I have to admit i saw this coming, but still got it day one... Pretty good futuristic twist on the behind-the-back-runner genre.

I skipped this one after reading how some of the sections are frustrating to pass through, but for free, I'll give it a go!

^^ LOL.

Decent game. I liked the wall and ceiling spin on the genre (Axon Runners does it better, but is also much harder). In the end though, it's pretty repetative with little change as you progress through the game compared to others that mix in different environments/obstacles.

Still worth a look for fans of BTB runners.

It's reasonably long insofar as how far a given player is likely to go compared to most runners, so I wouldn't describe it as frustrating in the context of the genre. An earlier update made the loop mechanic easier to deal with and I think that's where it may have been frustrating at one point.

And the update also made the game a lot more unpredictable with more segments than it first had, where you just run into the same obstacles a couple times before you reach the next areas. It's just better now, but its still a tough grind outside of IAP.
