Race Rounds

As its name suggests, Race Rounds are races from starting line to finish line. Players have to complete with each other to dodge obstacles and reach the finish line as quickly as they could.

1. Dizzying Heights

Navigate the obstacles and race to the finish line! There are four sections in this game mode, spinning discs, a boulder chute, elevated spinning discs, and a final combination of boulders and spinning stairs.

Try titling it towards the heaviest side and cross the platform to finish the race as quickly you can.

Logic Rounds

Instead of running around and dodging obstacles, player needs to focus on their brain power and logic.

Perfect Match
