Brave Man [iPhone]

braveman00

Fourth in the series of TomTom (Poppy F) games, comes Brave Man, a new retro pixel art adventure in the style of already mentioned Sweep Man, Giant Metal Robot and Hotdog Panic.

Brave Man picks up on the all famous 5-finger fillet, a game of knives and fingers also known as the knife game. Interestingly, the game of knives was first seen in Roman Polanski‘s 1962 film Knife in the Water, not that the game by Poppy bares any relation but it is nevertheless a nerve racking adventure illustrated using Poppy’s signature pixel art. The knife moves left to right and the task is to tap on the screen just as the knife is between the fingers. As you progress, the movement gets faster feeding panic into tapping rhythm. This is of course accompanied by the wonderful graphics and slightly bloody consequence of tapping too early or too late.

As with the Hotdog Panic, online ranking system is included where you can compare your score to others’. My best score is 38 but I am sure I can do better (see filip).

A wonderful new addition, as was with the previous games, collect them all!

      Not sure if you ever got an answer to the question you posted on Twitter about the first movie the knife game appeared in…the answer is “Knife in the Water.” Would love a promo code if you still have any.
