Fly&Poop

Available on: iOS
Genre: Adventure

Fly&Poop

This premium game puts you in the shoes of a persistent pigeon who will stop at nothing to rescue Dovy, who's been kidnapped by nefarious forces. You'll have to enlist the help of the city folk to get to the highest skyscraper in the city and rescue her. Of course, while you can do your diligent part to help people out by delivering messages and the like, you can also poop on them, because why the heck not?

The game also features dangers lurking around every corner like fast cars and pesky cats. Thankfully, the visuals of the game are as vibrant and lighthearted as its theme, so while getting hit by a truck seems pretty painful, you won't have to feel too bad for poor little Chester - he's a trooper (and a pooper).
