Playing as a mailman doesn't sound very exciting on paper, but in "Air Mail" you're delivering packages while piloting an old fashioned WWI-style biplane. Reminiscent of the classic Super Nintendo arcade flight game "Pilotwings," this iOS game casts you in the role of Scoop, a boy pilot who must navigate a series of missions involving picking up and dropping off mail, collecting crystals, and avoiding would-be enemies. The story feels light as air and the action gets repetitive, but "Air Mail's" colorful graphics look gorgeous and the game maintains a certain kind of charm in small doses.
