Falling Fox 1.2 (by FlipBox Games) [Universal]

Hi guys,

I'm proud to announce my game called Falling Fox, a joint effort between me and my wife. It took us about 3 months to make this game, from learning how to code to making the graphics. We hope you will try it out and do give us a rating. Any feedback is very much appreciated as well. Thank you!

Update: Version 1.2 is now live on the AppStore. This version has 2 new stages, 1 new skill called Spirit Blade, new powerups and costumes. Other updates include cosmetic changes and bug fixes.

Don't jump the gun too early Gems are just special items to unlock a hidden char ... and you can't buy them.

I only have one iAP and that is to buy coins for cosmetic stuff. The hidden character and special skill (upcoming 1.1) must be unlocked through gameplay and gameplay only.

Hope this clear things up

Edit: You just made me realise something ... gems are usually linked to 'currency', to which Im assuming you are thinking of the same thing. Perhaps I should consider changing it to something else.

Sorry but you're praising Toad Rider (which is a great game) and it has also two currencies, revives and it's paid! I think a free game is still worth a try. No offense Frost

If they dont share nothing in common with what we know as "gems" (freemium currency) you should definitely change it. Real gamers see gems and run away. Ok Im giving it a go now, thanks for the explanation

Falling Fox is well done but the tilting in landscape mode is not my cup of tea.
Im starting to feel that way. Toad Rider has really amazing gameplay but Im starting to realize its too fremium for me. The initial mist is falling for me in that one I guess.

@dev falling Fox is a nice game, you've done a great job with the graphics and controls. But imo it's a bit too grindy

Thanks for the feedback. I would like to hear more about the grindy part. Do you mean it's taking too long (too much coins) to unlock items?

Just a heads up, there's already a Falling Fox thread here: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showth...ht=Falling+Fox

Hopefully a mod can merge them. This game looks fun though, downloading now and I'll be sure to leave impressions later. Skatt's Fishing looks like it might be cool also!
