The game forever falling consists of you jumping out of a plane and falling to the ground. Once you jump out of the plane you have to dodge different objects such as rocks, birds, toy rockets, clouds and kites. You also have to collect a parachute so you can land and go to the next level. You have three chances to get a parachute so you won't die straight away. If you don't collect any parachutes you fall to the ground and die, which means you have to retry the level again. If you collect a parachute and dodge all the obstacle you have to try and land on the ground. If you land on the ground you complete the level ad go on to the next level. Each level it becomes harder to dodge the obstacles and also there will be different weather conditions like lots of wind, rain, hail or storms.
