight' - perfect bite-size fun if you only have a few moments free.

• Original hand-drawn artwork by John William Evelyn

When you play the challenges, it doesn't even tell you if you pass or fail.

The graphics are fairly good looking. Needs more colors, even if with high transparency. Its hard to tell whats going on on the screen. There is no explanation of how the game mechanics work either. The silence during gameplay is not that pleasant, some chill music in the background would work. Gameplay-wise its okay; nothing spectacular. But at least it functions properly i guess.

The graphics are beautiful but the mechanics are pretty awful.
Kite jerks around with mouse movement and there is no difference in the trees against the background so its a bit hard to avoid them. Played is a few times before I got bored.

It's sort of playable, but I don't really get it. There are little arrows, or something, which you run into and it's...good? And then suddenly the kite will burst out light balls, and that's...bad? I have no idea why I get a game over so quickly.
