I wasn't impressed at first because I thought you have to upgrade the boosts with the collected coins (and the upgrades are super expensive). But I started to really like this when I realised you can also upgrade the boosts by completing missions and level up. The coins can be used to select up to 3 boosts you can start with. Overall a nice endless runner and well worth the buck I spent for it. But it brings nothing new to the table. Recommended if you're into runners.

Game Center: sink_or_swim

Thanks. The gameplay is quite different from the first one.

Yeah, passed on this at release because it seemed like the consensus was that it really was freemium, pushing IAPs for upgrades, etc. and that the first one was much better.

But for free, I'll give it a try - particularly with sink_or_swim's note that missions can help earn those upgrades as well.

It's good, but i was disappointed on release that it wasnt how the first one was, but instead, more of the same of other typical side scrolling runners. The first one had the unique mechanic of going upside down while the game felt something between a runner and a platformer.

After playing a bit, I agree with this. The gravity flips in the first game are what set it apart. Have no idea why they dropped that mechanic all together. It's just not Gravity Guy without it.

The "lifts" are just another form of jumping. It's decent but disappointing and glad I didn't pick it up on release.
