819173From the creators of Puzzle Prism, Mr.AahH!! [App Store] is yet another game for the iPhone that is so simple it can be described in a single sentence, yet so much fun that it can keep you playing for hours. You swing on a rope from platform to platform touching the screen to let go and tilting to refine your fall. That's all there is to it.

Who is Mr.AahH!!!? Where is he going? Who is he running from? Where is he getting this endless supply of rope? None of these questions have answers, and it doesn't matter because the simple gameplay slowly begins to ramp up with different sized platforms, wind, and even modifications to the gravity that keep you playing even longer. Just when you start landing in the center of every platform for extra points, the game throws you a curve ball and you will need to adjust to still landing on the platforms with a strong headwind and maybe even low gravity.

The simple art style of the game is wrapped in energetic chiptune music along with different graphical and sound effects depending on how close to the center of the platform you land. After you miss a platform three times it's game over and your score is submitted to an online leaderboard. It's at this point that you realized that you barely cracked the top 500 and you could totally do better than that if you just play one more time...

Here is a video by the developer that shows all the features of the game:

In my opinion, Mr.AahH!! ranks right up there with the simple classics of the App Store like Doodle Jump, Flight Control, etc. The deliciously simple gameplay has kept me coming back for more, but you don't have to take my word for it, there's a lite available that will let you swing through a small series of platforms. If nothing else, give Mr.AahH!! Lite [App Store] a try.

    looks good...though these "rope swinging" games (this, Rope 'n Fly, MonkeySwing, etc.) just remind me how kick ass a Spider-Man game would be.

    I liked the free version, but I can't tell what the full version adds. Is there a limit on how far you can get in the free version that I just couldn't reach in my limited playtime? Or are there some additional features?

    Funny how that little pleasure center pathway in my brain has been hewn out to the rewards of music and sound effects like this! I'm reminded of many, many, MANY... hours of classic Konami and Capcom NES titles (Jackal, Track & Field 2, Bionic Commando, Mega Man... etc.) that were part of shoveling that highway in my neural fibers. Immediate appeal with the catchy music... and big ups for the nostalgia factor!

    Just to let you know, the lite version is the same, except you only have one life, rather than three lives in the full version.

    This game is so much like Tower Bloxx, but is better because of the swinging mechanism, accelerometer control, wind/gravity changes, and, of course, the retro graphics, chiptune music, and the ultra-cool font from Puzzle Prism.

    Has anybody made a font set for that yet?

    • Joker13z

      Actually guys, the lite version ends at platform E-5. This was stated in the forums. I've played the full version and I got as far as Q-4 so I don't even know if it does end. I believe the dev should put this in the lite app description.

    • mrbass

      I did get a promo for this but couldn't fall in love with it. I think the opposite tower bloxx is more up my alley and most people who dismiss it (and rightly so) only played the demo. The demo doesn't let you build yellow towers and the swaying is quite dramatic and much more challenging than the demo gives you a taste of. I think he did a decent job of Puzzle Prism but that's a very niche game.

    Definitely thinking about buying it. The Lite version is damn fun already. Being able to adjust your trajectory by tilt is pretty nifty. At first I played without it before I remembered that you could do that. It's quite a bit easier to hit the target that way, plus it can really save your ass.

    Plus, this article also introduced me to Puzzle Prism which I might snap up at the same time. This is definitely a developer to watch.

    I've been the first many times, but JDC and TSUIT1 are the best most consistant players...it goes to Z5 by the way, and the only way to score a decent game is to get at least 15 in a row...if the big boyz(or girls) aren't playing...it is pretty easy to get #1 in the nation

    p.s. I meant 15 consecutive "justs" (or bullseyes) in a row...and you need to get to level z...a good score is at least above 300,000...also LONGE is a good player...once in ashile cheaters and hacks attack the game...and post bogus gazillion type scores...
