Urban Thrill is a free running game which takes you across the globe, taking risks and making decisions to determine your final score. Glide your way through the urban sprawl of London, the gleaming skyscrapers of Rio de Janeiro, the underbelly of downtown New York and six more international locations, picking up kites as you go to become the ultimate free running powerhouse.

Each level contains five Powerballs placed in locations designed to test your freerunning skills to the max.

Your challenge is to use all the moves at your disposal to reach these goals. Can you reach all five on each stage before time runs out?

We welcome all reviews.

Good, but not enough?

It was a good idea, and it looks like alot of work was put into this game. Just maybe not enough?

I dont mean to be offensive, but this game just didn't seem to fit the freerunning genre. It says that the characters are into extreme sports and adrenaline, but things like the music and the art style dont really reflect this. It makes the whole thing seem like a minigame of something bigger, like a side-quest in a game about a bunch of college kids who like to surf and shop. One more thing to add about the visual is how the way the characters run just looks awkwardly unbalanced.

Anyway, aside from that, I didnt have too many problems with the controls, but I did find it quite difficult to distinguish what was a wall and what was just the background graphics. Walls just seem to pop up out of nowhere in this game. And the characters also seem to be really particular about which ledges they choose to cliffhang on; with certain ledges they refuse to grab them at all. What's that about?

To end on a good note, something I did like was the number of options for levels.

Good Concept, Bad Execution

The controls were actually okay. But the players aren't. The controls make the Play really sticky. This could actually be on the front page if it wasn't for the execution.
You should edit this and make it good. But for now, I've got to say it's a 6. :/

Thank you for the review. Sorry you've found the controls sticky but we've had 100s of 1000s of players control the characters without difficulty so we don't think there is a control issue affecting all. Sure would be lovely to get front page!

Had Potential

This game is a really great concept that is very badly executed. The animation is horrible the woman moves around the screen as if in slow motion. The environments are static and stale. Yet I really like some the ideas here being able to skate around and do so pretty nice tricks in the process is really cool idea. I really wish you would or somebody would take this idea and polish cause then it would be a great game. Right now it seems more like a demo than a real game

Not very good

The jump button is horrible, in my opinion. Movement sensitivity is too touchy and it doesn't feel good in general.
