Parachute sees the player taking control of Paraman, a somewhat crazy looking Parachutist, as he attempts to race his way through 40 fun packed levels, dodging platforms, objects and enemies to safely reach the landing pad.
Dominic Birch, Lead Software Developer and co-designer of Parachute, said“The primary focus during development of Parachute was to ensure that players are constantly having fun. We achieved this through a simple tilt control mechanism and by hand crafting each level to provide challenging, addictive game play. In order to achieve high scores, players must complete levels as fast as possible but at the same time carefully control their speed to avoid dying.”
“Another of our goals was to provide variety so that players always have something new to discover, hence the 40 levels are split equally over 5 uniquely themed areas, each with their own set of obstacles to avoid. From icy Mountains with freezing platforms, falling icicles and snowball lobbing yetis, through to the far reaches of Space with UFOs, rockets and alien artifacts.”
“Players are gently eased into the action, the first few levels contain basic static platforms, with more challenging obstacles such as falling objects, moving platforms, killer creatures and a host of mysterious projectile throwing yetis introduced as the game progresses.”
