Sago Mini Forest Flyer

Okay, I want to be clear here. It’s a children’s game. It’s not designed for anyone with a brain capacity, bigger than the one of an eight year-old kid. If watching cute things fly around isn’t for you, don’t waste your time. On the other hand…

I don’t really know what to say about Sago Mini Forest Flyer, because there’s so little of actual game in here, it’s almost on par with virtual slot machines, and actually has similar target audiences, both requiring an adult overseer, and easily distracted by shiny objects. There are no shiny objects in this game, however, but a single, damn cute flying bird thing that you have to control. There’s only a single level, and it’s the one thing that makes an otherwise fine children’s game look pretty cheap, because this single level is quite short. There are absolutely no challenges in the game, nothing to beat and nothing to overcome. It’s just a small level of a forest, where you navigate by tapping wherever you want, or by dragging the bird around, looped on itself, so if you start going right, you’ll end up returning to the point from where you started, from the left. Whatever gameplay Sago Mini Forest Flyer suggests, comes from exploration. There are lots of different moving and inanimate objects and encounters that often spawn a short animated reaction from the bird, 99% of which are really adorable, and 1% of which is that one part, where it poops from a branch with a somewhat unnerving flushing sound. It’s all fun, to be fair, and if your child is excited with the little bird he controls, it’s probably going to take a while, before the game bores him, but on the other hand, if you’re an adult, wishing to play along with your child, I think that it’s going to be a bit too simple for your tastes. By the way, the developers hidden several tips for how to best enjoy the little game with your little one, and it’s available by clicking a “for adults” note on the top of the main menu, and then swiping with two distant fingers to the right side of the screen – to be fair, it’s an unusual precaution, since the page doesn’t contain anything unsuitable for a child (to my great disappointment).

Sago Mini Forest Flyer features simple, but cute and colourful graphics, and some great sound works, neither of which particularly present the game as impressive, but are still quite good for a children’s game. The bird is undeniably cute, and its animations are definitely going to spawn some “aww”-s from any adult, as short as they are. All in all, it’s a nice, simple, but very short entertainment for small children and small-headed adults. Needless to say, I enjoyed it.
