Flash Gordon (by Boluga)

Flash Gordon

Genres: Games Action Arcade
$2.99 USD

Gordon's alive! And he needs your help to escape the evil clutches of Ming the Merciless... Put your reflexes to the test in an action-packed adventure based on the cult classic Flash Gordon. Rock-out while you adventure through Mongo to music from the original movie soundtrack by Queen.

Playing as either New York quarterback Flash Gordon or travel journalist Dale Arden, players must use skill and timing to progress through the many dangers of Mongo, and all that the evil Emperor Ming has to throw at you.

• 2 exciting modes of play – running and flying.
• 5 stunning, endless levels: Ming’s Palace, Skies of Mongo, Arborian Forests, Aerial Assault, and War Rocket Ajax.
• Play as Flash Gordon or Dale Arden
• Unlock each new level as you progress.
• Battle the enemies and obstacles Ming, Klytus and Kala send your way.
• Pickup power ups in-game that change the balance of play.
• Upgrade power-ups as you collect coins and rewards.
• Complete missions set by your accomplice, Princess Aura.
• Challenge your friends on Game Center and beat their records.
• Featuring 3 Queen songs from the original movie soundtrack.

From fighting through the treacherous Forests of Arboria, to flying high on a Rocket Cycle, Mongo is brought to life with a stunning visual style. Players can unlock new levels by reaching specific goal distances, or by using coins collected within each level. Game changing powerups - each of which can be upgraded - add an additional injection of thrill and excitement to every play.

I bet most of the gamers of this generation probably think this is a reference to the Ted movie lol.

This game is fun! I've unlocked the second level already. If you grew up with the Flash Gordon movie and loved it this game is for you. Everything from the movie is in this game and is done really really well. There is no IAP or pay to win. There are no ads of any kind. There are leaderboards for every level. There are missions. There are power ups that randomly spawn in each level and you can upgrade those levels with coins you collect during gameplay. I've decided to not upgrade anything. The first thing I'm getting is the double coin permanent upgrade for 1500 coins. The game is challenging. In the platforming levels each Ming guard has his own behavior. There are lasers and spikes. The controls are done perfectly. It's very easy to pick up and play.

This is just a quick impression. I absolutely love the music. For instance in the second level where you fly with the hover bike the background music is the music from that same scene from the movie where they are outside of Ming's fortress flying to it. Friggin awesome as hell!

Also what I like is they have both genders covered. You can play as Gordon or the female reporter. They thought the game out!

Hi! The makers of the Flash Gordon game here...
It absolutely does include music from the film. It took a lot of work to license, but we knew we had to have it!
And Dale certainly features. In fact, you can play the whole game as her. She's at least as tough as Flash in the film (remember how she takes out those guards to escape Ming's Palace), so we felt we should reflect that in the game.
Hope you enjoy it!

Are there GC achievements?

There are lots! And there are also a bunch of missions that Princess Aura sets you and awards you coins for completing. Trying to complete them all is a game in itself!
