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.

Why the hell doesn't the US ever get these "soft launch" games?

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.
