Walkthrough Guide on Up In The Sky
Up In The Sky is a cute game, but a little grinder compared to other launch or flight games. The cost of the upgrades is a little expensive, considering how many are required even to get past the second or third altitude in the beginning. For me, I would recommend getting the Cash and Star Density upgrades first to earn more cash. Normal flight becomes a little useless, once you unlock engine. All you have to do is max out Helmet, Aerodynamics, Stars, Corn, Grain and the rest. Now launch and get your Corn engine going right away. Leave your helmet off until you're about halfway between 3rd altitude; you shouldn't have encountered any birds to slow you down before 3rd altitude. Then, put the helmet on and don't take your fingers off of Up and the engine. You should blast clean through to the other planet and win the game. For those that don't know, you have to click the helmet to activate. I didn't realize until a while too.
