Touch Fly Review
- Fun and quick 'endless' gameplay.
- Smooth 2.5D style visuals; good blending of 3D and 2D artwork.
- Live ranking provides decent replay incentive, but not tied to Openfeint or Game Center.
Touch Fly fills that niche hole of the kind of game you'd like to play when you don't have time for anything larger; sadly it joins many others in this regard, but it's a fun alternative to add in to the mix.

- App Store Info
With so many huge Triple-A titles and even amazing Independent titles providing iOS gamers with such great value, it's hard to remember at times that you're playing games on a mobile device. That may sound silly, but not every game needs to reach for these lofty standards and Touch Fly by Zepetto sticks to a simple endless formula for those after a quick, fun experience on the go.
Touch Fly re-ignites the flames of 'The Hare and the Tortoise' race with a bit of jet-fuel as the Tortoise decides to ruin the race by using a rocket-pack while throwing turtles at the pursuing Hare. Touching the screen will give you a boost, lifting you up, while letting go will allow you to softly float down the screen. Each turtle has a different speed and path they'll take on screen, however the Hare can pick up weapons of various types to clear them out and a bomb to clear the screen entirely. Large runs of candy also act as fuel for a temporary jet-boost that can be used to push up your score as you eat tonnes of carrots that flood the screen.
Oddly enough the game itself is a mix of 3D and 2D elements and this works surprisingly well as the characters and special effects are animated smoothly, while high detail 2D sprites help to add character to the visuals. A live ranking system also lets you know where you are compared to others around the world, though this can be turned off if you're being careful about your data use.
Touch Fly isn't a fantastic arcade title that will remain a staple for long on most people's iDevices, but there is something utterly charming about its simplicity that, in the very least, makes it worth a few spins before another game grabs your attention.
