In today's episode the contestant must traverse through rooftops of Neo Helsinki, the prize money is hidden high up on top of a crane. Can he keep his momentum alive or will he blow up? Stay tuned to find out! Let's get started!

The game is kind of a 3D platformer set on city rooftops. You must keep your momentum up to reach the goal.
