Love the visuals, let's hope this isn't another runner destroyed by IAP

Just tried it out, visually impressive, but most of the movie tie-in games are. Already i see you can buy power ups, how soon you'll hit the point where you require them, who knows?

the visuals artwork is just too beautiful for this game to be "just" a runner

This is more than just another runner. It's level based, so it's more of a platformer IMO with an auto-run feature. The level design is excellent in the handful of levels I've played so far. You have to avoid traps and other creatures during your run and also you have to be "sneaky". There are bells and pots and pans that will make noise if you hit them and that goes toward the usual 3 star (lightbulb) system. There's an IAP to remove ads for .99, but I have yet to see one. As far as I know, there's no timers or "energy". You have 2 currencies, cogs and cheese, but it looks like you can play through the game without having to buy anything. Cheese is used more for continues and premium outfits. Like I said, I've only played a few levels, but it's definitely worth a shot. Especially if your into platformers or runners. It's pretty cool so far IMO.

Runner + FTP + Movie promotion = awesome? Yeah. I'm pleasantly surprised by this one
