DescriptionBygg Flygplan med Mulle Meck is the third game in the series featuring the children's book character Mulle Meck (known as Gary Gadget in the US). The gameplay is about building a plane from various (unlikely) parts, and flying missions for his friends to get more parts for the plane as a reward. The setting is a rural area where the main character lives, with his friends in locations at short flying distances away on a map.
The main character Mulle Meck starts outside his hangar, with you as an invisible handyman to do the work. The available parts are inside the hangar, and needs to be taken outside to be assembled on a rotatable stand. If you are missing some vital part, you get a hint on what is lacking when you try to fly.
The game has an educational part explaining the principles of flight to help you select the proper parts for your plane, and the beginning of aviation history, though the realism factor is low, as the plane can be built of very odd bits and still fly fine, but varying the parts give the plane a different performance. When you take off, the scene changes to an overhead 3D-map, with a simplified instrument board on the lower screen; the fuel runs out quickly, and you need to refuel at your home base, so you will return there often. If you fly low, there are birds around you, and the hills can be crashed into, which means you'll start again at the home base.
On the map there are red dots which are locations of interest to visit, with airports. Once you get close, you see a mast with a windsock, and flying low over it switches you to a landing scene, where you can reduce speed and stop. Often there is a friendly character at the spot that Mulle can talk to, and get a mission from, like delivering air mail to someone else. There is no real guidance, you have to explore the map yourself to find out where all the characters are located, since you get fetch/deliver missions quite often, and sometimes the distance is further off than the fuel lasts.
There is a quick-way to warp to the home base without crashing from lack of fuel, by using a toolbox in a corner of the screen. You can only keep one plane at a time, and need to scavenge it for parts if you want to build another. Since the accumulated spare parts are quite a handful, there are shelves for keeping some order in the hangar. It is possible to save the variants you have already built for quick recall, and share them over the internet with your friends.
Originally there were also extra aircraft items to download from the publishing company's home site, but the site is now offline. One can also get several diplomas: for landing on water, landing on snow & ice, a racing diploma, aerial photography diploma, a pioneering diploma, and an honorary membership diploma from a flying circus.
