F is for Falling - in review

Hi Everyone,

My next game - F is for Falling, was submitted today. It's a simple avoidance game, the goal is to fall as long as you can without dying. Your player, a stunt man, jumps out of a plane wearing a special oxygen tank, right above an airshow. Dodging Airplanes, Hot Air Balloons, Helicopters, Rocketmen and Hang Gliders, not to mention all the birds, can you make it all the way back to earth without causing your oxygen tank to explode?

There are a several obstacles you must evade on your way down:

Birds From small birds to whole flocks of birds
Hang Gliders - These guys fly back and forth and just get in your way.
Hot Air Balloons - Slow and big, watch out!
Planes & Helicopters - These are as fast as they are deadly, they will CUT YOU UP!
Rocketmen - Small, fast but out of control, the gas tanks are fragile and will explode when you hit them.
Missles - It wasn't very smart to schedule missle tests during the air show, but they did! Watch out for these, they are rigged to explode on impact.
There are two also types of clouds you can use to your advantage, regular clouds and thunder clouds:

Flying through a regular cloud will slow your descent.
Thunder clounds will speed things up.

I've got a few screenshots below, as well as a youtube preview video:

It's in review right now, so it should be released this week:

thank you!

I made the entire game in a week, after I had the basic gameplay idea down.

Thanks mattll

I'm wrapped up in my own games right now, supporting the 3 I've made and workng on a few new ideas as well, so I don't have room for anything new right now. You should try making it yourself! It's very rewarding.
