Fledgling Heroes (2020) is a fun flying game where you tap or press to guide a path through landscapes and collect coins. You can swim, sprint and soar, defeat dastardly dragons, unlock wondrous new worlds, and explore limitless levels in the Lab.
Along the way, you meet a menagerie of feathered friends, each with their own story to tell, as they dodge dastardly pirate lizards. The controls are a simple tap or hold for all of them, but they each have different abilities: Macaus flu, Kingfishers dive, Penguins swim, and Quails run.
You can also make your own levels with the built-in editor and then share them with your friends. You can also customize your bird's colours, which is a little like a painting game in its own right.
There are over 90 levels where younger players can work to get to the end or more experienced can go for a fast time or high score. The level of detail and super simple one-button controls combine with clever interactions and gameplay to make this excellent fun!
