Paper Plane! is a frustratingly addictive game for Windows Phone, iOS, and Android

If you like games that make you want to throw your phone out the window, we found another one for you. It reminds us a little bit of Flappy Bird, but we assure you, it's different. 'Paper Plane!' is a difficult game with the simple goal of avoiding incoming platforms as your plane flies downwards into the unknown. What's also cool about the game is that it was launched along with versions for iOS and Android.

We've installed 'Paper Plane!' on our green Lumia 1520. Go watch our gameplay video.

Controls are dead easy. The paper plane is automatically flying downwards. Tap and hold the right side of the screen to glide right or tap and hold the left side to glide left.

There are moving platforms or beams that you'll need to avoid. The game ends if you crash. A simple click of a button brings you back to the beginning, so this game can get addictive.

Don't worry about your plane's wings touching the beams. It doesn't end the game. An easy guide to follow is to not let the middle of the planes touch anything. That will end the game.

You earn coins after passing through barriers, which seems like a new feature for this kind of game. Coins you earn every time you play build up and you can use them to buy new planes. The paper plane that costs the least is only 200 coins, so you'll be able to update quickly.

If you don't have the patience and really want one of the other planes available, you can purchase coins with real money. For example, 1,000 coins cost 99 cents.

Paper Plane! is a free download from the Windows Phone Store. There's an ad that takes up the top of the screen, but it doesn't get in the way of gameplay. Go check it out if you have some free time and let us know what you think!
