I Won’t Fall review (iPod/iPhone)

November 16, 2011

“Because falling’s not the problem
When I’m falling I’m in peace
It’s only when I hit the ground
It causes all the grief”

10 word description: Mother’s quest across beautiful, treacherous sky-world: find lost babies.

Sure that's easy, but the challenge comes from timing those jumps ... and not falling!

10 word review: Polished and enjoyable horizontal Frogger style game. Becomes fiendishly challenging.

You won't be surprised to hear that it all starts off fairly easily

You will like this if you enjoy: Frogger type games (albeit with simplified one-touch controls and continually evolving challenges).

Moving platforms and deadly spiked objects are the first problems that you encounter

The good news: Great evolution of simple Frogger concept. Smooth, with responsive one-touch control method. Nice graphics. Good learning curve and progressive difficulty.

The bad news: No obvious issues. I’d cite the omission of endless mode as a missed opportunity, but it’s already been announced as coming in an update.

You can probably figure out exactly what is going on here

Arcadelife verdict: There’s a sad back-story about a mother searching for her lost children, with suitably emotional and well drawn images when you succeed or fail. None of that is necessary, of course, but it adds to the overall feel of polish and care that has gone into the game. This is one of the more pleasant and fun games that I’ve seen for a while; enjoyable and definitely challenging.

Really big, long spiky things - the bane of videogame protagonists since the dawn of time
