The Planetary Parkour map takes players on an interstellar journey across the solar system as they go through the various different parkour courses that are situated in the many different planets of our galaxy. It’s not necessarily the most challenging map out there, but it features a lot of great gameplay enhancements as well as a very intriguing setting, so it’s definitely worth giving a shot. The pack has been out for just over a week and since then has been downloaded over 3,000 times which is absolutely incredible.
Planetary Parkour features a total of five different parkour courses, each one on a different planet. The planets in this map are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars and Uranus. Other than their own unique visual designed, the main difference that you’ll see between each planet is the value of gravity. Mars, for example, has a really low gravity which allows you to execute jumps much easier than you normally would whereas Uranus has a high gravity which makes jumping a pretty difficult task. The aspect of gravity brings a refreshing twist to the traditional parkour gameplay.
Other than the element of Gravity, Planetary Parkour also features three unique types of blocks which are the Blinking Blocks, Falling Blocks and Leaping Fire Blocks. The Blinking Blocks keep appearing and disappearing after two second intervals to make jumping harder, the Falling Blocks drop down a second after you land on them so you need to react really click if they’re on your course and the Leaping Fire Blocks (present only in Venus) spit fire after every few seconds that will immediately send you back to the last checkpoint if you get hit by it. The total play-time of the map is estimated to be around 50 minutes, and overall it’s pretty enjoyable thanks to the various gameplay changes and, of course, the outer space setting.
