Description: Feel the exhilaration of extreme free solo climbing. Experience the adrenaline rush as you ascend to epic heights, explore caves, and find shortcuts. Race against your friends’ routes to compete for the fastest times on leaderboards. Navigate and enjoy stunning landscapes from around the world, including the Alps, Southeast Asia, and the American Southwest.

Review: Let us get the biggest question out of the way so we can get on with this review. Is this as good looking as the Oculus Rift version? No…and yes. It is not as realistic-looking that is for sure, but it has been given a Quest makeover which does make it look pretty impressive when you remember that it is little more than mobile graphics. So while it doesn’t look as good in terms of realism, it still looks pretty darn impressive. Now getting back to the game…

While there are save points and easy and hard courses they all tend to get a little tricky towards the top. There is also timed runs and easy and hard routes. But what will get you immersed deeply is not so much the sights, not so much the amazing gameplay, but it is your characters breathing and racing heartbeat sounds. Having been rock climbing myself I can tell you that this is a pretty good experience and very close to the real thing and feels just a tough to play as the original game on the Oculus Rift. Be prepared to panic, sweat and ache like a bitch in the morning.
