Freefall4k is a very simple falling game, where the goal is to hit as many clouds as possible on the way down. What makes gameplay interesting is that this is a one-button game: You can only push the ball left, so to go right you’ll have to bounce off the left wall. Being one of my earlier 4k games, there is not a lot of content in this game.
