GTProductions, creators of the recently released 24 hour TouchArcade forum powered code fest, Super Ramen BROTHers is giving away their first iPhone game away for free today. Spring Fling [App Store] is a jumping game with a similar play style to Doodle Jump, but with the physics of a bouncing spring.

From our review:

GTProduction's Spring Fling is a jump-up-the-platform-wall game where you take on the role of a spring. Being a spring, it's not just a matter of tap to jump straight upward -- you can compress the string and set the angle of your jump by way of a tap and drag mechanic. And the integrated PhysX engine makes the experience rather convincing. Choose an angle to shallow or severe and it's a platform miss with a plummet to your end.

Each jump uses up a supply of Power that doesn't get recharged until the next checkpoint. So, the game is a more deliberate physics/power management game than the fast paced action of other platform jumping titles.

Along the way rockets, balloons, parachutes, and pogo sticks help you scale the wall. The game includes five different worlds, some static and some downward scrolling. And achievements, online leaderboards, and Facebook / Twitter integration provide incentive to reach the highest height.

Spring Fling is free for a limited time, so if you're as much of a fan of these endless jumping games as we are, don't waste any time downloading this one.

    I find Super Ramen Brothers to be way more fun than this game.

    I like it—any jump-up game where you’re actually DOING something (aiming and stretching the spring in this case) instead of just steering upward is more fun to me.

    To clarify the description: your power meter isn’t depleted by jumping (which is what I first expected) as near as I can tell. It just decreases like a countdown, then loads back up at “pit stop” checkpoints. (Where little springs actually hop out to service you.) So you can jump all you want, but you have to hurry. In addition, the bottom of the screen is scrolling up, so you have to jump to keep away from that limit.

      There are two types of levels, one is the one you describe and in the other one your power decreases with every jump.

    That little spring guy looks an awful lot like Clippy.

    "Hey! It looks like you're writing an iPhone app!"

    I don't think that means they encourage us to download it since they consider the time it takes us to download it wasted.

    Ok, I'm feeling a bit goofy with this question, but here goes: what do I have to do to get my level scores to register on Agon? My overall score shows up, and on some levels I've even scored in like the top 50% comparing with Agons listings. I have unlocked the last level too. Oh, and I am unsure of what geek mode affects too, but I've tried with it on and off to no avail on my scores showing. Any help would be appreciated. :)
