Falling Fred is a 3D tunnel-based game in which you have to avoid obstacles
Actually, it's a 3D tunnel-based set in an original way. You embody a boy called Fred who's in a complicate situation: he's falling down through the elevator shaft. The purpose is to reach the end "alive" by avoiding the obstacles on the path and collecting the bonuses. Of course, the end isn't going to be a lovely end anyway. However, the further you get, the more points you rack.
The most interesting part is probably the controls. Fred is controlled by the accelerometer of your device, that's it, tilt controls. This makes the game way funnier and playable, once you've get the hang of it. In order to do it, there's a short tutorial to show you how to play.
Although we're talking about Fred, there are 6 different characters. Fred and the Crash Dummy are free, to unlock the rest you will have to pay $1 (for each). That payment system is a bit shabby. There are three difficulty modes (easy, medium, hard). Your games will be automatically recorded and you can watch the replay after them. You can share or discard it. Wha'ts more, you can share your scores and achievements via Facebook, Twitter and on online leaderboard provided by OpenFeint plaform.
Falling Fred is set in cool 3D graphics with a proper performance. It works great in the devices we've tried it. We've to say though that they're high-end devices: Samsung Galaxy S, HTC Desire HD and Galaxy Tab. No lag, no forceclosings.
Falling Fred has been developed by Dedolard, an emerging mobile games developer who's doing a great job. The proof of it is the remarkably success that's reaching the two titles they've released.
Lead Fred in his futile exercise to avoid the inevitable - becoming a human slice of minced meat. Dodge obstacles, avoid limb damage when possible but remember to keep your head attached to your shoulders (and without smashing it too much), or it’s the end of the trip for you.
Still, it's not all doom and gloom! Regardless of massive injuries, Fred still survives to tell the tale and re-enact his deeds.
