High Risers is a 2D arcade game in which you try to jump as high as you can up a building. The problem? Some of the walls are missing! So as you jump, you'll need to be careful to make sure that you don't go flying. Your character moves in a straight line by default, so when you hit a wall, you turn and keep going in the other direction. By tapping on the screen, you can make your character jump, but you have to be careful not to jump on a part of the building that's missing a wall. If you do, you'll fall and will have to start the game over from the beginning. As you play, you can collect coins. As is typical in games of this type, you can use these coins to unlock new additional content, like more characters and settings. In total, you'll find over 30 different characters to unlock and up to 10 different settings. High Risers is an original, fun, and very addictive 2D arcade game. It's another amazing game from the same masterminds behind Time Surfer and Duet, among others.
