Parachute Panic coming to Xbox LIVE on Windows Phone this week

The wildly popular iPhone game (yes, we're taking them all, thank you) Parachute Panic by FDG (in conjunction with MGS) is coming to our Windows Phones this week.

The game is a classic "parchute game" where you try to land your hapless skydiver on a moving ship. In the meantime, aliens, birds and even a shark all try to complicate your progress. Having played the game on my iPad, I can say it's actually quite a lot of fun: addictive and yet frustrating too.

This unique casual game requires you to successfully land a host of parachutists into passing boats. Beware of imminent dangers such as helicopter blades, U.F.O´s, sharks and thunder clouds. The game offers beautiful hand drawn graphics, smooth animations, catchy acapella music and awesome sound effects. In addition to that we created funny animations for any failed enemy encounter :D We had a lot of fun creating this game and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

No word on pricing but this should be a pretty big hit, we think. [Update: price is $2.99, available worldwide]

  • THis is one fun game, I would definitely pay for it again. After playing it a year back I was humming those tunes for like a week, its very catchy. And yes we will take all the games, MUAH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA.
  • Would be nice if rather than try their hardest to copy the iphone and all its applications Microsoft actually worked on fixing WP7's glaring issues, like the constant MP crash. Maybe if enough people were unable to buy the game they would get off their butts and do something.
  • Yea man the marketplace scrolling lag, the random freezing and crashing sucks.....
  • Here's to hoping the fix it with the FIRST update then, to a 3 month old Operating system.
