Alien Falls is a brand new app where you tilt your device to fall and collect as many gems and stars as you can before you die.
How to Play
Tilt your device to move your alien left or right as it runs through the environment. Your goal is to collect as many gems as you can to get the highest score before losing both hearts. Avoid enemies and other obstacles to last as long as you can each round.
You can tap the screen at any moment to pause the game. The pause screen will also show you the items you've unlocked so far.
Collect these to increase your score. If you collect them sequentially (try your best not to miss any!), you'll get significantly more points (also known as a "gem combo", or just "gembo").
Stars (or equivalent themed items) give you points, but don't give any bonus points for collecting them sequentially (combos). Rather, stars are worth more depending on how long you've lasted in the round.
Items are unlocked when you reach specific score thresholds (10k, 20k, 50k, 70k). When you pick them up during a game, they provide a score bonus as well as an effect that will help you last longer in the round. Items unlocked in easy mode do not show up in medium or hard mode.
Last long enough and you'll cross a checkpoint. You'll earn 3,000 points every time you cross a checkpoint, and even more starting on your fifth checkpoint in a single round. Your monster will run faster every time you cross a checkpoint (making the game harder) so earn as many points as you can before reaching them!
If you touch a bomb, whether it was intentional or on accident, you lose both of your hearts and the game is over. The only exception is if you pick up the Invincibility or Destroy On Contact items and their effects are still active. In easy mode, you lose only one heart.
Running over these will cost you a heart. Note that when you pick up the Destroy On Contact item, this is the only obstacle that can still deal you damage.
Don't let their cool look fool you. Running into these UFOs will not only cost you a heart, but some hard-earned points as well.
