Parachute Panic floats onto the iPhone
Freefall fun for all the family
A couple of weeks ago we were chatting with German developer FDG Entertainment about its new casual title for the iPhone, Parachute Panic, and it seems even the game's creator was caught a bit off guard by its sudden arrival on the App Store.
Parachute Panic went live over the weekend, and it's already doing brisk business - landing itself at number 61 in the Top Paid Apps list, which is a pretty impressive feat within two days.
"Some at FDG have been sceptical about the gameplay, but in the end it turned out to be so much fun. Everyone at FDG is really excited about the final quality and fun factor of the game," project leader Thomas Kern told us.
The game involves catching stick figures as they leap, with gay abandon, from aircraft without a clue how to open their own parachutes. Tapping them helps them coast to relative safety, while you help the wind to blow them in the right direction to avoid the mincemeating blades of helicopters or from being abducted by aliens.Parachute Panic is currently on special offer at just 59p, so don't wait too long to make the leap.
