Thank you so much for the review!

On a side note, I played the hell out of Netherworld on DOS when I was younger. I loved the surrealism of that game. I didn't know Jukka Tapanimäki had passed away though. That's a shame.

The music is Jupiter (from The Planets) by Gustav Holst and Requiem by Mozart.


Now I can go home and tell my music teacher I did pay attention in class.

hehehe We always want to remember that because normally you beat our asses (although not this year hehehe). I fought and suffered. I fought Odin, I fought Danes. My mouse hand was sweating. But then, finally, I got to build my own Globen!

Jeah, that was sad. He was such a positive character and a genius.

I really wanted to use only Swedish composed music for the game, and I found some great pieces (Joseph Kraus is awesome!), but couldn't find public domain recordings of them. I don't even know if that mattered for this contest, but it doesn't hurt to play it safe.

The intro / boss battle piece is a heavily edited version of Anton Bruckner's Symphony no. VIII, Mvt. IV, if your curious.

He probably shopped at IKEA at least once though.

Definitely loving this game. I think it's got all the right factors to be a hit on the iPhone too.

We're planning a much more ambitious version of Flying Sweden for PC, Mac and iOS. Taking a short break (too many other great uDevGames to play!), then we'll get right on it.

Would you care for some opinions from a swede? There are a few things that could be... different?
