Today's indie app of the day is The Sleeping Prince. It's a goofy adventure game with rag doll physics. You essentially throw this guy around for 40 levels.

What is The Sleeping Prince?

The Sleeping Prince is a platform action game with a unique set of physics. You play as a sleeping prince named Prince Perilous who sleeps through the entire adventure and you must throw him around to slay bad guys and save the kingdom. It’s currently free in the Google Play Store on a promotional basis but eventually it’ll be a paid app with an undetermined price.

In most cases, the game feels and acts like and action platformer. You jump around, beat up bad guys, solve puzzles and collect various items and gems to collect points, unlock levels, and purchase upgrades. The catch is that guy you play is stone cold asleep and instead of running and jumping, you’re flinging this dude’s unconscious body around every level. Think of it like Sheriff Woody from Toy Story when the kid is in the room and throwing him around. That’s what this game is like.

There are 40 levels that are filled with items, puzzles, and bad guys. The flinging physics are a fun and hilarious take on the action platformer and forces players to look at the genre from a different perspective which is nice. The game does work offline which is a nice touch for those of you who need that.

Overall, this is a goofy little platformer that provides something a little bit different. There was something a little macabre about throwing a sleeping guy around and using his inert body as a weapon but it’s a feeling that quickly passes and turns into fun. It is currently free but it won’t stay that way forever so you’ll have to check and see what the price is for you.
