Go To

Flight is an Adobe Flash video game designed by Krin Juangbhanich released in 2010. In it, a girl named Sandy is lonely during Christmas, so she throws a paper plane with a letter for Santa saying she wants to see her mother. As one would expect, as the plane flies through the world, other people take it and change it as well. This is a standard launch game with the plane being thrown each day. The main source of money is stars, though there are other items that can affect flight, such as cranes, windmills, and jetstreams.


This game provides examples of:

  • The Cameo: Several other flash game characters appear after transforming, including the Turtle and the Hedgehog.
  • Challenge Run: The game encourages beating it as fast as possible with several in-game achievements, such as clearing England in 8 days or under.
  • Character Customisation: The plane's color scheme and pattern can be customised.
  • Cosmetic Award: There are 24 in-game achievements, though they only purpose they serve is being colorful icons.
  • The End Is Nigh: After the Egyptian man receives the plane, he looks at the drawing of a man and a woman near a fire and misinterprets it as some kind of catastrophe, after which he writes "THE END IS NEAR." on it.
  • Game-Breaking Bug: Throwing the plane backwards results in a game freeze.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: Cutscenes always show the default plane model, even if it was upgraded to a higher level or customised.

  • Left Hanging: The plot the whole game started with - Sandy wanting to be with her mother on Christmas. What happened with it, seeing as Santa received Yamato's composition and not the letter asking him for it she originally sent him?
  • Money Multiplier: Getting cranes multiplies the amount of money earned for a short time for a maximum of 5x.
  • Mundane Made Awesome: This game takes throwing a paper airplane and turns it into a launch game with stars and boosting.
  • Street Musician: Yamato is a Japanese guitarist who plays music on the streets in hopes of getting some money and keeps it in his instrument case. He ends up getting the paper plane and writing his composition in it, beginning the final stretch of the game.
