Vikings used to be tough… And one of the clear exponents of the myth is FlapCraft. A game where you are a Viking riding a log thrown from a slope. Your goal? Fly further than anyone!
When I picked FlapCraft, I immediately though about Fly Kiwi, Fly, a game no longer available in the App Store (a pity, it was hilarious). In both, you have to beat each level doing some kind of acrobatics or reaching a set of distance, speed or time (or all).
There’s a “but”… In FlapCraft, you only have levels, it lacks a free fly mode (which Fly Kiwi, Fly had), thus once you have finished all levels you are done. No replayability here (so far).
But I would bet it will take you a long while to do so: some levels are very hard and will keep you trying and trying endlessly for hours. Also, the graphics and the overall theme of the game is real fun, the viking’s beard flowing in the wind just a highlight of it.
A good game that needs a little improvement… But the developers are smart enough to add new things. Or they aren’t? We’ll see…
Would I Buy Again:Maybe
Who Is It For:Occasional gamers
What I Like:The style and design (and idea)
What I Don't Like:The lack of an infinite mode, the game is way too short
Final Statement:A decent game, very well styled
