Jump Birdy Jump!

EDIT: the game is now on the App Store, please check my new TA thread.

Hello everyone,

I'm extremely excited to present you with Jump Birdy Jump, my latest game coming extremely soon to the app store. If you want a chance to win a promo code, please register here: WIN A PROMOCODE

A little bird wants to join his better half but the cruel world won't let him. Collect as many stars as you can while jumping between wires and avoiding pitfalls.

Jump Birdy Jump is a fun little game hand-crafted by a guy in his garage after 19 weeks of eating nothing but ramen.

“I hope players will enjoy Jump Birdy Jump as much as I enjoyed developing it. I’m already working hard on new levels and new features for future updates. As a developer, I’m very excited about the possibility to let users create their own content for the game. I would love to release my tools so everyone could create their own levels for Jump Birdy Jump. That would be truly awesome.” - Jean-Claude Cottier, Jump Birdy Jump’s creator.

*** Highlights ***

- 60 challenging levels (more coming soon).
- Original characters (I mean, have you ever seen a physics-based game on iOS starring birds?).
- Simple game mechanism.
- 0% cats.
- Secret stuff you'll never find. Or maybe you will. We'll see.
- Adorable artwork.
- 100% fun for everyone.

Play the top-rated game in the Cottier household NOW!

*** Quotes from Jean-Claude’s family ***

“This is the best game I’ve ever played on iPhone. Wait, what's an eye-phone?” - His Mum. (In all fairness, Jump Birdy Jump is also the only game she's ever played on iPhone).

“This is completely stupid! They are birds, why can’t they just fly?” - His Dad.

“Yes, your game is nice Jean-Claude… Can you set the table? It’s time for lunch.” - Rachel, his Wife.

“We luv your game, daddy.” – Julien, Marine and Anas, his kids. (Paid with candies)

Very nice. How varied are the obstacles and mechanisms in the levels?

I find it pretty varied (obviously) and I've spent a lot of time designing the levels so it brings something new in a steady stream (either new object or new design in the levels). I'm already half way through a new chapter for the first update. my ambition is to bring a new game play element with any new chapter (well at least at the beginning). Also, if you haven't read the itunes description (you should, go on and read it ) I would LOVE to release my tools (on computer PC & MAC) to let people create their own level. That should bring a lot of creativity in the levels as I'm sure some of the player will come up with some very cool levels. I've got really long plans for the game but it is pointless to tell them now . First, I need my initial release to be a success, so I can carry on working on this great little game.

Looks good, kind of a mix between Doodle Jump and Parachute Ninja/Spoing, but maybe a name change before the game goes out? Names like Bumpy Road stick, but this one is a little generic. Maybe something like...... Up and Away? Or Birdy Bounce?

Upcoming Games: CJS2, Racing Apex, High Strangeness, Dino Run, Super Feed Me, Mimeo and the Kleptopus King, Loot, Run Run Dash, Pogo Rampage, Burrito Bison, Star Saver, Pocket Cars, Rock Rider, THEM, Prince of Europa, Epic Dive, One Tap Hero

Hey!!! I like the name
It kind of remind me this scene from the movie rainman: Run Forest Run

Initially, I wanted to call it Little Wings, but a great game with a fat bird in it just get released with almost the same name...

Oh, Little Wings would have been great! It's odd how things turn out the way they do.

I don't know why but I stumbled upon this game almost everywhere. And I still enjoy stumbling upon it - which is a good thing I guess. Nice job !
