Beautiful (Castlevania inspired, I dare say?) endless runner.

It's a bummer that the female character can only be unlocked via IAP :/

Me neither. Bought it at launch, loved the visuals, bought the female character immediately, but I simply couldn't enjoy it for more than one hour.

Anyway it's a beautiful runner and for free everyone should give it a shot.

if coin gain wasn't so slow I'd still be playing this one... it's very good, but in about 3 hours i don't think i got more than 10k coins...

Certainly worth getting and playing, though it does run out of steam for me, too.

This is still one of my favorite runners, even though there are a lot of titles that surpass it already.

Visuals and animation are top notch, and the Multiplayer is some good fun too, but at this point im not sure how many still play online.

The coin gain is a bit slow, but you can try it with having coin doubler power up activated each run. I've unlocked everything for the vampire guy as i like the infinite flight (on transform) and his landing animations (while human) look really awesome. Almost have everything for the Wolf too, but didnt push through to 100% completion.

What this game needs (in my opinion of course) is a remake of the quest system to make it more "doable." As they are right now, some almost impossible to complete without spending too much time, just to clear 1 quest (in later quests this is common).

What makes JJ, Tiny Wings and Punch Quest missions the best of its kind is how accessible they can be, and how we can actually do these missions in a couple runs so we have more to work for.

I got this last year when it was free. It looks cool but the 178mb download for a runner that looks like an snes game just seemed wrong.

This game has more details than the SNES comparison. And, the comparison was actually for the SotN, in which case the models in Darkness Rush still has more detail.

But for the point about the file size, it is actually 366 mb installed and is the main weakness of this title.
