I'll start off this quick review on a positive note - I flaming love this game! Available for just the BlackBerry Z10 at the time of writing this, Cliff Diving 3D is certainly not as easy as it looks. If you fancy a challenge, combined with rather nice graphics then this one will be for you.

From the home screen of the app you can view a tutorial which is worth checking out. Alternatively, there is also the option to see a demonstration and this will take you to a YouTube video where you can see the game in action.

As you would imagine, the concept of the game is pretty straight forward. You can choose to be either a male or female character and its then just a case of jumping from the cliff and performing the correct dive. Once you are ready to play the game you'll be given the information you need at the top of the screen. This will include the type of dive and whether you need to enter the water head or feet first. Also shown is the height of the board and how many jumps out of three you have made, as if you get it wrong three times in a row it's back to the start of the game.

Controlling your diver simple. Just tap the screen to start the jump and once in mid air you use the two tuck and pike tabs to summersault. It's tricky though - as you need to enter the water at a decent angle in order to score. As you complete each dive the board then gets higher as well as the dives becoming more complicated.

With realistic sound effects and stunning graphics the game really is a joy to play. One thing I like (even though it makes things a little harder) is that the camera angle changes with some dives - a nice touch by the dev.

Priced at £0.75/$0.99 Cliff Diving 3D is a worthy purchase if you ask me. It does take some practice to get the hang of things, but it's a load of fun. See if you can beat my high score of 1044?

Features of the game include:

  • Beautiful 3D graphics!
  • Fun pick-up-and-play gameplay. Easy to learn but hard to master.
  • Forward and reverse dives and flips.
  • Pike and tuck dive positions can be combined in a single dive for bonus points.
  • Convincing and fun physics engine makes for unpredictable falls should you hit the rocks on the way down!
  • Expert mode to wring out the highest scores for competitive players.

Nice one and as well very cool to see new innovative games ( and apps)

the future is easy because it doesn't exist

It's not free? All BlackBerry apps should be free. BlackBerry Devs should never be paid. This is why BlackBerry is DOA. Where is my instagram and miracast?

OMG. WTF. Blah, blah, blah...

Lol.

Seriously though. Support these gals/guys. Buy their apps.

Also....I want Bridge back to the way it was.

In the condition of this company a lot should be free. Haven't bought any games or apps and never will. It simply isn't worth it. And some games are $3.99!! They're crazy. Especially when you can't even store then on a memory card

And how would you suggest that BB engineer a situation where "a lot" of products for sale by private devs become free? Would BB pay the dev for each sale instead of the customer? How would a price be determined, since there's no free market in such a scheme to provide that mechanism? Who would decide which apps deserved to be subsidized?

是的,但你需要一个共同的语言是英语.在正常情况下,我会说法语. 去论坛,而不是在博客。

This reminds me a lot of the diving part of EA's old "Summer Games" for the Commodore 64. I'd really like to see someone adapt the other parts and maybe "Winter Games" too. I'll definitely check this out

That's my exact thought too! Sadly that shows our age lol! Most people are probably asking "Commodore who?"

Ha! 99 cents what a shame. Should be free. 1 dollar here, 3 dollars there, 4 dollars there. Imagine how much some people have spent on apps and games. We need a site that has bar files for paid games. Maybe some torrents or something

Some people love to complain. When you go out drinking for one night you can spend close to $100. If you spent that on apps that's weeks of entertainment as opposed to one evening. Think of the cost of entertainment per hour and a few bucks here and there is a fine deal.

You can't be that ignorant that you missed the point of his post. Surely the same concept can be applied for other things in your social life. But perhaps you have none at all.

If you can't pay 99 cents for a game, go get a job that would pay you enough so you wouldn't be thinking you cannot afford to spend 99 cents.

If you can afford it and cannot understand there are developers that spend time and money making games and apps, go get a phone that utilizes a non BlackBerry operating system.

Or make your own apps since you seem to have plenty of time to continually make comments related to you not wanting to pay for apps and games on a BlackBerry device.

I have a great paying job actually. That's why I'm smart with what I spend. So please try again

You say you want a site where you can get paid games for free?

You clearly value your own work, but don't value anyone else's hard work or effort. That just unethical and selfish.

You should learn to respect others more and not try to get the benefits of their work for free.

And by the way I can go cliff diving down the street. So yes it's a pointless game to waste money on. Should be free with the direction BlackBerry is heading in

If I hadn't seen your previous posts above, where you express your apparent ignorance of both (a) the difference between the company known as BlackBerry and the devs who write apps for its products, and (b) the existence of other cultures and languages beyond your own, I might have thought that your public proposal for the creation of a criminal black market of stolen apps was merely trolling. But having read your other comments above, I realize that it's probable that you really are proposing that we create an organized campaign of thievery. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. Otherwise, get a damn job.

Who pay for bad quality? Do you do that? Ouch......... make it smooth like a silk, sure no people complaining anymore. that why people compare with other platforms developer that can do smooth there but not here. Our thinking will be questions about. :)
