Skybound, a Tumbleweed Interactive game- get free lite version today!


Hi! I'm Havchr a co-founder and coder at Tumbleweed Interactive, a small five man independent games company from Norway.

We released a game called Skybound in late December. Feedback has been positive from users, but not that many people know about its existence yet.

We just got featured on tuaw. Makes me very happy and proud, check it out here


So to rectify that we have just released a lite version so that more people can play our game.

Update, review code giveaway:
Claim your review code today, we have some to give out.
PM me to get a review code, I will change the thread title when we've run out. Sorry, we have run out of codes. Thanks all for the interest in our game. Those who didn't get one, we urge you to try out the lite version for a free spin.

In short, the game is this;
The objective is to bounce a ball upwards using a line of clouds that appear at your fingertips. Along the way you will encounter both obstacles and powerups, which make your journey all the more interesting.

Online highscores adds value to competitive players






a boss mode is included

We hope you like our game, and we're really excited to hear what you think!

Also, if you beat my score on normal mode, I will have to play obsessively until I can reclaim my fame.

This is a fantastic game, have enjoyed it for awhile now.

I hope the lite version does the developer well, this game deserves more recognition.

I like the lite version but I feel like the full version is a bit too expensive. I just got Virtual Villagers over this.

Thanks for the heads up. I have been wondering how could I miss the lite version when I checked AppShopper daily.

Lite version is sweet, it's hard to drop 2.99 on the regular version, ah I'm up in the air

To those that like the lite version, but feel the proper version is too expensive, what would impulse buy price be?

We're new to this whole price setting thing. It's hard.

We hope to earn enough to be able to make new games for the iPhone. Since we do not have any investor money, we have to rely on app sales to be able to make it. Fingers crossed

While I love this game, I personally feel $1.99 would be more of a fair price, with $0.99 being your sale price whenever you hold one.

You have sales figures though, the game was $0.99 for quite awhile. If the $2.99 increase kills your sales, then you know what you should do. If your sales are fine, then stay where you are. ^ ^

I wish you guys the best, I really dig your art style.
