Imagine a game where the whole point is to fall off things. 'AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity' is that game. You'd be surprised just how hard falling off a log or a building actually is, especially when you're trying to control that fall.

This game is about base jumping. I've never personally base jumped, but I went bungee jumping once. It was a terrifying experience in which I threw my perfectly good body off a perfectly good bridge and then shut my eyes the whole way down and hoped that I didn't die. The sense of relief upon finding that I was still alive was massive. Playing this game is nothing like that. Or perhaps it is sort of like that, in a not at all like that sort of way.

On the one hand, closing your eyes will certainly not help you. A Reckless Disregard for Gravity requires that you stay focused at all times. It also makes you feel a little bit like you are under the influence of something whilst you're playing it. The trippy, sort of industrial music doesn't help matters at all.

This is a game for people who just want to play. There is no story line here, there are no excuses made to keep you grinding level after level, it's all for the pure and total fun of it. Which, in my book, makes this game a definite keeper. When a game makes you want to play it purely because the act of playing it is fun and not because you're being carrot and sticked towards some meaningless goal, you know you have found a winner.

Through playing the game you earn 'teeth' which allow you to unlock new levels and learn new skills. Its fun. Super fun. Before you know it, you will be kissing and hugging buildings like a pro. Keep in mind, it is usually okay to smash into the side of buildings, however smashing into the tops of them at full speed will bring the level to a screeching halt.

The game throws in some other fun amusements besides falling, just to keep things interesting. In some levels you can interact with spectators who are watching you fall through their airborne city of many towers by either giving them a thumbs up if they are supporting you, or by deploying an obscene gesture. You get the idea. You can also tag the buildings as you fall by them, or meditate on the emptiness of the space around you as you fall.

For just $14.99, the game is completely worth the price, and a demo of the first eight out of the 80 levels can be downloaded free with a Steam account.

      I don't totally get it, but it sounds intriguing.
