F is for Falling is a basic avoidance game, the goal is to fall as long as you can without dying. A few of my friends have described it as a 'reverse doodle jump'. Your player, a stunt man, jumps out of a plane wearing a special oxygen tank, right above an Air Show. Dodging Airplanes, Hot Air Balloons, Helicopters, Rocket men and Hang Gliders, not to mention all the birds, can you make it all the way back to earth without causing your oxygen tank to explode?

The artwork in the game was 100% hand drawn and animated by me. I'm giving away a few promo codes (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?p=9134083#post9134083) as well.

Birds – From small birds to whole flocks of birds
Hang Gliders - These guys fly back and forth and just get in your way.
Hot Air Balloons - Slow and big, watch out!
Planes & Helicopters - These are as fast as they are deadly, they will CUT YOU UP!
Rocket men - Small, fast but out of control, the gas tanks are fragile and will explode when you hit them.
Missiles - It wasn't very smart to schedule missile tests during the air show, but they did! Watch out for these, they are rigged to explode on impact.

Power Ups
Regular Clouds - slow your descent.
Thunder Clouds - speed things up.
