My Paper Plane 3 is an excellent 3D action game for iPhone and iPad. In the game you play as a paper plane flying through beautifully rendered courses, grabbing stars and dodging obstacles. There are 5 worlds: Canyon Town, Sapphire Coast, Fable Forest, Capital City and Magma Mines. Each world is oozing with personality which is punctuated by a thumping original soundtrack.
After a quick tutorial that lets you get accustomed to the very accurate accelerometer control scheme, you are presented with a classically inspired “World Map” screen. From there, you’ll begin your adventure by earning medals and unlocking new areas.
My Paper Plane 3 on a whole looks like it was inspired by classic console flyers and that's a great thing! Instead of shooting, however, you’ll be challenged to pick up every single star that comes your way, racking up combos and points.
The power-ups in the game range from the expected speed-boost, to a tiny rainbow that shoots your plane up above the clouds where you... well I won’t spoil the surprise. Let’s just say the game has a great sense of humor and never really takes itself too seriously.
You can choose form one of the seven available paper planes, which you’ll unlock by progressing through the game. Two of the most striking ones are the Space Shuttle (R.I.P. old friend) and a paper version of a B2 stealth bomber.
My Paper Plane 3 is very enjoyable to play. It just feels right all around, from the stomping bluegrass soundtrack of Canyon Town, to skyscrapers and pizza shops of Capital City, everything about this game just screams FUN! My Paper Plane 3 is a universal app, and currently Wavecade slashed the price to $0.99 for the holidays.
