Skypeace on 3DS Looks Like a Rival For Bird Mania 3D

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Don't stop flying

There is a small but dedicated group of gamers in the Nintendo Life community that particularly enjoys Bird Mania 3D and its superior seasonal sequel Bird Mania Christmas. They're simple, budget priced endless runners — or fliers, to be more accurate — where the only task is to navigate the treacherous route and set a new high score. It can be downright compulsive, naturally.

Fans of those games may hope for a localisation of Skypeace, in that case, which is being brought to the Japanese eShop by Sonic Powered. This one doesn't seem to be endless — having ten distinct stages, instead — but does have similar mechanics of flying and collecting coins; your character is on a rocket-propelled surfboard, too.

Sonic Powered has stepped into the Western market recently, if you want encouragement, with the bizarrely-named I am an Air Traffic Controller Airport Hero Hawaii, so there is certainly hope.

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.

I have bird mania 3D and it's pretty fun so I'll get this if it comes to NA at a reasonable price.

not really my type of game but i liked the graphics, and did anyone else think that the laser shooting orbs were dead-ringers for the drones from that oblivion movie with tom cruise? just with red trim instead of grey/blue right?

If they made an "endless flyer" that uses gyroscopic controls similar to the attacks in Dream Team, I would buy it in a heartbeat.
