So, you move around the playfield and leave walls of cubes behind you. The combination of both: 3d and rasterized movement, give the game a feeling similiar to “First-Person 3D-Tetris”: When the playfield becomes quite crowded, you quickly need to navigate trough a 3D-maze.
Similiar to skateboarding-sims and co., CCW awards extra points for performing certain stunts, like “orbiting” around an enemy wall, and other tricks.
The game feels very polished and player-friendly – it even comes with a detailed and accessable training mode, where you can freely practice the various stunts, including visual and aural help when to perform which turns.
The only thing which keeps me from giving this game a rating of 5, is that it is restricted to 1player. The lack of multiplayer feels quite strange to me, since this is one of those games, which would be the most fun if played with other humans. A similiar game with multiplayer-support exists, but it feels much less polished than CCW.
