Ok, this is nothing like what I expected.
It isn't a regular bouncer, or endless riser mega jump type game.

You are slowly (at first, but your speed increases the higher you go) rising.
There are three types of objects that will get in your way:

Hazards - you swipe off the screen;
Threats - you tap until they are gone; &
Powerups - you drag towards "kid aviator" to collect them

This game has a cool vibe, cute simple graphics, and it feels different than anything I've played.
There's lots of auto level ups/medals to achieve.

It has Gamecenter...but...
There's only three achievements and no leaderboards.
This puzzles me. This is a high score game with GC, but no leaderboards?

Overall: 4/5
I like it, but it starts slow...there's no leaderboards, that's the major drawback.
It is super simple, but I think I'll spend more time playing it than most games I buy.

EDIT:
Actually there are leaderboards, it just appears I'm the only one on them.
Also, there's a weird option that makes you send your score to the leaderboard, so it doesn't automatically add you to the leaderboards unless you click "send score to GC".

That video makes the gameplay look so slow.

Not anymore and that first spot shall be mine by the end of tomorrow.

Only played a few rounds but enjoying it, gets quite frantic when loads of stuff appears at once and you're tapping and swiping and often tilting too.

Thanks for recommendation, I'd have missed this otherwise.

According to the definition:- an 'aviator' is someone who flies an aircraft..

I see no aircraft in this?

It starts slow, but gets hectic.
I do wish it was a bit quicker at times...
