Freefall'in vs. iskydive!

These two games are going head-to-head in the AppStore. Which game is superior. I would like to know what people think about both of these games. Oh, by the way I am new to this forum, glad to join.

I am of course jaded (being part of the team that developed Freefall'n), but I really see them as different games. I'll be honest, and there is a lot to like about iSkyDive, the developer did a great job, and the production quality seems pretty high. Freefall'n has more of an arcade quality about it. They do share a few similar concepts, but there is plenty to make them different. After all, how many racing games are there on the App Store?

That said, I would love to see someone do an honest head-to-head.

I'd say freefall'n because you can collect stars and go through hoops on the way down. It looks like in iSkyDive! you just try to land correctly.

Ok I have not bought either but I am leaning toward freefallin as it looks like you do more in that game. I might buy it later today.

I bought both when they came out and freefall'n is a way better game right now then iskydive! It's not even a contest for me right now. Iskydive doesn't have a shadow which really bothers me and the controls are really hard to get used too. Freefall'n is an easy to learn game and there is a purpose. Not to mention the music in freefall'n gets stuck in your head for hours! Freefall'n gets my vote by far!

Thanks for the kind words, BunsenTech. I like FreeFall'N too.

And btw I concur. Yes, both are technically skydiving games but each offers a very different experience.


Our first update, which should go live any day now adds a shadow, extra level, improved (tweakable) controls, and varying goals.

I think both games are easily worth .99!

iskydive definitely has potential, but with its current controls, i wouldn't recommend it. if the updates improve the controls enough, then its a good buy
