Guide Sir Benfro and his brilliant balloon through fantastical new worlds filled with weird and wonderful creatures.

As a naturalist, scientist and explorer, Sir Benfro has made some of the most important discoveries of his generation. Without him we would have no idea that instead of laying eggs, the female Stingomp knits her offspring from the laces of old pairs of sneakers.

Fly Sir Benfro through beautiful new lands. Float into forests, across oceans and down into the centre of the Earth. But take care! You’re never far from bumping into the next bizarre beast.

Magical fireflies power Sir Benfro’s balloon. Fly as fast as you can to keep collecting the fireflies and reach the end of each adventure.

- A one touch game control that’s easy to pick up.
- 4 adventures: Yellow Leaves, Forest, Islands and Underground.
- Learn more about the creatures you’ve discovered in the Spotter’s Guide.
- A game for all ages. Three difficulty settings: Beginner, Brilliant and Bonkers.

Not as hard as people say it is.

I love this game. The graphics are beautiful. The price is unbeatable. The lack of In app purchases is refreshing, and as I said it's beautiful. I love that it's free, but I would definitely be willing to pay for it. I'm just sad that these devs haven't made other games.

Beautiful Game

I'm surprised that more people haven't rated this.
This game is absolutely gorgeous and fun with amazing visuals. The art style is fantastic and unique, coupled with the game's simple yet challenging mechanics make for a wonderful time.
