In addition to putting their reflexes to the test, users who play the arcade-style game will pass by many wild and interesting Freespace Fest characters, including musicians rocking day away, people dancing in the park, creative and unique artists, and much more. The app also features both day scenes and night scenes, which adds to the realism and excitement.

In addition, during a special competition that runs from October 22, 2014 to November 18, 2014 at 12:00pm (Hong Kong time), Freespace Challenge! players can win great prizes:
