Just Curious

Just out of curiosity, how come the iPad version is free, but the iPhone version is not?

Oops, I spoke too soon. I'm getting the "Item is being modified" message so I can't download it. I'll give it a few and try again.

I played this a while back. Unfortunately, it isnt the type of runner that I would enjoy. Im pretty sure i got bored of it fast, but I will pick this up again just to see if there were any improvements (I hope!).

Oh... Now i remember why i didnt really like the game.

There's this speed up button, which just messes everything up. Jumping over a gap thinking you'll get to the other side only to have your speed up run out right before you jump. I just hope you accelerate at a steady pace as long as you dont hit an obstacle or you dont get shot.

The slomo is only good for clearing the area of enemies you need to get rid of fast so they dont get you first, but you wont be using it anytime until you get farther. Also, everytime slomo is used it breaks the momentum in the game. I just dont think a slomo feature works in a running game unless it makes you pull ridiculous evasions like in Fireball SE.

The thing I like about the game is the tap to shoot feature. Shoot coins to gather them, shoot deputies to take them out before they get you, and then there are occasional buzzards you'll need to kill to, uhm... well it does nothing. At least nothing I could figure out.

There a nice upgrade feature which gives you more coins to shoot, and an extra life. There's an awesome upgrade to improve the speed up, and there's upgrade for the ill-implemented slomo.

It may just be me, but i cant figure out how there is a slow motion feature in a runner game like this.

Some people may like this game, unfortunately, it didnt capture me with what it offers, and actually turned me off with the slomo feature.

It's free though, so you can see for yourself if you'll like it.
