Gon is a simple, delightfully designed, physics based game with a decent amount of character to help separate it from the plethora of iOS games on the App Store.  Gons are a species of cute, round, furry characters from another time and space.

The premise of Freaking Furries is simple. You are tasked with saving yellow Furries and avoiding red Furries. You have…
