Whoa, out of nowhere

This looks so good. Is there any IAP? Is this free with a full game unlock?

I think it's completely free to raise awareness of malaria in hopes that you'll donate to charity.

Yeah I'm playing now. Definitely full free, and there's a screen asking you to donate $3 after each level. Art style is wonderful, controls are great, and the level design is weird and atmospheric.

Initial impression: art style/music/cause is amazing, however the controls and physics feel very floaty and slow, which can make for aggravating, frustrating gameplay at times.

This is such a great concept. Great game that is informative with an important message. The iap is reasonable and respectable. I will be donating and would love to see more developers do this. Love how dark the game is too.

Coming from someone with the username of scrotally, I couldn't help but snicker

That said, it didn't negate the awesomeness of your comment. A friend I used to work with travelled to Africa and had to take extreme measures to prevent getting malaria. She had extreme hallucinations and was even pregnant at the time, so she was limited to very specific drugs that, while safe for her baby, had incredibly terrible side effects.

All that to help. $3 to help against something most of the western world figures is "nothing" really isn't much.

Starting to get a little tired of Silhouette artwork. It's fantastic, as is the Holy Grail of silhouette, Limbo, but it's starting to become redundant.

Nothing against the game, haven't even played it... Just sayin'.

Hilarious.
