Unpolished controls and gameplay. The challanges thrown at you are uninteresting, unappealing and sometimes frustrating. The only thing it's got going for it it's the great asthetics and cute visual.

At first when I saw this game, I though this must be that cute little platformer game.
Jumping here, jumping there, solve easy puzzle.
But I'm wrong.
The challenges in this game ain't that easy to deal with even the boss fight need skills.
There's also a time-trial level where you must race with time and you must not die.
If you die you have to restart the level.

As an Indie Games Enthuasiast, I could say this game is a great platformer game.

I love FLY'N it's a very cute game, the sound affects are adorable and the art is so beautifully done. But be WARNED this game is very challenging and difficult as you progress further through it. I got about Quarter way through and had to give up, just got to difficult for me. But if you do like a challenging beautiful and cute platformer game, then i do recommend picking up this game, even though it was difficult for me, i have absolutely no regrets having it in my library.

Believe me it's a very cute and colourful game, besides being difficult of course. And at 75% of it's a very good deal. :D

Fly'n is a puzzle platformer that delivers a delightful amount of platform and puzzle gameplay, on top of a richly designed world.

In Fly'n, players control small, cute looking creatures called Buds. There are four different kinds, which all have the same ability to double jump, glide, and switch states of the level. Each Bud has a unique ability that is used to solve certain puzzles in the game. The levels range from run and jump platforming to solving puzzles using a certain character. While things may seem easy at first, the levels get harder to be actually quite challenging. The puzzles grow to involve using more characters together in one level and more challenging level layouts. The normal levels have no timer, except for certain levels that are more linear in nature and involve outrunning a rising sea of junk. These speedrun kind of levels are the harder levels in the game, due to the strict time limits and higher bar for platforming skill. A boss battle occurs at the end of each world, complete with more puzzle platforming to navigate through and win. The levels are all fun to play through and try to solve, with levels tending to take around 5-10 minutes or maybe more depending on the pace of play.
Controling the characters feels natural and responsive at times. Sometimes, moving the Buds around feels not as refined as they might sometimes move too fast when not needed to be or don't jump as high enough. Still, the controls are solid and work well with only a few quirks that may pop up when playing the game.

The art style of Fly'n is very, very well drawn. The characters have a simplistic design with solid colors and simple shapes. On the other hand, the worlds are highly detailed with lots of color and intricate designs on the surfaces of each level. The world styles range from natural inspired designs with foilage, to more abstract designs and mechanical parts. Changing the state of the level turns the world to silhouettes or a more tinted color. The animation is also really well done both ingame and in the cutscenes. The characters themselves are simple in design, but are animated so smoothly that it feels natural. The cutscenes are also of high visual quality, owing in part that both the ingame and cutscene character data are both from the same source material. With high details with great animation and drawing style, the art style is very pleasing to look at and play with.

The music in Fly'n adds a nice backdrop to the graphical design. The songs tend to be relaxed in nature or more frantic depending on what level is going on. There is a fair variety of tracks present in the game, ranging from light, instrumental pieces to faster paced rock or electronic styles. The music does its job in adding to the style of the game, and they do sound great to listen to as well.

Fly'n does have a story, albiet a weird one. Basically, a hair dryer collects garbage and dumps them everywhere. The hair dryer dumps it on the worlds where the Buds are. It's up to the Buds to stop the hair dryer from dumping more garbage on their worlds. Anyway, the cutscenes themselves tend to be silly in nature and a little bit weird in terms of storytelling. The story isn't amazing, but tends to silly and help drive the game.

Fly'n gives a full 10 hour game with fun and challenging puzzle platforming, set in a world that looks and feels great with the art and animation quality. This game is definitely a joy to play and does provide some great puzzles, all wrapped up in very well done style for the game's setting.

Fly'n is a platform game with some puzzle elements (but not much). The graphics might look a bit childish, but this game is not. It is really challenging and a lot of fun to play. I recomend that you play this with a controller since playing with a keyboard can get really difficult because of the various button combinations you need to press.

This is one of the most enjoyable platformers I have ever played.
It takes place in a beautiful, surreal-looking world that is being corrupted by red trash which is being deployed by a weird metal creature with haird-dryer for a head (um...yea).
You take a role of one of 4 Buds, creatures native to the afforementioned world, all with a unique ability. All of them can double jump and glide, but the blue one can sing, green one can turn to a lettuce that sticks to any surface so he can climb walls and stuff, the black one can turn into a bouncy ball and the red one can dash multiple times being able to cross large distances even vertically.
The goal is to reach the end of the level while collecting as many floating seeds that simply give you score and weird glowing balls that you use to solve certain puzzles. There is also a timer and leaderboards so if you like going OCD over collecting everything and getting the best time and score possible, this game's got you covered.

There are 2 kinds of levels. In most of them, you have infinite time to finish and collect everything but once in a while the game throws the other kind at you, where you must rush upwards as fast as possible because there is red garbage rising from below that kills you if you touch it. So the pace of the game kinda alternates between slow (not if you are speedrunning, but you CAN go slow), methodical gameplay and frantic mandatory speedrunning which is something I liked, it kept me engaged.
There is also a bonus available when you don't die on those speedy levels which I found absolutely rage-inducing because some of the later ones are VERY difficult, but it does give you a reason to try and master the game so I still consider it a good thing.
Overall, I find this game great. Great visuals, interesting gameplay mechanics and the price is almost suspiciously low. I certainly recommend it.

A beautiful platformer that focuses too much on being artsy, and not enough on being a fun with clear gameplay.

There was a whole lot of focus on the art-style of the game and less on the actual game itself. There just wasn't enough of this to keep me interested in playing it until the end even after the slight change in gameplay as I progressed.

*Launches Fly'n*
Oh, Cool, an intro !
Wait... I don't understand this video... anyway, let's play !
*Hits play*
Wow ! Gorgeous game design ! It looks like I have to... wait... what do I have to do ? Ok, launch from this canon thing.
*Screen shows an analog stick*
Hey, I play with a keyboard !
*Proceed to hit every key on his keyboard*
Nothing's happening !
*reads the hint carefully*
Seems like I have to hold something and...
*Tries a thousand combinations and finally launches*
YaY ! Here we go ! Ok let's jump on that.
*Hits space*
What the... ? did it just go to sleep ? Why don't you jump ?
*Hits space again*
Ok back to normal
*Left clics*
And NOW you jump ? Left clic jump seriously ?
Ok... Let's change those key bindings this is getting annoying.
*Goes into the menu*
WHAT ? I can't change the bindings ? WTH is this ?

The list goes on and on, of the various annoyances this game will provide you. Although the game design is beautiful, the gameplay is horrible, I didn't understand most of what I was supposed to do (don't get me started on the cocoon thing) and you can't change key bindings. the difficuly balance is awful and you will get into horribly hard levels when you just figured out how to play. If you like pulling your hair out, go for it, otherwise, Avoid.

Very pretty, quite hard in places, and that bouncing bubble is a bit hellish to control. But, I persevered and I liked it. The fact that you're up against an evil hairdryer is hilarious. Time to completion (generally getting 200+ of the flowers, but with abject failure in terms of saving any creatures on the panic levels): 9.2hrs.
