These boots are made for flyin’
Imagine Jetpack Joyride in levels instead of an endless corridor, and you’re close to Mikey Boots. Mikey flies using his jet boots – press the right side of the screen and he flies up and to the right; press the left he flies up and to the left. Let go and Mikey falls in the direction he was last facing. Simple! Well, except for all the narrow, spike-lined gaps you have to fly through and hazards you need to avoid.
It’s essentially a time trial game, tasking you with getting through its maze-like levels in the fastest time possible to earn stars – though just getting through them in one piece can be tough in later levels. Things get brilliantly frantic, though, with daring turns, narrow misses and satisfaction in victory thanks to hard but fair level design. It can be frustrating in its hardest levels (and a little easy at the start), but it’s great short-burst twitch gaming. Matt Bolton
Fun flying action with some great twisting levels. There are rather stern challenges at the end, too.
