Well, this one snuck up on us. RETRY, from Rovio’s LVL11, is now available worldwide! You can download it now from the iOS AppStore or Android’s Google Play store. Back in May of this year we announced RETRY’s soft-launch, but there hasn’t been much chatter about it since — well — until today.

RETRY is a spin on the Flappy Bird genre, in that it’s incredibly hard. With that said, it’s fun and rewarding and offers a lot more depth than Flappy Bird. I haven’t had a chance to play today’s update yet to see what, if anything, has changed. As soon as I do I will try to capture it on video and upload it here.

Until then, let us know what you think in the comments below. We’ll also include the notes from the developer.

From Rovio / LVL11

From the guys sitting in the room next to the guys who made Angry Birds, comes RETRY – a game so hard, so addictive, so old skool that you’ll think you’ve stepped into an 8-bit time machine and gone back to 1986. Totally rad!

You’re in the cockpit of a smoking, loop-the-looping, out of control, 8-bit jalopy of an airplane. Grab hold of the yoke, ace. It’s going to take raw skill and white-knuckle stunts to get through this one. Enter the danger zone!

Fly through treacherous obstacles, and earn stars to unlock new worlds. Whether it’s the verdant sloping hills of Summer or the time-bending passages of the Future, these levels are out to do one thing: stop you. Sorry, chief.

But don’t cry, you can always RETRY.

  • FLY. CRASH. REPEAT. No one said this would be easy.
  • SPIN FOR THE WIN! Loop, stall, dive – master the moves, or eternally retry.
  • COLLECT COINS! It’s the 80s – what did you expect? Don’t say Bitcoins…
  • DAILY CHALLENGES! Unlock these intense levels and humiliate your Facebook friends.
  • RETRO 8-BIT GRAPHICS! Next gen? How ‘bout first gen.
  • SLICK SYNTHESIZER SOUNDTRACK! Crank it up and hit the skies.

    @josm, I’ve updated the video above just for you. :) I would love to know what you think of (of the video). I’m still pretty new at these LP style vids, but they sure are fun.

    Awesome video Bird Leader, You’re doing good! The game is frustating, but its funny frustating :) Some tips and Tricks:

    * If you collect a coin, you can save the coin just by landing on the first checkpoint you land on, you dont have to spend it to keep it.
    * If you land up side down on a checkpoint, wait 2 seconds and it will turn automatically. And then you get the option to open the checkpoint.
    * You can land on water, if you wait 2 seconds and do nothing you will go under water (you can get out of the water and there are coins sometimes)
    * Checkpoints are open forever, but you need to land on it to save your progress from there everytime you play the level again.
    * your level didnt changed in the ad break level, you opened the checkpoint, those are for free there :)

    liked the video, hope there is more coming

    This game should come with a Broken Device insurance policy. I foresee many phones & tablets bouncing off walls in the near future.

    I just wish that there were more landing platforms and easier controls and I would give it 5 stars

    The developers did get the name of the game absolutely correct. Wonder if they had a slight smile on their faces after they decided on the outstanding name.

    I was like:
    I will never play this game again!
    Five seconds later…
    Well, let me retry this level
    (Keep repeating…)

    Oh @birdleader
    I thought your commentry on the AB Transformers #1 video was good, but this one is just too funny for words; I still have tears rolling down my face from laughing so much!

    @all
    Even if this game isn’t your thing, please please please just watch the video and give bl the thumbs up on YouTube so as to encourage him to make more of these first look game play with commentry style videos, they’re truly priceless if you’re in need of a good chuckle. ;)

    It says that my device isn’t compatible for this game. But I checked my device and its already the latest version.

    @chiiyuen0109 that means your device cant handle the game

    Anyone think there should be a guide for finding hidden coins? I’m at lvl 29 and I saw a bunch of coins and silver coins nearly out of reach.
