⛰️ Don't Look Down

Conquer a challenging aerial obstacle course in this fast-paced 2D game mode!

Your goal? To race to the top before time runs out or someone else gets to the final peak first.

Answer questions to fuel your ascent of 6 treacherous summits. One mistake can lead to a long fall. Make sure every move is precise. The higher up you make it, the longer you have to fall. Try not to let that worry you — just don’t look down! 🙈
