For those looking for a Mario experience on the iPhone and iPad, Mikey Boots is the answer for you. This third installment in the Mikey series (check them all out here) takes you through dozens of levels wearing your flying boots! Controlling Mikey is as simple as tapping which direction you want him to fly. Watch out for spikes, missiles, and baddies as you work your way to each level’s goal. Then come back to race your last attempt and beat your previous time. Mikey Boots keeps you coming back to beat your score, collect all the coins, and find each level’s hidden shorts!
