In Fly Piko, you play as a cuddly bird called Piko. Piko has fallen from his nest, so you need to help him get back home. You will get some help from another bird, Professor Owliver, in your quest to return to the nest. Prof. Owliver will give you wings, helmets, and other items to boost your stats.
The gameplay is excellent, and this title will likely appeal to fans of Burrito Bison or Hedgehog Launch. That being said, it can feel stale and repetitive in the early stages, when you are still building up your stamina. The pop-up ads are also super annoying.
The visuals here are really impressive, with a look that’s part paper craft and part children’s book. Fly Piko has a really unique look, and that enhances the premium feel of this game. The charming soundtrack works perfectly with the visuals in this game.
If you are a parent looking to keep tabs on what games have IAP, you should know that Fly Piko currently just has one IAP option: a Mega Box of Feathers for $8.99. You can turn off IAP in your iOS device’s settings if you want to keep your kids from depleting your bank account, $9 at a time.
Overall, this game is cute and cuddly without being cloying or saccharine. This game is ideal for adults, but will also appeal to young kids as well.
