This is a game that practically anyone can pick up and enjoy."

In Rope Raider the basic game play consists of shooting a rope and then swinging forwards from building to building. The environment is an atmospheric dusky cityscape with ambient sounds and interesting visual effects. In total there are three game modes: Free Swingin', Coin Rush, and Speed Frenzy.

The difficulty level affects the placement and height of the buildings and also the time limits.
