There are plenty of side-scrolling iOS games in the App Store, but down-scrollers are less common. One new application to offer iDevice owners an exciting, “fast-paced down-scrolling platformer” is Freedom Fall, a fun, universal app that can be downloaded for just $1.99.

Developer Stirfire Studios explains:

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!

Along with its adrenalin-inducing high-speed gameplay, additional features of Freedom Fall include:

  • 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

As mentioned, Freedom Fall can be downloaded in the App Store for $1.99, and is optimized for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
