rovio_retry_icon

Rovio is primarily known for their Angry Birds line of games. Their newest title, RETRY, invites players to take flight in a different manner, this time in an “8-bit jalopy of an airplane.” Rovio really plays up the retro aspects of the title, pointing out the 8-bit graphics look, the collection of coins as you work through levels, and a synthesized soundtrack.

RETRY gives players the opportunity to fly an old plane through a variety of challenging levels packed full of obstacles. To succeed, players will have to master a variety of moves like loops, stalls and dives. Along the way players will be able to collect coins and stars to unlock new levels or upgrade your plane with mods.

Like so many games that seem to hit the market these days, Rovio appears to be trying to appeal to the crowd that wants a game that is simple to learn but frustratingly difficult to master similar to Flappy Bird.

You can check out a few screenshots below. RETRY is free and can be downloaded using the links below, but it does offer in-app purchases.
