- Basic endless horizontal SHMUP gameplay.
- Complete missions to level up.
- Easy to use controls.
- A few noticeable bugs on OS4 (soon to be updated).
- Low challenge gameplay, takes a long time to build up.
FlyChick is a cute, simple and easy alternative to most hardcore SHMUPs available on the App Store for casual gamers, but it'd be nice if those after a challenge were also supported.

FlyChick is an interesting take on endless gameplay by #App and combines RPG elements with horizontally scrolling SHMUP gameplay to keep you hooked. As you destroy enemies or complete 'missions' your chick will also upgrade, gaining a bit of extra health and changing his appearance to show just how bad-ass he's becoming.
FlyChick uses a tap-to-fly system while automatically firing your weapon. Holding down will allow you to fly higher, while rhythmic taps help to keep you flying relatively straight. Enemies various coins when they die and if you collect them in the correct order you're given temporary invincibility and can plow head-long in to oncoming birds. Sadly this invincibility doesn't extend to flying too high or too low and when collected power-ups allow you to kill enemies in one hit your screen will be scattered with coins, making it hard to navigate without breaking the chain for your current mission.
The art-style is fantastic, with bright digitally painted backgrounds and lots of enemy variety. There are a few hiccups with OS4 on the current release, causing the backgrounds to show up too darkly, but an update is already in the pipe to fix this issue as well as an option to disable to tweet-on-tap sound effect that can get annoying after a while.
FlyChick can be a bit too easy and it'd be nice if leveling up had a more appreciable affect on your chick, but for most casual gamers this is still a fun, relaxing title to enjoy.
