Description: Sometime in the future, you’re hired by a well-funded group of individuals that uses time travel to cautiously extract ancient artifacts from secret locations just before they are destroyed by an apocalyptic event, not to mess with the timeline, of course.

As an Extractor in Hover The Edge, you’ll be despatched to an exotic island to recover the Sword of Souls, a weapon forged in another dimension to protect the human world from otherworldly threats, you’ll be armed with a futuristic hoverboard and a combat suit, these will allow you to recover the artefact and return to base before the apocalyptic event.

Review: ‘Hover The Edge’ is a hoverboard style game in which you have to get to the end of the level in 10 minutes or less and you only have a few lives to keep going. Each bump or fall into the water sees you losing one of those lives. In short, you have to go fast, while trying not to crash. The first few times I tried to play it I have to say I really didn’t enjoy it. The controls are loose and you drift all over the place and the storyline is thinner than a human hair. You even collect coins that you can’t seem to spend anything on!

But yet…in time I started to enjoy it, I started to do a little better and I realised the game isn’t terrible looking at all and it is free after all. I think if there had been the smallest of fees I would have also still given it the thumbs up. Sure, there isn’t much to this game, but give yourself time to get used to the controls and you will find yourself enjoying it and it is free after all, so what harm is there in trying it?
