Lumiappaday #142: Swipy Man demoed on the Nokia Lumia 800

| April 5, 2012 | Reply

Swipy man is a purposely simplistic looking stickman who wants to swing and swipe across the screen to reach the platform(s) on the opposite site. This requires some timing as to when to let go of the rope Swipy man is swinging on. The accelerometer also assists (to a degree you can set) which can nudge his fall one way or another. The platforms get more difficult to land on with each successive game. There are four different modes, two set on earth (I guess) and the other two in space.

#142) Swipy Man 

Price: Free



Developer Blurb:

Now in version 2, Swipy Man Plus has a new look, new levels, and high scores worldwide!


How to play:

To get Swipy Man started swinging, just tap the screen. When he gets to the right part of his swing, tap the screen again to have him let go. While he’s in the air, tilt the phone to affect where he lands. When he lands on the platform, it will transport him back to the start to do the next stage.
