Summary

The "simple but addictive" formula is a good way to describe this very entertaining game.

The Good

The simplicity! It's easy to pick up and play. Tutorial levels are included as well. In this game the goal is to go trough all worlds which consist of three stages each. Each stage is course of tight corners, narrow passages etc. you need to go trough these courses with a helicopter as Kururin, a little bird whose brothers and sisters are taken to other worlds.You'll find them in stage 3 of each world. But there is a problem: Your helicopter's propeller blades make it difficult to go trough narrow passages since they are rotating constantly so you will hit the walls easily. The trick is to get trough each course without getting hit thrice, which will destroy your helicopter. You will have to time your moving. For die-hards there is a challenge to get all stages cleared without getting hit once and also collecting all helicopter skins (you can paint them) and save all Kururin's siblings. Also included are the short but tricky challenge-mode courses (can be played over game-link cable). A hard mode is included as well with longer propeller blades. These modes are all a lot lot of fun and add to the replay value of an otherwise easy title. Graphics are OK as well for an early GBA title. They are rich and colorful and everything is animated well. Gameplay is great in this game which is essential in a game like this

The Bad

It could have been made longer but as mentioned before there is enough replay so that didn't bother me much. The story is very simple but that's not so important for a game like this.

The Bottom Line

A wildly original and entertaining game! I can easily recommend this!
