Being a head has never been so much fun!

Lured by the promise of a free sausage, Ian has found himself falling into the depths of the machine in this delightfully macabre take on the falldown genre.

Tilt the screen to guide Ian through the devious traps and devilish spikes. How far can you go before.... the inevitable end?


The gameplay idea behind When Ian Fell In The Machine grew from a coding bug in another game, also featuring Ian. We enjoyed the idea so much we made it into a full game.


  • Three levels of difficulty. Each with its own tricks and surprises.
  • Upgrade Ian with new clothing and equipment to help you get further.
  • Game Centre leader boards and achievements on iOS
  • Google Play leader boards and achievements on Android
  • Heads, spikes and sausages! All in one game.
