    These two games are going head-to-head in the AppStore. Which game is superior. I would like to know what people think about both of these games. Oh, by the way I am new to this forum, glad to join.

    Also can you add a poll and can a mod change the title to "Freefall'n vs iSkyDive!".
     
  3. I am of course jaded (being part of the team that developed Freefall'n), but I really see them as different games. I'll be honest, and there is a lot to like about iSkyDive, the developer did a great job, and the production quality seems pretty high. Freefall'n has more of an arcade quality about it. They do share a few similar concepts, but there is plenty to make them different. After all, how many racing games are there on the App Store?

    That said, I would love to see someone do an honest head-to-head.

    us of a
    I'd say freefall'n because you can collect stars and go through hoops on the way down. It looks like in iSkyDive! you just try to land correctly.

    Ok I have not bought either but I am leaning toward freefallin as it looks like you do more in that game. I might buy it later today.

    I bought both when they came out and freefall'n is a way better game right now then iskydive! It's not even a contest for me right now. Iskydive doesn't have a shadow which really bothers me and the controls are really hard to get used too. Freefall'n is an easy to learn game and there is a purpose. Not to mention the music in freefall'n gets stuck in your head for hours! Freefall'n gets my vote by far!

    Thanks for the kind words, BunsenTech. I like FreeFall'N too.

    And btw I concur. Yes, both are technically skydiving games but each offers a very different experience.

    Turakm,

    Our first update, which should go live any day now adds a shadow, extra level, improved (tweakable) controls, and varying goals.

    I think both games are easily worth .99!

    iskydive definitely has potential, but with its current controls, i wouldn't recommend it. if the updates improve the controls enough, then its a good buy

    Freefall'n gets my vote because, IMO, it has more gameplay elements. iSkydive is great, it just isn't my type of game.

    in that case, i would say both are extremely good games. just until the update for iskydive, freefall'n is the better buy. but once iskydive gets its update it will be extremely fun too!

    I went ahead and bought Freefall'n and will probably end up buying iSkyDive! soon as well.

    somewhere
    so:

    freefall'n is (at the moment) way better. i love the menu, and how the instructions were handled. it has more gameplay, unlocking achievements is a great add. controls are really simple and great in use. at this price it's a steal.

    iSkyDive... 3d graphics and that's all. menu and music are not the best, but controlling is the worst part. at the moment there is no fun with this title... but update is coming so who knows :)

    Weird, I bought it earlier this afternoon, directly from my iPod over wifi. I searched "freef" and it came up right away. ...I'm even also on LI! :eek:
