TOFTT review

Right just loaded it up, auto rotates (good !), nice chiptune on the menu, 3 levels it seems (normal/sunset/nightmare)

On screen buttons work well (left/right/jump), you can jump 4 times in a row then you fall back down to earth. Theres gusts of wind you can jump on so you can do longer jumps.

So only had a quick go, i love old retro 8/16 bit games, the chiptune is superb, nice retro graphics, controls work well. Looking forward to playing this much more later, nice 69p game

Think it does need some instructions ! Looks like once you get all the seed on an 'isle' a shot of wind appears so you can use that to fly to the next isle.

But either way really like it.

Flapformer? That is brilliant. The 45 degree (diagonal lines run everywhere) emphasis sounds unique too. I should download this when I can get to wifi; thanks to psj3809's impressions.

So can i check then. Is the idea to get the seed on every isle (which then starts the wind moving) so you can then go to the next isle and do the same ?

Yeap! Hmm, perhaps I should add an in-game hint to make this more clear.
