Enjoy learning about the dynamics of flight, as you control a beautiful albatross soaring over the ocean.
Aero! is an educational toy designed to teach basic concepts of aerodynamics.
With two fingers, you can directly control the angle of an albatross's wing, causing changes in lift forces and allowing the bird to ascend or descend. Once you've got the hang of basic elevation changes, you can switch to Flight Mode, where you independently control the albatross's wings using thumb-sliders along each side of the screen.
This product is a conceptual study in developing a new form of education using games as the base medium.
What's New in Version 1.7
A Really Good Stress Reliever
This is a really fun app once you get the hang of it. It's a little challenging to do things like turn at first but then it becomes really fun when you finally get it. It's good to learn about beginning aerodynamics or just as a stress reliever. The physics are pretty realistic. I just wish you could dive a little bit into the water before dying because it would be nice to go in and out of the waves. Simple yet fantastic app overall 👍🏽
Good quality. Nice idea, though..
There's something in this that just makes me feel like there's a very big lack of effort put into this. Not to burn the thought, it's a really good game you have to get the hang of and get the mechanics. It's part educational because it explains the flight of the average bird, but I kind of want more. Could you make some kind of extra challenging sequel or prequel? It'd be appreciated and more highly-rated :)
Most amazing flight simulator I have ever experienced. I would gladly spend money on the full version, which I am aware is being developed. Take your time, and I will be sure to check on the website every now and then.
