Default Fatty!

Hi everyone, I'm a developer of Fatty! A game about an alien that needs to consume as much junk food as possible to stay alive. It was released today. I'd very much appreciate it if you guys check it out and let me know what you think.

Thankyou!

The only endless "runner" this week. I'm probably picking it up. Gameplay looks similar to Tiny Wings right?

Lol... Okay, I'll admit... the name and the icon are terrible, but looking at the screenshots, I think I'll bite on this purchase. It looks insanely ridiculous XD

Any chance this game was developed while watching Adventure Time?

It's similar in some respects, but you touch and hold to send Fatty downwards and release when he hits the ground to get a good bounce. Whether you touch the left or right side of the affects whether he aims a little left or right.

The more food you eat, the longer your run lasts. And the more coins/food you collect and things you destroy, the higher your score will be (added to your overall run time). Simple really!

Naturally, the game also has power-ups and specials that you can collect. It's a lot of fun.

Please let us know if you have any questions, comments, or criticism. All graciously received.

To be fair to them, that's our fault. We really didn't have much of a budget for this game and built it before the iPhone 5 was even announced.

If it makes any difference, thanks for your support - it may well help lead to an update which adds proper iPhone 5 optimisation.

It would appear not. I think provided the app functions properly, it's not required to fill the screen. Anyway, things are looking good so far, so we're planning an iPhone 5 optimised update already.

Edit - here's some nice footage someone shot of the game, for anyone interested (starts around 1:19):
