Thank you VaragtP for sending us this game to review!

Fjong and his friends are bird-like creatures who cannot fly but wish to do so. If they consume a magical candy, they can float in the air like helium balloons. In order to reach this magical candy, they’ll need your help flinging them there Angry Birds style.

Surprisingly, Fjong is not available on mobile devices though its control scheme, simplicity, and star leveling system are very similar to most Android/iOS games out there. Mouse controls are available for those without touch screen monitors, but my son and I preferred touch controls. However, some of the levels were very frustrating even with touch controls.

In total, there are twenty levels and each of them have a couple of Steam achievements that can be unlocked for them. Depending on how many flings it takes to get your creatures to their candy, you’ll be awarded up to three stars. If you have a perfect level, you’ll get a purple star. Steam achievements are earned for each level with a purple or a three star rating. If you’re a perfectionist, you’ll be tapping the retry icon for every two and one star attempt.


Strong Points: Cute graphics; small file size; lots of Steam achievements
Weak Points: Only twenty levels; frustrating controls
Moral Warnings: Cartoon violence

At first, you’ll only control Fjong, but later on in the game you’ll have to manage his red and yellow friends too. Each creature flings differently so you’ll have to take that into account. They all have different body shapes and some can fit through places that the others cannot. Many of the levels have pressure plates that need to be triggered in order to open up the bucket filled with magical candy. A few levels have obstacles like cacti to avoid at all costs.

The thirteenth level was very frustrating for me and my son. This level has a rotating platform that takes some effort to fling the creatures onto in time. As annoying as the rotating platform is, the biggest issue with this level is the touch screen controls. When trying to control one creature in close proximity to the other, the wrong bird is gets moved and tallies up precious movement points. As a result of these poor controls, earning a three star rating is quite challenging.

Other than frustrating people of all ages, this game is clean enough to be played by anyone with enough patience.

Visually this game is very colorful and cute. The vertical screen layout is better suited for tablets and phones than widescreen desktop monitors. The black borders didn’t bother me as I’d rather see those than mess around with switching my screen to a vertical alignment.

With a meager install size of 18MB, I wasn’t expecting much visually or audibly. The sound effects and background music are soothing. The creatures make cute noises and I like the cheering upon completing a level.

In the end, Fjong is a simple game that won’t take too long to complete if you’ve got the skills and patience for it. It can be a great way to rack up Steam achievements. The asking price is $1.99 but I have seen it much lower during Holiday sales and in bundle packages.
