“I personally can’t even think of another game to compare this to, and that fact had me intrigued throughout the quick comic book style introduction."

“The best feature of the game is the virtual skydiving as well as the attention to level design. I took High Flyer Death Defyer’s for a spin and was surprised at the level of entertainment it provided. Indie developers such as Game Mechanic Studios are a true source of innovation.”

I really like its scope, it is an iOS game that's really trying to do something different, something really fun, and look really good doing it”.

“The music’s quite good: it wouldn’t be out of place in an intense scene in an action movie, and combines nicely with sound effects such as air whooshing by”.

iBirdy 4 Stars

“The game takes place in the post-apocalyptic world where the whole human population lives in the cities that are high in the sky, and there is a group of skydiving explorers that search for new cities and treasures.”

“I love the concept of this game."


Rating: Bronze Award

“The constant free fall mechanic is entertaining, with your hero spinning downward and the cloudy skies blurring past you. As it is, High Flyer Death Defyer looks good, plays well, and brings originality to the arcade genre.
