Soft launches are a funny thing. Just last night, I was going through my list of apps and saw Radical Rappelling installed on there. This Halfbrick game had been soft launched at some point last year, but apparently seemed either lost to history or doomed to not come out for a long time. After all, Bears vs. Art (Free) was in soft launch for over a year. I thought about deleting the game, but thought “ehh, I’ll keep it around just in case it disappears." Well, consider my surprise when I find out that Radical Rappelling is not disappearing, and in fact is releasing worldwide this week. Halfbrick’s spies are devious and everpresent!
This game has you rappelling down a mountain, trying to collect coins and dodge hazards all the way down, as you try to get as high a score as possible, while outrunning the lava falling from the sky. That seems like a real problem! You can unlock different gear for your rappeller, such as a rhino head, and different colors of rope, though with lava falling from the sky, your color of rope shouldn’t matter!. I had a bunch of fun with it in soft launch, and am excited to see it go global at last. This one will be available as a free game worldwide starting on Thursday, June 4th.
