These 5 are the best behind the back runners as of today.
But how does this really compare to the others. Honestly Subway Surfer was probably the only one that felt good to me. I was disappointed by The End, never got Axon Runners because I heard a lot of mixed things about it. And last week's Mutant Roadkill wasn't bad but was too much like Zombie Highway.

Axon Runners is more of a free-movement version of Subway surfers. If subway surfers lets you move in 4 directions (left, right, jump, slide), think of Axon Runners as it's 360 degree control brother.

My comments:

- not really into tilt controls like the other runners, so the swipes in Agent Dash are a welcome change for me
- graphics are top notch with colorful backgrounds and lush environments, reminds me of Crash Bandicoot crossed with The Incredibles
- doesn't feel "endless"; you always start from a jungle and progressively make your way through several different stages
- Facebook leaderboard is pretty useless

Worth a download

Hi gang,

We hope you're all enjoying the game.

We've noticed some concern about the amount of Facebook posting going on - let us assure you that *this isn't* the intended volume of posts and that we're going to be working around the clock to get this fixed in an update as soon as possible.

  • In the meantime, you can avoid this risk by *only* signing in from the Front End - *do not* sign in from the Results Screen.

  • If you find yourself falling victim to ludicrous amounts of posting, you can resolve this by closing the game completely and relaunching.

We're sorry that some of you have been affected by this - it's a game we're pretty proud of and want you guys to have the best experience with it. By doing the above, you can log into Facebook with complete confidence - trust us

Seriously, the Facebook leaderboards really come into their own when you get some of your friends involved!

Thanks a lot for taking the time to read this - we hope you continue to enjoy Agent Dash!

FullFat, could you add the "2x Gems" IAP (each gem is worth 2 gems intead of 1)??? It would make the grinding a lot easier and more fun

Well, there's some of us who use Facebook just to keep in touch with long lost friends, and I'll admit it, most of us here are iOS gaming geeks. Doesn't mean I want my other friends to know it .

I guess one of these days I should create a FB geek account just for things like this.

Just got the game and it's amazing!
I loved the art style, along which the soundtracks and environments remind me a lot of Disney's The Incredibles.

I'm enjoying it more than Subway Surfers and TheEndApp, by the way.

Been playing quite a bit and its awesome, here are some impressions after almost an hour

Good: Never played other games in this genre, but Agent Dash is fast, fun and frantic, as you have to constantly changing lanes, dashing left or right, jumping or sliding for gems or avoiding death... and both looks and sounds are fantastic. Graphics are outstanding and like everyone says, its a lot like The Incredibles. Controls are responsive, which is great, and you will need them
There is A LOT of missions, like 50, and some are very hard to get, so this one will take a fun (and maybe some frustration) long time to finish
I play on an iPhone 4 and its really smooth, no lag or framedrops. Another good things are: Boss levels with shooting and that you can change lanes mid-air, really nessesary

IAP: If this game came out in the pre-IAP era and instead of buying with coins you unlock the old way, this could be one of the greatest games ever for me.
Two characters are really expensive, and it seems some upgrades are too. There is also a consumable items shop, and those are very expensive too...
But at least the game is really generous with gems, and I collected quite a few so far and bought all level 1 upgrades... now saving for a new character.

Bad: That consumable shop make this game more based on IAP than on skill. No achievements, every runner needs those at the very start, without them the fun factor goes down. Some items are very expensive (accentuating).

Conclusion: I think this game is really great and will stay for a long time on my device to be enjoyed, and I have some patience, so I will grind...

Did I mention that I find Agent Dash very entertaining?
