Freedom Fall is a fast-paced down-scrolling platformer. Run, jump, plummet, glide, slide, swim and bomb your way down through a towering mechanical maze and onto freedom.
It's a trip brimming with devilish traps, dark humour and fractured fairy-tale heart.
A trip featuring a brave young man, a warped prison warden, a stunning princess, a step-mother, a king, a barbarian, a dragon rider, a dragonslayer, a thief, a mad genius and a mighty magic potion … but nothing quite fits together the way you'd expect.
By the end you'll determine guilt and innocence … but until then there are lots of deathtraps to dodge, killer balloons to bounce on, jetboards to ride and even a dragon to fight!
• High-paced platforming action with a down-scrolling flavour
• A reverse Rapunzel fairly tale gone awry full of dark humour and charm
• Beautiful hand-drawn art
• Devilish traps and obstacles … with attitude
• Bolts to collect and spend on steam-punk upgrades
• Earn the right to determine your guilt or innocence
• A princess who doesn’t exactly need saving
What's New in Version 1.10
Fixed iPod Touch
Added D-Pad Controls
Changed non-dpad touch controls
Made wall-jumps and climbing out of the water easier
Made blue checkpoint loads faster
More character animations
A fun game.
It's fun, but challenging. Less because it tries to be, and more before the controls are frustrating and hard to work with. The artwork is lovely, and the characters interesting, but it's hard to appreicate the story when you die sixty times during one level when trying to get to one of the multiple endings. Since the fix allowed it to work on iPods, the jumping made itself a bit more hard to use, and confusing to try and work with when you suddenly see yourself heading toward death and mess up on where to press.
A little smaller than the PC version
This game without the d-pad wouldn't be playable at all. Angled jumps are just so needed that you can't really play on your best if you're not using it. I am almost sure the PC version has more stages, including the bonus one, in addition to HARD difficulty that's only on pc version aswell. Still, for a platformer fan, for me it was *kinda* worth it having both versions.
IOS Platforming at its finest
What a fantastic game - presentation, music, gameplay, production; everything is top notch. The graphics are charming, the concept is a great twist on the traditional side scroller, and the way the story unfolds is imaginative and interesting. I couldn't put this one down, and hope for more from this studio. This is an AppStore must-buy for any platforming fan.
