Visu­al­ize vault­ing sky-high in busi­ness with quick think­ing

The Washington Post Sunday - - TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION - — Hayley Tsukayama

High Risers gives climb­ing the cor­po­rate lad­der a whole dif­fer­ent twist. Rather than good ideas and great mem­o­writ­ing abil­ity, you need quick re­flexes and some quick think­ing. Play­ers tap to make a small busi­ness­man or busi­ness­woman jump their way to the top of a sky­scraper. The catch is that your am­bi­tious avatar never stops run­ning, so you must pay close at­ten­tion and have very good tim­ing to keep him or her from sail­ing right off the edge of the build­ing on a golden parachute.

Play­ers also col­lect coins in the game, which you can use to un­lock prizes from time to time. You can opt to watch ads to pick up more coins, if you want.

The app does have in-app pur­chases, in case you want to buy dif­fer­ent char­ac­ters or set­tings.

This is a sim­ple app with sim­ple graph­ics, but it could get pretty ad­dic­tive if you let it. It doesn’t re­quire an In­ter­net con­nec­tion to work, so you can play just about any­where.

Free, for iOS and An­droid.
