The original version (1.0) of this game was created in under 48 hours, using nothing more than an Asus Transformer tablet.

Your friends are stuck on a burning platform. Tilt your device around to keep them from falling off. Pick up items to stop the burning temporarily, rebuild the platform, or have one of your friends make a daring escape. For tablets and for phones both!

This game was my entry into the Ludum Dare #23. My entry page is here:

Tools used:
AIDE - A Java IDE for compiling Android apps.
Pixelesque - A paint style app for Android.
Plasma Sound - A theremin app.
SPC - A beatbox app.
TapeMachine - A post process sound editor.

The dev log for this game (and also my previous Ludum Dare entry) can be found here.


Recently changed in this version

Many apologies for the rapid updates, but hopefully they'll be worth your while.

v1.7 - Should finally resolve the bug related to lines never disappearing on slower devices

Many improvements made based on user feedback:

- Lines persist longer onscreen
- Tilt controls more responsive
- New powerup added
- "Gravity" indicator in the top right
- Updated instruction text and game over text

All of the recent updates were various and sundry device-specific bug fixes.
