Descender offers a very interesting gameplay, as it offers a never dull moment to gamers while beating tracks as they can also play in quick blasts. You’re a downhill free rider who has to get down procedurally generated courses with as much style as possible. It's preferable to use a gamepad. You can master your courses making use of the generated ‘tracks,’ but the main thing is the mastery of the bike’s physics. A career mode pits you against a series of courses in the same style of the environment, each with objectives. A new terrain is unlocked when you finish the “boss course” and there are limited lives for the whole run. It's definitely one of the steam games to enjoy.
