Happy Fall app review

The latest game from Noodlecake Studios, Inc., Happy Fall, may have just become one of our favorite new time killers. Not only is it a cute and colorful experience, but it’s the kind of game that beckons you back for more and more.

Our friends from Happy Jump are back! Happy Fall is the brand new sequel game to Happy Jump! Join a cute family of Jelly and Ice Cream characters on an exciting journey. Drop safely between the platforms to fall down deeper and deeper.

happy_fall_screen1After spending the weekend playing with Happy Fall, we were reminded of simple, yet addictive games like Doodle Jump or Fruit Ninja. Easy to learn and incredibly difficult to put down, there are plenty of achievements, power ups, and options to lure you back to shoot for a new high score.

I’m not going to lie, I expected this to be the kind of title I’d let my nine year old son play. But, after a few times through, I came to appreciate the challenges and unlockable content. Good luck getting me to give up my phone for him to play.

Your task is simple: fall to the bottom of the screen.  To do this you simply lean your phone or tablet from side to side and let the accelerometer do the work. Along the way you’ll have to collect coins, avoid obstacles, elude enemies, and have fun. The coins you grab are accumulated to be used in the game’s store of additional characters, power-ups, boosters, and other clever stuff.  Be careful! The screen starts moving faster as you get further along so you need to think quick and figure out whether you need to go left or right.

Once in a while you may encounter a screen splash advertisement between levels. Again, nothing here to bother you or feel intrusive.
