High Flyer Jetpack Tests 

 

High Flyer Jetpack Tests is the second app in the line of high flying death defying games from Game Mechanic Studios. This time players get to complete thirty-five unique mini games. So a little bit different from the first version. Arreon is younger, and just learning how to fall with style. Missions range from things like collecting all the items, getting to the bottom in a certain amount of time and more.

The graphics can be dark in parts, and light in others. I loved flying through a cloud, and landing. Although that landing pad has a freaky looking face on it. The details are okay. It can be difficult to see much of anything when one is going 300 miles per hour. I did bounce off a few things to get a closer look - that was not the best thing for completing the mission.

The music in High Flyer Jetpack Tests is what Tony the Tiger always talks about. It's Great! I love the music in High Flyer Jetpack Tests. In fact I kept replaying certain levels just to enjoy the music. High Flyer Jetpack Tests has a neat tutorial to teach players how to play the game. It was a little impatient though.

The thirty-five levels for ninety-nine cents is sort of middle of the road. I have played games that include many more levels for that price. I am not sure why this app was not included in the original as an update. The mini games in High Flyer Jetpack Tests are also highly challenging. I can see High Flyer Jetpack Tests leading to frustration.

Part of the reason High Flyer Jetpack Tests frustrated me is the controls. Instead of tilting like other games, there is an on screen controller. I had to use my left hand to use it, and I am right handed. I could not see where it was because my hand was over it. Add in the long load times and I could see areas for improvement.

I learned to fall with style thanks to High Flyer Jetpack Tests. I also learned that landing one of these things is harder than it looks. I missed the landing way too often not being able to tell where I was landing. I like the concept of High Flyer Jetpack Tests, and feel it fits the iPhone/iPod Touch platform admirably.
