Players can race against the clock and acquire gold stars, extinguish fires and save the city, or unleash their creativity by writing in the sky.

It’s a short experience which will cause big reactions – exhilaration, fear and laughter – it’s always surprising to see how each person reacts.
Review: If you want to prove that VR can sometimes feel terrifyingly real this is the app to put people into. Even if you don’t think you have a fear of heights this app will give it to you. It looks amazing, its a joy to watch people play and even features some mini-games to give the app a little bit of longevity. But sadly this app really shows off the limitations of the PSVR’s tracking with the camera and it does tend to break any immersion this experience gives you. If you really want to play this get the Oculus Quest version as it works much better. This is a good app, just best avoided on the PSVR.
