[prMac.com] Los Angeles, California - Holy Cow Studio today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Flying Mania 1.0.1, an update to their fun-to-play arcade game for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. Based on the flappy bird style of gameplay, Flying Mania challenges players to navigate through 4 different thematic levels of gameplay: Forest, City, Desert, and Ice. Along each route, gems can be collected which can be used to unlock additional levels or characters. Flying Mania also includes a Store where in-app purchases of additional gems can be made.
There are five different characters that players can unlock: Olli the Owl, Moja Joja the Monkey, Torpedo the Shark, Smarto the Elephant, and Zi Zi the Panda. Attired in different accessories, each character features its own sound and unique way of flying. Players must tap the screen of their device to make their animal fly and avoid obstacles in its path. If their animal hits one of the obstacles, the game is over.
