Parachute Panic's Mango ringtone feature [Video]

The other day we reported on Parachute Panic, the fun little skill game, receiving a Mango bump. The game now supports fast app resume and that 60FPS increase, which really smooths out the game's hand-drawn and charming graphics.

One bonus feature that we missed was the unique ringtone that FDG Entertainment created for Windows Phone users. To refresh, one new feature of Mango is the ability for developers to make apps that pull down and allow you to save music as a ringtone--anyone can do this. FDG took their awesome and catchy barbershop-style music and made one right in the game.

We show it how it works and how it sounds (which is brilliant and hilarious). Our hats off to FDG for adding this little bonus.

Thanks to everyone who sent this in!

  • Brilliant! Can't wait for the Mango update to arrive!
  • It's a great ringtone, I'm going to use it for a while.
  • When can we expect the Mango update? I really want that ringtone.
  • Oh Em Gee! I wish Popcap would do this for Plants v. Zombies - there are quite a few little 'ditties' that are in that game that I would love to use as a ringtone.
  • Amen to that. PvZ has some of the most brilliant and catchy music around. Here's hoping...
  • The soundtrack is a great buy for $3 from Laura Shigihara's site.
  • Nice !
  • Awesome!
  • I received today my Mango update (LG-E900, TRE Italy), I already got the latest version of Parachute Panic but there's no free ringtone. Anyone knows why? UPDATE: sorry my bad, my PP app was not up to date, I was sure it was.
