The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Flying around as a paper airplane is relatively easy, tilting the mobile device to steer. It can be challenging to line the plane up perfectly and snatch paper clips out of the air, but a tap of the screen can slow it down to almost a standstill and allow for pretty precise turning.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Paper Pilot is a simple, but appealing flying game. From the point of view of a paper airplane, kids will soar through the air of offices and warehouses with the goal of grabbing paper clips along the way. There's not much more to it than that, but it's very enjoyable in a Zen-like way.

Is it any good?

It was only a matter of time before someone made a paper airplane app, but PAPER PILOT is unexpected in its beauty and simplicity. No worries about setting trajectories, factoring wind shear, or any other complicated details like that -- you just soar. Fly around a strangely silent-but-lovely office and collect the paper clips. There's skill involved, as you're supposed to be aiming for specific time limits, but even if you don't earn any medals, you can still get a lot of enjoyment out of this oddly pleasing experience.
