Sky Dive looks easy but the important factor to consider in here is timing. Your main goal is to safely reach the ground before your opponent. The game will start on the clouds where the two players are waiting for the Go signal.

As soon as it says Go, you should click to jump down from the cloud. Next you must have the right time to open up your parachute and the best time for it is when you see the blue top of mountains or the green treetops. When you failed to open up your parachute on time, you will crash on the ground making your opponent win even though you landed first because that is the goal of the game, to land safely on the ground. There are also scenarios that the game will be tied, which is if both players did not reach the ground safely or they have both false starts.
