Users will be put through their paces as they compete against their friends to achieve scores by “showing off their slickest BMX tricks and breakdance skills, to racing to the Parkour finish line alongside the real-life young athletes, who have used their sporting expertise to help Clarks create the newly designed CICA shoe collection.” This will involve the users “showing off their slickest BMX tricks and breakdance skills, to racing to the Parkour finish line alongside the real-life young athletes.”
Athletes such as the UK parkour champion and trainee stuntman Robbie Griffith, the 11-year-old BMX rider Connor Stitt, and the viral breakdance sensation B-Girl Terra from the United Kingdom are featured in the video game.
