GAME OF THE DAY
Up, up and away
Rise Up is made for high score chasers.
Only 1% Pass 1000
The world is a dangerous place, especially for a vulnerable balloon. We’re counting on you to protect it... no pressure.
The minimalist arcade game Rise Up starts with a balloon, well, rising up. And just like that, an adrenaline rush begins in the brain.
Clear away hazardous obstacles by swiping your finger. The shield control is rather easy to grasp but more intuitive than you may expect, which makes the experience equally entertaining and frustrating at the same time.
Here are three survival tips from Serkan Özyılmaz, the creator of Rise Up himself:
1. Keep your guard close to the balloon.
2. Throw obstacles to the sides of the screen, not to the top!
3. Use challenges mode to practise each obstacle set.
Rise Up is a difficult game that grows the more you keep playing. Each interaction is a unique experience, so relying on muscle memory isn’t an option. There will be high scores, and there will be brutal defeats. Whatever happens, you’ll need to find the resilience to hit that replay button – one, more, time.
