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.
