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!

Updated: Achievements are now working as I am told.

Can't really recommend this game even at it's discounted price.

Don't get me wrong it's a relatively fun game. But it's way too short (beat it in roughly an hour) some sections of the game the frame rate drops and is horribly annoying.

Like I said, it's not a bad game at all, but to me it's overpriced for how short the overall game is.

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

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.
