With that title not really... But the screenshots are a little vague. Is that a side-scrolling runner but posted and they added text in portrait mode? Are the other screenshots ingame sreenies? Or is it that side-scrolling one?

Ah... it's behind the back. That one image that has the close tag lacking a bracket is this:



Im seeing multiple lanes, so im assuming (and at the same time, hoping) no-tilt.

Well, I'm downloading so I'll put some initial imps. here

Edit: Ok, so as soon as you enter, you are met with a download screen. This file is at 100MB, so be warned

This is an endless runner akin to Subway Surfers. It is based behind you initialy, but it does go to side-on view later on, akin to Pitfall. There is also a tilting section where you tilt your device to collect coins. Occasionally you'll have fights with villains, but they're pretty easy. After a while, you'll end up being transported to a new area. For example, the neighourhood where Gru's house is, were you'll have cars driving directly at you

With the shop, you can buy and upgrade power-ups. The coin doubler costs $5. If you want to get new costumes, you have to download them. Once you do, there are two coin costumes and 2 premium currency costumes. There is a second currency available, but it only unlocks a premium power-up and to revive your minion after it dies
