Now THIS is an iPhone game. Free Fall High Score is a self-described “antagonistic” app where the whole point is to drop your iPhone off the tallest building you can find. The higher, the better.
I’m really hoping that this can become a thing. Just watch the video. The guys tossed their iPhone off the High Line Park in New York (an elevated “urban park” on the west side) and recorded the whole thing as proof. Sure, the video only lasted all of six seconds before it landed but think about the adrenaline rush! It’s balls-out crazy.
From what I can make out, here are the rules of the Free Fall High Score game:
• Grab your iPhone
• Set your iPhone to record video
• Toss said iPhone off a really tall building
• Have friends catch the falling iPhone with a blanket (this is pretty important!)
• Stop recording
• Longest recorded video of a falling iPhone wins
The ‘game’ was created during Art Hack Weekend presented by The Creators Project and Eyebeam Team and I think there are people that can do better. six seconds is chump change, the High Line can’t be taller than like seven storeys. If you do decide to play this game (and for legal reasons, I cannot encourage you to play it and ruin your phone), be sure to tag your video #freefallhighscore on Twitter!
