With three main worlds to get through, Fledgling Heroes isn’t a very long game, but it is a lot of fun while it lasts. If you’re after a meatier experience, or even one that perhaps isn’t quite as cute as this, you might want to look elsewhere. For everyone else, Flappy Bird may well have struck gold when it was released 7 years ago, but Fledgling Heroes rises head and shoulders above it.
Playing Fledgling Heroes, it's hard to shake the feeling that I haven't somehow time-traveled to the past. It feels like the sort of game I might've enjoyed reviewing seven years ago as a mobile port to the 3DS or Wii U eShop. Except it's 2020, and this is an original game on the Switch. Runners have come a long way, and players expect more from the genre's console counterparts.
