"Climb to the top of the building first and then parachute of the roof and land on the ground first! But... there's more to it than that!"
What a strange little game this is, and I like it! You play as a rather big-headed parachutist who, along with three other CPU players, has broken into a very tall building for the purpose of hurling himself off the top! Of course, the security guards aren't lazy, and there are booby traps, TNT barrels, bombs, and bouncy red and white boxes.
Confused? Add to that the ability to push your fellow parachutists into oncoming flagpoles and pipes on the rapid descent down the face of the building! :¬D
It is a wild little game, and the graphics are cutsy and fit perfectly into the feel of the game. It scrolls vertically, and does not stop even if you slow down your ascent, fall behind and you loose points! The sounds are a great addition to this title, and they go hand in hand with very funny gag pick-ups! I don't think there is any other game that allows you to get a 'cheap screen' bonus where your own monitor goes black and white! Of course, to get all these weird and wonderful bonuses you needs to get particular '3 letter bonuses' by collecting three individual letters that fall around the interior of the building in correct order. Great addition, and great fun!
It is definitely a pick-up and play game, you can happily play just the first level over and over because there is so many things that could go wrong... or right!
A recommended game, a small fun giggle of a game!
