Give us a little more about this, would you please? At least describe the control mechanic whether it's a flick, a tap of a button, continuous tapping, toss your phone, etc. (I don't know!) A video would be good too! Thanks!

The game mechanic works like this. You start while holding your paper airplane which is rotating. You tap to stop the plane rotating, which determines the trajectory of your throw. So basically it's tap to choose how high or low the plane will go, which also requires some timing.

Then you tap to make your character run forward, the goal then is to tap when your character is over the red acceleration points which speeds the character up and makes the throw longer. Then you tap again to throw the plane before your character crosses the throw line. It is kind of like that old javelin toss game, but with a different forward movement mechanic.

Also something that I love is that if your plane lands in front of an animal (bear, dog, rabbit) they will kick your plane forward giving you some extra distance. They can even kick it to another animal which gives you a good bump.

TL;DR it's tap and timing, plus cute animals help you out.

I'll see if I can get a video up.
