Flip Diving Review (UMi Max): Fun, Nicely Rendered Animations, but Gets Old Fast (Video)
A couple of months ago, while testing the phone UMi Max, we also played with a game called Flip Diving. This title is all about jumping from a high cliff, straight into water, while also doing some stunts. The game comes from Miniclip.com and it was tested on the UMi Max.
It’s available for free in the Play Store and it lets you unlock all sorts of flips, like the front flip, back flip and characters like a business man, bodybuilder, karate diver, holiday diver and even a penguin mascot. Obviously they cost quite a bit. You can also unlock new locations and spin a sort of roulette to get currency. Ragdoll physics are quite fine here and there are 50 jump platforms available.
The control is very simple, you keep the screen pressed to prep for the jump and press it again and keep pressed in order to spin the character and have him crouch or prepare some other stance in mid air. The best dives (out of 3) get recorded and can be shared with friends. Each diver comes with a special ability and type of jump, plus unique physics, depending on weight, height and more.
This game is good for a couple of minutes of fun and that’s it. We give it a 7.5 out of 10 and you can get it here.
