Fledgeling Heroes is a fun flying game where you tap or press to guide a part through landscapes and collect coins. You can swim, sprint and soar, defeat dastardly dragons, unlock wondrous new worlds, and explore limitless levels in the Lab.

NotesAccessibility Notes

The game is easy to play, although to advance levels you have to collect all the coins which can be harder than expected.

Narrative is depicted in visual storytelling without words. There is some reading and the text is light on a dark brown background. You can't adjust the size of the text. When a character is saying something it appears above their head in a speech bubble.

You press a single button (or tap the screen anywhere on iOS) to flap your wings. You can also hold that button (or hold a finger on the screen) to trigger other interactions like gliding.
