In this addictive and well-designed platformer, you must free flies from the grasp of evil little green men. Flyonoid takes place in a frozen arctic world. You control a well-armed robot who must hop from platform to platform, avoiding mines, grenades, and gunfire while you blast away at the aliens. Each board has several jars of flies, and you must tip them all over before you can head to the next level. In terms of graphics, the game is impressive; in particular, the ice sculptures in the background display good detail. The mysterious, often cinematic music suits the game s vibe just fine, though you can turn it down if you find it distracting. The game also lets you choose from easy or regular modes, the former of which offers numerous power-ups and special weapons. Since the regular option seemed pretty tough, we d recommend less-experienced gamers work their way up to that. Unfortunately, Flyonoid s demo restriction seems quite stingy, only letting you play for half an hour. We also wish the game had asked our permission before placing unsolicited shortcuts on our desktop. But if you had as much fun playing this funny game as much as we did, you'll probably be able to overlook those issues.
