Hands-on with FallMan, the 'silly little trampoline-jumping sports game'

By , on July 2, 2014

FallMan is about as indie as it gets. Juho Glad is its creator: a one-man-band indie dev creating the art, designing the gameplay, implementing the sound, handling the promotion... everything. It's his first game, but you wouldn't be able to tell.

He describes FallMan as “Tony Hawks meets Flappy Bird”, and though the game is still a fair way out from being finished, the core elements are certainly in place to justify that bold claim.

You have to keep a moustachioed gent bouncing on a trampoline, all the while performing death-defying tricks in the air for points. Make one mistake, it's game over, your score appears, and the protagonist rag dolls in slow motion. It's simple but addictive stuff.

Even in its unfinished state, I really liked it, and I reckon FallMan might just be the next iOS viral hit when it's released. So hit play on the video below, and remember where you heard about it first...
