Parkour: Roof Riders[Game]
Parkour is the act of moving from from Point A to Point B as fast as possible. The concept was invented by the French and in recent years Parkour has got a lot of attention from different groups, anyone who has seen Casino Royale for example knows what I am talking about. Parkour Roof Riders is a nice little game for Parkour enthusiast to get in on the action from the comfort of their android smartphone.
The game is like a traditional 2D game where the character moves across a 2D world. You can play on different levels with varying difficulties from city streets where you’ll occasionally get chased by a dog to rooftops and some other scenarios to play through aswell. The graphics are fairly basic but its not an eye sore, the game looks nice. Across every level you’ll have to scale objects by jumping over them, rolling underneath them and other moves. Its similar in some ways to Stellar Escape but there is a big difference in the way the characters move.
There are a lot of tricks to do besides the basic jump and roll, you have a high jump, backflip, front flip, dive and many other tricks. At start you’ll only get to know about basic tricks, the rest you have to figure out on your own through experimenting with gestures. I won’t give anything away but try stuff like a “U” shaped gesture or rapidly moving your finger up and down to do a cool move.
There isn’t much to say about the game, I won’t say its one of the best games on Android but it is one of the best Parkour games available and for that it deserves being mentioned. But generally speaking the game is a lot of fun with lots of moves to perform and a great experience once you get a hang of the gestures based controls (I had difficulty with them, you might not ofcourse). You should try out the LITE version on the market and if Parkour really is your thing go for the full version HERE.
