If you like this game you'll love High Flyer Death Defyer HD for iPad 2 or the standard iPhone4 version of the game.

I just got this, seems to run pretty well on my 4th Gen Touch... unlike their main game, HighFlyer DeathDefyer, it is not ONLY for iPad and iPhone 4/4S.

The controls are decent (better than I remember HFDD to be...) - probably because the main game had its controls worked with as well.

there's 35 "levels" - I guess you could call em... but they're more like tutorial training missions...

got pretty tired of it after the 6th or 7th mission... they each take about 15-20 seconds to complete...

you can do them in any order (going from the 1st mission and jumping to the 35th one is doable...) - so I jumped around, just to see if I would hit a mission that lasted longer...

no luck.

I'd say save your $$, unless you REALLY enjoyed HighFlyer DeathDefyer and would like some extra training missions... or just want to support the devs.


should also mention that the collision detection is HORRIBLE
