One of the most fun aspects of playing game series like Assassin’s Creed and Prince of Persia is the cool platforming mechanic. Packed throughout the games are constant opportunities to showcase slick and cool parkour moves, whether you want to quickly escape ground level upto the building rooftops above or simply have fun getting from A to B. While any player can do this in the games, I doubt many could go further than climbing a wall in real life.
Cue Jyoti Raju, an indian man who found his true calling entertaining tourists by free-climbing the tall stone structures and walls at the historically famous Chitradurga Fort, Karnataka. Videos of his ‘Assassin’s Creed’ like skills went viral back in 2009 and continue to stun people today. Check out the ‘over-the-top’, fun action-sports edit of Jyoti Raju below:
