Free Fallin´ - Falling November 2nd (iPhone, iPod Touch)



Get ready for the jump of your life!

Steer the adventurous flying squirrel on a free fall from the sky to the ground.
Watch out for many obstacles on the way such as rocks, lizards, tunnels, monsters and more!

The controls are very easy and simple - all you need to do is tilt the device.

Collect points, get all the achievements and most importantly fly the squirrel safely to the ground!

Free Fallin´ will be available at $0.99 through the App Store and Android Market Wednesday 2nd November 2011.

Version 1.1 includes four extensive levels:
Learning to Fly – Big Cliff – Oggy Forest – The Landing.

Do you believe you can fly?

Free Fallin' name contest is still running. Send your name suggestions before 28th October.

lol, my wife used to have a flying squirrel, but it "flew" away one day. Art looks fun. Think you might offer an alternate control scheme? Slide your finger back and forth on the screen to control him? Could even add some drag for difficulty.

Thanks
I'm the artist and project leader in Free Fallin'. We actually had that function in the game at one point, but I took it out, because the tilting controls were more fun and fit the game better and it was also the original idea how to play it. Sorry

If you have any other questions, I'll be happy to answer.

Cool, I may check it out.

In regards to the tilting vs touch controls. I'm just saying it's always nice to give players an option, because "fun" for one might not be for another. But you can't please everyone, and it IS your game.

Nice work!

If this has touch controls i'll probably get it but tilt, urrgh !

Still wish someone would do a similar game to the arcade classic 'Toobin'.
