Those jumping to super heights games are a dime a dozen. It’s time to take that premise and change it up. Instead of jumping, players are now falling through an endless tunnel. The goal is to try and avoid the inevitable for as long as possible: becoming a bloodstain on the walls. With 20 different obstacles, keeping Fred’s head on may be a task only for those with quick reflexes. Players can even share their “landings” with one another via Facebook and Twitter.

Sure you may not be kicking some mad 720s off a half pipe, but you will be bouncing off bums to add a precious few points to your score!
