The game provides a number of beautifully presented environments to race through, all which have their own unique elements. Deserts come with a large number of hills to perform aerial tricks, while forests provide lots of tight turns and trackside trees to avoid, which makes it tricky to ride at full speed. It doesn't end there though, as you'll find yourself racing down an icy glacier, riding on the rooftops of Favelas and there may even be a volcano in there too.
However, what makes Descenders unique, are the roguelike elements, which mean the tracks always have a random element to their design and layout. Complete an entire run in any environment without bailing out too many times, and you get to face the challenge of a boss level — a steeper, tricker course that has a massive jump at the climax.
As you race, you'll earn rep (reputation) points and these are key to unlocking the game's customisable elements. Progress well in the game and earn enough points and you'll be able to deck yourself out in new gear and try out the various different bikes and paint jobs the game has on offer.
