We covered Feline Frenzy by white rabbit few days ago, seems there are more startups than I had originally thought who are working on facebookÂ Â domain.
Ohh and I must take time to appreciate their website, its wonderful, flash based but really well thought out. I have liked a site (flash based) after a long time so do go over there too.
Back to the game Fly By is a simple 3d Game in which you are in control of an aircraft which has to dodge sky scrappers and hot air balloons while flying through the city, Game has a nice simplistic feeling to it, some people might argue that its too simple but I have seen some people spend hours on the flash based crazy taxi game just trying to make more score than their friends. And the game has that teasing element where you would want to play just for the heck of it, because as soon as you cross some of your friend a story is published on their profile (very nice touch) telling that you have surpassed them and if it takes few minutes for him to better you i think he will definitely spend that time.
Here is a video of the game play and its elements.
It seems this game is gaining traction right away they have a very impressive user base of 2700 people within a couple of weeks of launch, this shows the scale with which a new app can gain traction in facebook.
Few words about the organization, they are a group of 5 very young and recent graduates (Graduated in 2009) from same batch of Fast. So we canâ€™t even say they jumped the ship for startup they never got on the cruise liner of a corporate straight from the frying pan of college to the fire of entrepreneurship . They started with service based organization but have quickly moved over to the dark side of product, which is a very healthy sign for our industry. But their site and their work does not in any way show signs of immaturity. I wish them best of luck and hope we have more like these coming out of our colleges.
