About This Game

Freedom Fall is a diabolical down-scrolling platformer set in a prison tower so tall it touches the clouds. Presented with hand painted art, its old school vibe mixes with fast-paced free falling action and a story with both dark wit and heart. With the promise of freedom for those who escape, find your way through the traps and mechanical monstrosities set up by a twisted princess who you'll wish was in another castle. As your bid for freedom continues you start to see that things aren't quite as they seem. In the end you'll determine who is guilty and who is innocent … but until then there are lots of deathtraps to avoid, killer balloons to bounce off, jetboards to ride and even a dragon to fight!

Creatively funny, simple to grasp with a good replay value, great difficulty balance, this little game has a lot to offer. If you enjoy good platforming with a linear learning curve (i.e. if you're not only into punitive games), this one is for you.

Original, drôle et bien équilibré, ce petit jeu vous offrira plusieurs heures de plaisir. Si vous aimez les jeux de plateforme avec du challenge sans être punitifs, ajoutez-le à votre bibliothèque dès maintenant.

One of best platform games I ever played. I would rate it with score 10 (5 stars). Physics is very quality made and whole game has good and sweet story and enjoyable levels. I really recommend it to all platform fans, because this game has zero bugs and it's kinda challenging for achievements. If you want get all achievements you would need replay game 4-5 times, but trust me, in this sweet game that is not big deal. Anyway, this game has all recommendations from me...

Great take on the classical platformer tropes and awesome writing. The princess who perfectly fits into the uncanny valley between "Insane" and "A total nutjob" won my heart.

Great and funny game, with an original narration. Short, but has a nice replay-value. It offers challenge without being really difficult.

Un excellent jeu avec une narration originale et vraiment amusante. le jeu est court mais propose une bonne rejouabilité, et il a un gameplay précis permettant des niveaux qui mettent du challenge sans que ce soit jamais très difficile. Je le recommande vraiment !

Nice platformer. A bit short, but it has replayability if you want to challenge the times and get all achievements.
I'm not overly bothered with that so for me it was a nice way to pass some time.

It's not overly hard or frustrating, quite forgiving and the good part is: you actually get the choice to do a harder route if you want to. Excellent for when you start to get frustrated so you can just take the easier route.

The story is rather funny with a crazy but fun princess that will torment you with her writings and castle design.

Give it a go when you feel like a platformer that is not designed to just punish you all the time, but still offers some challenges.

Went pretty much blind on this game based on the screenshots which I liked because of the art style. I thought it would be hard like SMB but am somewhat pleased that it isn't for the sake of my blood pressure. Even managed to 100% it within 5 hours which is pretty good seeing my previous expectation. ..though to be fair, there's only two achievements that can be considered somewhat hard.. one less if you take a different approach than I did.

There are some challenging parts in certain levels, especially if you're playing on Hard mode with no equipment but other than that, it's really not that difficult. In that regard, it's pretty lighthearted which does fit the game. If you take the time to actually look for and read the writings on the wall instead of speedrunning right from the bat, you'll find a charming and in my opinion adorably cute story. But I'm a sucker for crazy killer Princesses so..

In general it's a short game but if you're into score attacks, speedrunning and competing on leaderboards you'll find plenty of replayability to make it worth the price.

After having this game on my steam wishlist for about 6 months, I got it as part of a bundle for $1. Let me say that I kind of wish I had bought it months ago for full price- because this game is fantastic. Yes, the game is pretty damn short- let's just get that out of the way. For how short it is, I'm not sure about the $10 price tag. But if $10 isn't going to bankrupt you, and you love a good platformer- definitely do yourself a favor and buy this.

The graphics are vibrant, animations are good. The music is great. The literal 'writing on the wall' that you see as you descend through the levels is amusing and occasionally downright hilarious.

And despite how short the game is (a couple hours at most), there is some great replay value here due to collectibles, leaderboards, etc. The game really feels like it belongs in the tier just below the greats of platformers. You have your Mario/DK Country/Rayman Legends/Super Meat Boy tier, and right below it is Freedom Fall. It really is that good, in my opinion. It's just a shame it isn't longer.

Got it in a bundle with zero expectations, actually completed the game! Tight controls, above average platforming and very, very charming writing. (Yes, the writing in a platformer is actually a selling point, weird I know but...) Great short game that is easily recommendable on sale. Has achievements and modes for hardcore players / extended playability.

It's not precisely a difficult game, though frustrating at time, but it is always fun to play! It's a pretty short play, with beautiful graphics and a fun storyline. It's different from other games in the same genre.

Indie down-scrolling platformer with a delightfully deviant sense of humor. Worth it just for the princess' dark wit.

The game is fairly short and suits casual players (normal difficulty) and more experienced gamers (hard mode) especially if you try for the Freerunner achievement without buying the glider, wings or hoverboard.

There is some replayability with more than one ending, a Par for each level in number of deaths, time taken, and currency collected, and the Steam achievements. It's also fun to play through it again just to re-read the princess' messages; you might find a couple that you overlooked the first time.

You should expect to die a lot at first, but this is part of the fun. "Make them like this" will be your motto.

9/10

This game's a riot. It was one of those games in my library from all the games I've collected and thought to myself, "I'll play this when I'm exhausted and don't need to concentrate." Buuuut it ended up taking my full attention. It's definitely tough, but has this flow about it that just kept me playing. The craftable powerups are actually good—one of which, the wings, I think would make speedrunning very interesting. The soundtrack, rock and hip hop influenced, is really good. The graphics are ♥♥♥♥ing beautiful.

It did only take 2 hours to beat the game on Hard including the extra level, but with the intention of 100%ing it, I'd definitely say it has high replay value.

So, why the 9/10? Hitboxes are really inconsistent. Fire seems to have a hitbox far extending outside its graphic. Marsh (your little, silly faller) has extended feet hitboxes. You get used to it after a while, but I mean, it shouldn't be a problem to begin with. See second edit.

Anyway, 10.99 CAD is a good enough price. You may or may not get 10 hours out of it, which just depends on how you play games. Are you going to perfect it? Yeah, you'll get those hours. Are you going to play through it once and be done with it? Nah, you definitely won't get those hours.

Either way, it's a fantastic game and a great port (from mobile, if that wasn't clear from the gameplay).

EDIT: Figured I'd elaborate on what makes it a good port:
+ No low FPS cap
+ Custom keyboard controls
+ Fluid graphics which don't degrade at higher resolutions

EDIT 2: So I went back and perfected the game. I think there are 3 secret achievements or something? There's a guide in the community hub if you're looking to complete it. So, the 4 other runs I did after my original run made me realize the hitbox issue is strictly for fire. There's just so much huge-hitbox fire in the final levels. And confirming: 9 hours for perfecting the game? 10$? Yeah, definitely worth it.

If you like platformers, fall into this one. Okay, I promise, first and last pun. This is a great game well worth the price and time. It's difficult, but not overly so. The style is beautiful and the story is unique and funny.

I didn´t expect much going into this game. Another platformer in my library, but i wanted to give this game at least fair chance to show up.

And oh boy, it delivers.

I really get hooked from first moment. Not by gameplay mechanics, cute visuals, or perfectly fitted music.
Writings on the walls really sucked me in. I wanted to know more about what is going on, who is this spoiled bats**t crazy little princess, what my convicted felon character did and how to to get out.
It was pleasant, fairly challenging also really hard journey at some stages (my lack of patience really didn't help tho).

I can't recommend this more. If you want to spend couple hours tilting and having fun, Freedom Fall will do the service.

8.5/10

A very charming platforming game with traps laid out for you as you fall down the tower to reach the goal
You play as a boy who is jailed on top of a tower, why you are falling and who laid the traps of the tower for you? The answer you shall find as you thwart the perilous tower.

+charming story
+like the art, a bit flash style
+the price is reasonable
+like the way you can pick choices of hard or easy depending on where you want to fall
+challenge the leaderboards
+the music is nice

+-its a casual game, so once you beat it

-Could expand on the powerups and concept as you fall maybe adding more gameplay and powerups for the next game
was only 3 in the game really.
-Hoping a 3d version in the future and continuation of the story
-lacks a real multiplayer competitive mode of any sort.
-Short game

Here is another game i found myself enjoying and yet got to the end and thought "IS THAT IT".
The game itself is great,good graphics (cartoon anyone),good music and addictive gameplay and then when you realise all this its over.
Its a great free running game (you start at the top of a tower imprisoned and must get to the bottom) and you also gain new gear as you play (esential on some later levels-but there is an acheivement you can get for not getting any gear so it must be possible to get to the bottom without using any).
A lot of levels are just making your way down and are quite easy and then comes some of the levels where you actually have to think about how to progress (avoid this trap and avoid that gust of wind) but its not really that hard or that challenging (will say though that some acheivements wont be easy to get).
So why reccomend it then,well its still a great game and worth your time but i would pick it up in a sale or wait for it to be bundled (will happen at some point),as its over far to quick and i did feel a little short changed.

Really fun and entertaining. The writing on the walls is very humerous and will give you a laugh. Not to mention the trickery it gives... sometimes it says this ways easy but really you just fall and die... it's pretty hilarious definitely recommend!

Freedom Fall is a nice little platformer. It has some issues though. For me the length of the game was a little disappointing. You beat the campaign in max. 2 hours. After that there are some additional levels to play, but overall the content is fairly limited. I would expect just a little more. Especially if you consider the difficulty, which is definitely too low. It was not enough of a challenge, in my opinion. Even, if you always choose the hard route (there are many parts of the levels where you can choose between an easy and a hard section), you won't have any trouble completing the game. One more thing: there is not enough variety in the platforming. Gunman Clive's campaign can be completed in half the time, but has so much more to offer (gravity flipping, rocket rides...).

On the pro side there is solid platforming (including items for double-jumping and gliding, and switching between them), nice story-telling (every few meters you can read surprisingly funny messages, the princess left there), and a nice twist to the typical platformer story cliche (you search for a princess, yes. But she is an evil, insane sadist). I really enjoyed the game, despite all the issues mentioned above.

Overall Freedom Fall gets a thumbs up, but it could have been much better. I wouldn't recommend it for full price. The current 35% discount is not bad, but maybe it's better to grab a bundle key of the game.
