About the 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!

Short but sweet, a lot of replayability, an overall joy to play. Music is awesome, graphics are amazing, and the gameplay is fantastic. Go and buy this game!

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

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.

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.

A very short and overpriced down-scrolling platformer, which i would recommend to grab only on a big sale.

Thanks to the lovely hand painted art, delightful soundtrack and the original storytelling - it felt quite charming and entertaining despite of its lack of challenge. The two provided gadgets for gliding and double-jumping, and the bombs as weapon are more than enough to offer you a enchanting adventure.

Since Freedom Fall it's so short, the only thing that would make it partially worth its full price for me would be a level editor, otherwise i'm quite pleased to have it in my game collection.
