Ok, went ahead and picked this one up and it's pretty fun, a nice blend of runner/physics platformer.

That said, I just had a discussion in the Day of the Viking thread in which I defended their use of a coin doubler. This game, however, has done things wrong, IMO.

You can buy some items and upgrades with in game currency. And you can buy in game currency with real money. I don't have a problem with any of that.

What I DO have a problem with is that the game offers "continue potions" only for real money. In other words, pay to win as there doesn't seem to be anyway to earn them otherwise.

On top of that, GameCenter isn't even set up with leaderboards and achievements.

Negatives aside, is the actual gameplay worth a buck for a runner fan? I'm on the fence.

"Finishing off" all my little games first before diving into the next big adventure.

This is a cute one. Runs buttersmooth, random levels and has that charming irish soundtrack i'm gonna whistle tomorrow, if i don't stop playing now.

Unfortunatelly, as rich mentioned, pay to win. Minus two stars. An instant replay button is also missing. Are the "coming soon" missions comin?

I'm in a good mood, i got this for free and...i'm whistling already - 4 stars.

Edit: Gamecenter is working
