Run, jump, and squash bugs in Flyhunter Origins
Nobody likes flies. I mean, David Cronenberg's movie The Fly, sure. But real flies, we instinctively want to swat them. When you hit one, it's just so satisfying. Why not make a game about hunting those pesky flies then?
Flyhunter Origins is a 3D platformer from Steel Wool Games and Ripstone in which a team of alien flyhunters travels through space collecting valuable insects. Something goes wrong on their ship, letting loose a cargo of bugs on the unsuspecting earth. With cartoon-quality story sequences and plenty of bugs to squash, kids and platforming fans will want to give this paid game a look.
Zak the Flyhunter is actually a very small alien, so the flies, spiders, and other bugs he battles will frequently be just as large as him. Luckily, his flyswatter is more than capable of squishing them as he runs and jumps through each level. Simple touch controls (swipe left and right to walk, plus jump and flyswatter buttons) make exploration a snap.
Flyhunter Origins costs $2.99. If you're looking for a cheerful mobile platformer with strong production values, give it a try.
