Developer Screen Tear has launched their first iOS game, a reaction-based platformer called Springy. Players control a rolling pig that must jump over and through obstacles because if he hits them, he dies. But he just can’t stop rolling, so it’s the player’s job to tap in the screen to make him jump.

However, the real reason to check out this game? The first player who beats it flawlessly wins $250. The game is short, with only 6 levels (with three sections each), but is very difficult to complete without dying at all, due to the quick reactions needed to jump through the devious level sections. The best score so far is 212 attempts, so getting to zero might take a long time. Just remember, the US minimum wage is $7.25/hour, so spending more than 34 hours and 29 minutes trying to win the prize is an inefficient use of time. Good luck.
