Even at this point, i think i can include this in my favorite runners list.
Playing the Android version and definitely would put it near the top of the list of BTB runners. A fantastic amount of variety and nice visuals. Not sure if maybe it was optimized better but the animations look really good on Android (something that probably couldn't be said on a lot of cross platform games).

Not a big fan of the falling portions but very impressed overall. I do agree that the upgrades are a bit steep. The movie apparently sucks but for once the tie-in doesn't.

All that said, I'm sure this will go free with the business model it has. Not that any IAPs are required.

agree the game looks weak/basic will be free sooner or later + the movie looks terrible, the one liners, lame son and dad team... i think this is the sequel to "The Pursuit of Happyness" after the happyness went bad.

it was nice seeing the prequel "the karate kid" which was a real crapper that can never touch the original nostalgia/80's era! (a remake that should never had been made)

This game was recently updated and I played it a bit and I think IT'S FANTASTIC.

The tilt part, can now be swiped (not sure if it was like this before, but i just found out recently), kinda like Verticus, but with different physics settings.

It's a side-scrolling runner, a behind-the-back runner, a "verticus-ish" runner, has vehicles (i've only seen 2, but i expect to see more), has a story, has combat, has level-based modes, has endless modes, has boss fights.

Should have spent more time on this... So i will.

End this charade. It will eventually be eternally free.

Never opens on an iPhone 5s. So I can't play the game. Even after the update. So I = delete (permanently)
