_B.A.S.E. jumping featuring Felix Baumgarntner_ is a sports game which
simulates base jumping which is a variant of parachuting. Instead of planes
these athletes jump from bridges, skyscrapers or cliffs. The game focuses on a
realistic simulation of this discipline.
Because of the nature of this sport the player is amateur and needs to earn
his money with a “real” job. In the career mode this means the player uses the
fast motion mode until he has enough money to participate in a championship.
There are four locations in Norway, Russia, USA and Mexico with several
different jumps each. Before the jump the player chooses his equipment and
positions himself in a third person perspective. During the jump the game
alternates into first person where the handling is similar to flight
simulations. The player needs to consider several factors, e.g. wind or size
and opening speed of the parachute.
Successful jumps give more money which can be reinvested into better gear.
There are also several missions available which basically tells the player
which moves he has to perform during the next jump. Other possible actions are
training jumps, healing injuries or travelling to championships as visitor.
