Looks interesting, at 2.99 though I'll wait for some impressions. Or a lite version.

This is what I wrote on the closed thread about this game:

I gave in. In answer to LordGek's question, there are four different locations, but the obstacle are randomized in each. In a way, this is a very fancy (and slower) version of Run and Cannabalt, with a bit of a extreme-sports gloss, unlockable gear, and ragdoll physics. It actually isn't bad, though the jump mechanism allows you to turn a step into a leap in middair -- not very realistic. The graphics are actually pretty impressive, with very smooth animation, detailed backgrounds, etc. I have yet to finish the first course -- fallen flat on my face a few times. All in all, not bad.
Now I'm on the fourth location after the tutorial, and I have to say that the game is better than I originally thought. There are a few rough spots, sure, but the courses get more and more challenging and interesting (in fact, the game turns into a bit of a platformer), and pulling off "tricks" gets to be a lot of fun.

Definitely one that grows on you.
