From the map start it is a race to make it to the end of the map by going through easy to difficult challenges. There are a couple different gameplay modes: racing, top scorer, free for all. Racing is when from start to finish you try to beat your opponent to the finish line. Top scoring mode is when the person who gets the most points wins. Free for all is just easy going completion where you just try to make it to the end of the map. Typically it will be free for all on most server. You may meet certain people that wish to race. It is all up to you what type of skills mode you want to game with.
You will receive 100 points on most maps after completing all challenges. There is no limit to how many points you can get.

It consists of 28 jumps of variating difficulty, it starts out easy and becomes harder as you progress.
