Heads Will Roll ($0.99) - YES.

Hey, we are two individuals who wanted to let you guys know about an AWESOME new game, that we happened to make. (Be assured that our making it does not in any way affect our entirely objective opinion of its awesomeness.)

It is called "Heads Will Roll."

It is a variation on the classic TI-83 calculator game Fall Down. Yes, we know there are many other Fall Down clones in the store -- but, we truly believe that ours is the best. And, the one with the most gameplay twists... We hope that HWR is to FallDown as Doodle Jump is to Papi Jump.

Roll your heads ever downward, through challenging infinite-scrolling-platform terrain, complete with SCENERY, HIGH EXPLOSIVES, and the chance to score THOUSANDS OF POINTS.

Keep every head falling... or lose it, you will.

Considering a purchase, but first, a question. Since there are multiple heads on the screen...if ONE hits the top of the screen you lose, or do you stay alive as long as there is one head rolling?

Video -- By the way, that thing in the foreground is part of a foosball table. I need to make a better quality video.

And on multiple balls -- you only lose when you lose your last ball (like pinball).

Glad you guys seem interested in the game!

After seeing your video, I am very interested in this. Do less power ups show up in the hard difficulty? Because it seems with the slow speed, added with all the bombs and slow timers that popped up, that there isn't much a difficulty. and I'm assuming the game speeds up as time goes on?

The difference in difficulty levels is in the starting scroll speed (Hard is fastest... And we made Easy really, really easy, so that hopefully you could have some fun even if you're awful at video games).

Oh -- and you get more points on Med. and Hard.

And yes, the speed increases as the game goes on (like Tetris, you must eventually lose... but you can always get higher and higher scores).

Personally I'm really enjoying the game. I love the little power ups as they they break up the pace in a way that makes the game much more enjoyable to play
