I was poking around the iTunes AppStore this week and took a $.99 chance on a recently launched game from FDG Entertainment
called Parachute Panic.
This fun casual game requires you to successfully land a host of parachutists into passing boats while trying to avoid obstacles such as helicopters, U.F.O´s, sharks and thunder clouds.
The game play is reminiscent of the vintage Nintendo Game & Watch handheld parachute
game that I used to love to play back in the early 80's.
The game has very cool hand drawn graphics, smooth animations, catchy music and awesome sound effects. The game has been getting good reviews in the App Store and I have to agree - it is very well done and lots of fun.

The only slightly negative comment I will make is that this game is not easy. It takes a little while to get used to the controls and even after mastering the techniques, the action picks up fast and furious. My 7 year old lost interest pretty quickly as it was too hard, but personally, I love the game, and for a buck it's well worth it. Click here
