What possible advertising route could this game be taking? One wonders.

So, watching Sanuku's vid, this game commits the following sins:
- The gameplay is repetitive and unvaried
- It takes an uninspired and objectifying and approach to character design and marketing and
- Worse than any of the above, it is an endless runner.

Nice blow!

Ahem, pass. Generic and boring complete with repetitive butt-rock.

I agree with the first 2, but being an endless runner doesnt make it automatically bad. Also, this doesnt look endless at all.

Other than that, I guess I'll stick to Into the Dead and Blood Roofs for my behind the back endless running with shooting involved.

Tap to shoot. Auto-aimed though.
