Rovio's LVL11 publishing arm takes off with obstacle-dodging game called Retry

Want to fill the void left behind by Flappy Bird? Rovio may have the solution with Retry, a game that involves steering an out-of-control plane through a series of challenging obstacles.

Hit anything in the level, and you're back to square one (hence the name Retry). The controls make the game even more challenging, as you need to perfectly time your loops to avoid hitting any objects. Here are the main features:

  • FLY. CRASH. REPEAT. No one said this would be easy.
  • SPIN FOR THE WIN! Loop, stall, dive – master the moves, or eternally retry.
  • COLLECT COINS! It's the 80s – what did you expect? Don't say Bitcoins...
  • DAILY CHALLENGES! Unlock these intense levels and humiliate your Facebook friends.
  • RETRO 8-BIT GRAPHICS! Next gen? How 'bout first gen.
  • SLICK SYNTHESIZER SOUNDTRACK! Crank it up and hit the skies.

The game itself is free, although there are in-app purchases and advertisements.

What do you guys think of Rovio's efforts with Retry? Think it can come close to emulating the success of the publisher's bird-themed franchise?
