Now this one looks like it could be cool, was hoping it was level based but it looks endless. Shame about the freemium aspects, Oh well.

I tried this one today.
It's a good game, plays very well & has intuitive controls.
Once you start, you're getting that one more try vibe.
I like it so far.

But like Son of Anarchy said, it would be nice to have the option to get rid of the ads.

Yeah I quite liked this as well. Sort of Crossy road like but in the theme of escaping some military base in the artic. It's not an A+ quality game but it is a likeable one.

I can't stand endless runners, but this game has a certain charm to it. Like someone else said... It's like Croats roads but with prisoners escaping so it's not just endless tapping, but strategy and patience. It's different so definitely worth giving a try.

The first play through there are a good amount of coins and keys. After that you have to buy keys if you want them as they are no longer on the level. So while you can grind for coins (mostly by taking out guards for a whopping 2 coins each) you can't grind for keys. And there are locks everywhere. Either a terrible bug or blatant money grab. Shame to because the underlying game is a likable causal stealth.

I always thought the whole key thing was confusing and unnecessary. However, you can also buy keys with coins, so technically you can still grind for keys and don't have to spend actual money on them. I believe this is something they changed with an update, and previously the keys were IAP only, but I could be wrong.

Also, I don't think the keys totally disappear from the play field. I'm still coming across them, though maybe not as frequently as I did at first.
