Decent clone of Rovio's Retry. Not near as good but still a fun game. It definitely needs Game Center though. There are in game achievements, but it would be nice to have both leaderboards and achievements integrated with GC...

I find control in this one is much easier than in Rovio's game…

Yeah, played through 10 levels and it's significantly easier than Rovio's Retry. Played a round of endless too and finally had to crash on purpose because there was no challenge. This one is more a horizontal scroller unlike Retry where your going vertically as well as horizontally, and sometimes going backwards. Difficulty in this one could definitely be stepped up quite a bit. Still a decent game, just not near as fun as Retry...

Change the levels to the challenge ones. It's a button under the map. I thought as you until I played those…

I somehow missed this on launch, just found about it by chance today.

The pixel art looks good and there's a whole bunch of planes/characters to unlock. About the difficulty, it gets a little harder if you want to grab all coins along the way, coz you'll need to do some tight maneuvers to reach some coins in tricky spots. Also, in endless mode you play on different locations depending on the plane you choose, and some locations are harder than others.

I really like it, especially the endless mode, and for free it's certainly worth a shot!

Its a clone of Retry, but this game is doing everything better than the original, better gameplay better art style and design, so even that's a clone still very good polish game

Wow. I missed this too. I actually like it. I took a break from Star Wars uprising and have this a whirl. I like it so much Ibwatched a few ads for the rewards.

It's a fun game with no timers or forced ads. It controls well and every so often you earn enough coins to unlock a new aircraft. It's really cool. I left a nice review on a AppStore too.

Thank you for pointing this game out!

Are you guys sure that this is the clone? I'm quite sure I've played it on Android around a year ago, before Retry was launched - at least worldwide.

As most here on the thread, I also think it is better than Retry in every way - specially the gameplay mechanics which is what I value most in a game.

And for those thinking it is too easy: things get much harder on the later levels. But the difficulty curve is pretty good, maybe just not for someone who is used to the Retry mechanics and will make the inevitable comparison.
