A Flipping Good Time is a fast-paced free-flowing 2D platformer. Flip and fly through an expansive underground world using the fluid nature of gravity to avoid the hazardous terrain. With challenging obstacles, exhilarating mine cart rides, an immersive environment, rewarding collectibles, and entertaining levels with unlockable bonus levels, A Flipping Good Time is just that: A Flipping Good Time.

The game is also a student project from DigiPen Institute of Technology developed by Mike's Plumbing and Tile: Media Arts Division, a Sophomore team. The team is comprised of three programmers, two game designers, one full time artist, and one audio technician. The game was developed over the course of one school year (two semesters) for a 200 level project class. The experience of team development, especially in a Sophomore level class, was amazing. So far, the game has been recognized by PAX10 and The Extra Credits Innovation Awards.

A Flipping Good Time is a great game; Polished and with a good set of features. You can get through the main game quite quickly, but there are lots of bonus levels and bones gems to get in the main champaign, as well as just trying to beat your best score/time. If you like fast paced platformers then you are going to love this game.
