While the actual goal of Eyedip’s Flight Doodle isn’t, by any means, unusual (fly upward, avoid falling objects, collect prizes), the creators included several elements that make the action game feel fresh and unique. With amusing visuals and highly customisable settings, this addictive game is certain to keep players returning.
Flight Doodle takes place on a white backdrop that is littered with drawings. It’s not uncommon to notice pencil-like sketches of stick figures and various animals floating through the air as you play. Ultimately, the background sets a fun tone to the game, which makes it a great app for adults and smaller children alike.
The best feature of the app is the level of customisation that players can enjoy with both their flight crafts and game settings. Flight Doodle comes with several non-conventional crafts to fly around in – including a tub with three people lounging nakedly in bubbles – but I preferred to take advantage of the DIY option and design my own balloon. Players can paint hot air balloons any colour and upload photos from their phone (my Lost balloon adorned with John Locke’s face consistently scored the highest points). While the default setting uses falling safety pins as the main danger of ending the game, enemies are one of the many settings players have the option of customising. A choice of other sharp objects is available to choose from.
Overall, Flight Doodle is a well-done game. The option to customise enemies, choose what music plays, and design a flight craft allows players to make the game their own. The developers put so much effort into making each small detail impressive, and their hard work resulted in a fun and creative game.Flight Doodle,
