About This Game

AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! for the Awesome is a semi-sequel to Dejobaan's award-winning 2009 title, AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! -- A Reckless Disregard for Gravity. The new game brings you 82 remastered levels from the original and 43 brand new ones that are twice as fast!

Awards for the original game:

  • Finalist, IGF 2010 Excellence in Design
  • Selected by Penny Arcade for PAX East 2010 Boston Indie Showcase
  • ModDB 2009 Editor's Choice Indie Game of the Year
  • Finalist, Indie Game Challenge 2010

Gameplay:

Aaaaa! took place in an alternate 2011, where BASE jumpers leapt from the skies and executed stunts around the floating buildings of Upper Boston. This semi-sequel picks up six years later -- the sport's been outlawed, and you're jumping as a form of protest. High in Earth's stratosphere, you'll thread a path through the rotating blades of enormous wind turbines. Elsewhere in the solar system, you'll dodge asteroids above seas of lava, spray graffiti onto lunar government offices, and flip off Ganymede colonists -- all in the name of peaceful protest.

At its heart, Awesome is all about speed. With your new wingsuit, you'll dive (and die) twice as fast, descending through hovering cities over Earth and beyond. The fastest jumps now offer checkpoints, so if you mash your brains against extraterrestrial rock, you can rewind time and execute the perfect dodge instead. All this is wrapped up in shiny new graphics -- rebuilt from the ground up, the semi-sequel brings you a new lighting system and fancy shader effects (which, let's face it, the AAA studios had a few years back, but bloom, shadows, and depth of field are all new for Aaaaa!).

Key Features:

  • 82 remastered levels from the award-winning original
  • 43 new levels around Earth, Luna, and Ganymede with a new, faster wingsuit
  • Hug terrain, kiss concrete, and thread the needle for points
  • Get bear hugs, slice netting, and hit invulnerability plates for wanton destruction
  • Give your fans the thumbs-up for points or annoy protesters with rude gestures

I received this off humble bundle. It's a very interesting game.

Basically, the game simulates you falling off a building, and you have to make it to your target without hitting other parts of the building. To be honest, I found the game quite offensive due to the nature of falling out of buildings. I felt really scared once I jumped off and I thought it was real for a second.

I don't recommend this game if you have vertigo, which I have.

I rate it 9 out of 11.

Quite a fun little game. I don't normally like this kind of thing but it is very enjoyable and gets difficult very quickly if you want to keep making good scores.

Fun game when I played it on the Rift DK1. Waiting for Rift CV support before I fully recommend it.

A game about skydiving as recklessly as possible to earn points. Its unique and fun though you may want to get ready for repeated failure.

Well, now that it doesn't support the Consumer Version 1 or any runtime past .6, like I don't really have too much of a point to play it. The game itself isn't bad though. I don't recommend it for anyone that heard it supports VR because at this point unless you have a DK1 it doesn't.

I do recommend it for non-VR users though.

There isn't much to say about this game. It's essentially a sky diving simulator mixed with some Tony Hawk. If you see it on sale, give it a try, it's a good way to kill a couple of hours.

A remaster with new levels, Aaaaa for the Awesome fixes the flaws of the original and improves upon them. It also has VR support and jumping off buildings and parachuting has never been more fun!

Horribly annoying title but pretty damn fun game.

It makes me motion sick as it is though.
I wonder if a vr version of it would cause vast amounts of puking.

When I first started the game up, I was very sceptical of it. Everything from the name, the intro screen to the actual gameplay struck me as cheap and plain bad. I went through a few levels, the whole time thinking "What the ♥♥♥♥ am I doing?" and quit.

I decided to jump back into the game again after I felt pretty bored. I started seeing a pattern, and I was actually enjoying the randomness of it all. I understood what hugs, kisses, thumbs ups and obscenities did. I was just dumbfounded when I saw that I got 2000 Teeth after a level, but then I figured out it's just basically points in order to unlock other levels. After that, I started getting a lot more into it.

I passed most of the normal levels, when I noticed a button at the bottom of the screen, titled "Awesome!!!". So, I clicked on it, and another full page of levels popped up. The same as the regular ones, but here you unlock them by getting knees instead of teeth. Except, these ones were... pretty ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ intense. Compared to the first levels, here you were falling at supersonic speeds, straining hard to concentrate on the mess of colors, patterns, beeps and clicks as you flew past the actually beautiful world. At first I thought it was a dumb game, very relaxed and easy, but boy, some of these levels are tough! . I found myself more dedicated to passing a level than in any other game I've ever played, and I kept going for more!

Overall, at first glance the game seems very bland and stupid and random. But it slowly starts taking up shape in your mind, making more and more sense. The real fun starts when you get good enough to start the "Awesome!!!" level pack, because some of the levels nearly caused adrenaline to seep out of my skin.

I'd give this game a very strong 9/10, because it does take a bit of time to get used to the weirdness of it. But, trust me, once you get a bit more into it, the game really shines, and is insanely fun.

Addictive game about sky diving. Nice visuals, good soundtrack, well made game mechanics in which you are getting points for gliding close to the buildings and objects.

Fun for a little while, but ultimately repetitive, shallow, and headache-inducing. Not as funny as it thinks it is, either. Worth a try as part of a bundle, but not something I would recommend for direct purchase.

Looked like a laugh and it kind of is for a short time, but it gets old fast despite the bragging of how many levels they have. If you like casual games and don't mind repetition or you love score chasing, you could do worse I guess. 5/10

This game can be summed up in one phrase - butt clenching base jumping simulator. It ticks several boxes:

[x] Tons of levels
[x] Blood pumping music
[x] Weird as hell tapes that are genuinely disturbing
[x] Diverse stages with pretty graphics
[x] Clever mechanics to keep the gameplay fun and not repetitive

So if you want to play a good time wasting, arcady game, I'd recommend this.

I've been having a really tough time of things lately, but this game brought a little joy into my life. It's FUN. There's some adult humour, but this is the kind of game I'll happily let my kids play. Sure beats Gears of Halo: Advanced Snorefare.

Here is all the FAQ you need to know if you want to buy this game.


Q: Is that game good?
A: well that depends, can you handle a game that literally takes your logic and then ♥♥♥♥♥ all over it just to then light on fire and use as warmth during the middle of the day when its 90 degrees out and the planet is quickly hurtling towards the sun to be disintegrated after which the sun blows up and out comes this game wearing your logic as a baby bib and your mental sanity as a diaper.

if so then you will love this game.
