Overview

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.

Along the way you meet a menagerie of feathered friends, each with their own story to tell, as they dodge dastardly pirate lizards. The controls are a simple tap or hold for all of them, but they each have different abilities: Macaus flu, Kingfishers dive, Penguins swim, and Quails run.

You can also make your own levels with the built-in editor and then share them with your friends. You can also customize your bird's colours, which is a little like a painting game in its own right.

There are over 90 levels where younger players can work to get to the end or more experienced can go for a fast time or high score. The level of detail and super simple one-button controls combine with clever interactions and gameplay to make this excellent fun!

 
This game is good if you want to set your own difficulty, make video games, nurture imagination in primary school children or play with one button.

Fledgling Heroes is in These Lists

In addition to the similar games listed above, which have been linked to this game specifically in the database, you may find games with a similar theme to Fledgling Heroes in the following lists:

One Button Games

The games here can be played with a single button. Although ranging in difficulty they are a good place to start for those needing simpler controls.

It should be noted that many of these games need to be started with more than one button. Some are played by tapping at a fixed point on a touchscreen.

For those needing alternative access there are many possibilities with an accessibility switch. These "switches" come in many shapes and sizes including jumbo buttons, super-sensitive finger switches and sound sensors. In some cases, the spacebar or a Bluetooth keyboard can work just fine. If the player can activate the control and if it can be connected to the games machine, then one-button play becomes a possibility.

This list was compiled with the help of Barrie Ellis, who runs One Switch. On that site you can find equipment to enable a far wider range of games to be played by accessibility switch users. OneSwitch also supports a range of other accessible gaming solutions.
 

Make Your Own Video Games

It can seem like making a video-games is only possible with a degree and lots of complicated equipment. The games on this list let you design and share your own levels just using your controller and tools like Scratch.

Image 174You can unleash your creativity with these games that enable you to make your own games. Start with something familiar and try making your own levels in Mario Maker or get to grips with building in Minecraft. Build your confidence and creativity and soon you’ll be creating more complicated games in Dreams or LittleBigPlanet.

We put this list together with the help of the brilliant National Videogame Museum, (NVM). The World's First Fully-Playable Cultural Centre Dedicated to Games. If you want more information about making your own videogames, the NVM has free resources to get you started.
 

Designed For Easier Play

These games go above and beyond just adding a few difficulty settings. They consider a wide range of ability and accessibilities by offering customisable difficulty settings as well as special low pressure or assist modes that aid progress.
 

Nurture Child-Like Imagination in 3-6 Year-Olds

These games are for children under seven years old, who will, with some help, discover activities they want to try that will expand their imaginations while establishing the role of your guidance and engagement as part of the gaming world as they grow up. The more open imagination of young children lends itself to games that offer an open world. Rather than forcing the player in a particular direction open world games let players explore wherever they want. The games here offer unusual and age-appropriate experiences that are often educational but keep the emphasis on the sheer joy of interactive play rather than hard learning.
