In fact yes. I'm a full time student like many others here, so my time is limited. To maintain my 940ish place in the world on the GC leaderboards (out of 160+ mil) I only put time into games that reward me for playing. Same concept for ps3 trophies and Xbox gamer score. No GC support = no thanks.

Been downloading these Runner titles ever since Subway Surfer, so I'll definitely give this one a go

Pretty good. Competent runner, but the shooting mechanic just doesn't do it for me. Leveling up takes too long and the alternate characters are too expensive. Played for a bit then uninstalled (I lost interest pretty quickly). Still worth a download if you're a fan of the genre, as the graphics are good and the controls are responsive.

It is a vicious cycle, but it holds truth, and it doesnt look like it'll die down yet.
I definitely agree with that and believe it to be true. I am one of those people myself. Somehow I always find another one that adds exciting game play mechanics and I pop for it, too!

Haha.. The first runner I got into was Jetpack Joyride. Subway Surfer was the second..and like you, after Subway Surfer, I dab in new endless runners from time to time.

I ended up deleting yesterday..but it was really fun while it lasted. Deleted mostly cause I'm playing Pitfall now too..and don't have time to do both.

Oh dood i know what you mean. Im playing Pitfall and Run N Gun back to back too, coz Pitfall doesnt have cloud saving, and I decided to play Pitfall on the big screen. Time isnt enough to play 2 grindfest runner titles.

I am not a huge fan of iap infested endless runners, however this one is certainly worth the download. It plays as smooth as temple run and is very similar in how it handles. The shooting aspect gives it that extra something needed to differentiate it from host of other endless runners. It is a grindfest though!

Hopefully enjoying yourself becomes a priority at some stage. With that said, game seems fun.

Enjoying this one so far, although there are a few bugs.

Does anyone know how to get the crowns mentioned in some missions?
