Back in the day, animation was something that was done by hand. Artists would draw each and every frame to create movement. Nowadays, the process has been simplified by technology. We don’t get to see hand drawn art in the digital format very much. A Skyrocket Story is a game that features hand-drawn artwork and happens to be a lot of fun, too.
The game revolves around (you guessed it) a skyrocket. The goal is to land the rocket safely at the end of every level. Flying the rocket takes a combination of precise angles and power. Along the way you’ll run into obstacles and different tools to help you complete the levels. All of this is hand drawn.
Playing the game is pretty straightforward. First, you set your take-off angle. Then you launch the rocket and use the boosters to slightly guide the rocket to its destination. At the end of every level, you land the rocket. Some of the obstacles that appear include floating rocks. Whirlwinds, bubbles, and rips in the pages will help your rocket make its way to the end. Collect as many stars as you can to get a high score.
Another neat thing about this game is it includes a 46-page fully illustrated book. You can unlock the pages by collecting them throughout the game. It’s nice to see a paid game throw in a few extra goodies.
A Skyrocket Story is beautifully designed with hand-drawn graphics. Beyond the beautiful art, it’s also a really fun game. The simple controls and progressive difficulty make it easy to pick up and play for hours. Every level presents a different problem to solve. The game costs $1.49 and there are no in-app purchases. It’s refreshing to pay a small upfront cost for a game and never be bugged to spend more. A Skyrocket Story is worth the download if you love beautiful puzzles.
