Jetman Jack Goes FREE

Hey everyone, I wanted to announce here about the limited time price reduction for my app, Jetman Jack. We have officially been in the app store for two months (at 12:01 tonight) and to celebrate we are going to go FREE for a day (maybe two!)!!!! So give it a go and pick it up while you still can.

JETMAN JACK is an 8-bit remake of the classic online game The Helicopter Game or known as Jetman on Facebook. It is a super simple, yet wildly addicting pick-up-and-play game that you can play anytime you got a free minute or two to kill.

Check it out on iTunes at: http://www.iTunes.com/apps/JetmanJack OR
The official site for demo video, screenshots, reviews, and more: http://www.JetmanJack.com

Let me know what you guys think of the game, we are always looking for suggestions to make it better. Here are a couple screenshots:

Not bad at all, I was thinking of buying this one.

Edit: I definitely would have paid a dollar for this, the best physics of any Helicopter/SF Cave I have played on the iPod, plus the retro graphics are great. Wouldn't mind more characters to play as, but I definitely recommend picking this up while its free.

Im very grateful but shocked you decided to give this one away for free. This is a great app and is easily worth $1. 2d Graphics are perfect for the feel of this game. It is occasionally hard to find a good position to place my finger so i can still see the upcoming blocks but not a major flaw. 5 star app!

It is a good game (for what it is.) I am not really a fan of this style of game because there is no way to win. You just keep flying until your character dies of a fractured skull. Kind of depressing, actually.

Thanks for all the great responses! I'm glad to know you guys would pay $1 for that, pass the word on to your friends because we're going back up in price after tonight. The more paid downloads we get the more we can update it. We are going to integrate OpenFeint in the next update which should be submitted any day now...
