Wombi Airplane is a delightful universal app that allows children to fly dangerous missions to retrieve treasures floating by balloon in the sky.
My family loves Wombi apps, as they are brightly colored, wonderfully stylized language-neutral apps that are always engaging as well as charmingly quirky.
Wombi Airplane invites users to build and then fly their own airplane on a mission to collect boxes of important treasures attached to balloons drifting in the sky in need of being collected.
I love the details included in Wombi Airplane as first one needs to choose from various parts which will make up the airplane. Five different sections of this plane are included, such as body, wing or propeller, and I appreciate how choices include both pink or purple selections as well as the harder black or red-type stylings which are offered to create a fantasy or more realistic vintage plane – a detail Wombi fans may remember from Wombi Treasures – a crossover that I enjoy.
A puzzle aspect is included as users add these parts to the plane in the correct places, with slight translucent highlights showing where to attach these plane pieces, complete with subtle sparking as these pieces are soldered on – a nice touch.
Now that the plane is complete, players are ready for their mission and I am happy to say that the plane that is created is the plane that users actually fly, which I really enjoy.
I also love the ambiance present during this flight, from the suspenseful, slightly period music included which is reminiscent of the theme from an action movie such as Indiana Jones, to the beautiful landscapes one flies through, including a stormy nighttime, snow-covered mountain, as well as a desert scene, each containing obstacles one wants to avoid like mountain peaks or tree tops as well as flying birds and an evil skunk flying in a hot air balloon – the foil of this game, who is intent on crashing the airplane.
For the object of this game, do pick up the boxes hanging by a balloon by flying into them as these are treasures to be opened later. A perfect game consists of three boxes saved that are opened at the conclusion of this game.
The controls of this section are simple as a tap will keep the plane airborne, and I find the best way to fly this plane is with little taps to try to keep the airplane mid-screen, avoiding obstacles high and low, as well as leaving space above and below to navigate in order to avoid danger.
I would also like to tell readers of a free universal, Wombi Helicopter, to celebrate Wombi’s second year at developing terrific children’s apps.
Wombi Helicopter is very similar to Wombi Airplane, allowing one to build one’s own helicopters as well as to go on a mission – here above a beautiful urban skyline to save animals unwittingly traveling to space via balloon while avoiding obstacles.
Wombi Helicopter is a great app not only to show app users what Wombi Airplane has to offer as well as illustrating the high quality of application that Wombi delivers.
Because of this, I can easily recommend both Wombi Airplane as well as the free app Wombi Helicopter.
I hope readers take the time to get to know Wombi Apps. Their apps include some of the most charming and engaging role-playing apps available – well worth looking into.Posted in: By Age Range, By App Feature, Creativity, Just For Fun, Parents and Kids, Preschool, Reviews, Toddlers
