Because it's not generic, or endless, and only just about a runner. I hate the predominance of two genres (match 3 and runners) on ios as much as anyone else, but this is a beautiful game, which, once you realise to tap and not hold in the direction you want to go, becomes a really gorgeous chase through lovely primary coloured climes, in which the camera pans in and out as the levels swell up and contract. Your hoverboarder can spin onto the ceiling, careen around lasers, duneworms, killer whales, go up jumps and on ramps... There are a lot of forgettable games on the appstore, but this is not one of them.

Thanks for correcting me on my prejudices regarding this game. I will reconsider if this game is for me.
Kind regards

You're welcome. Regarding the 4 stars (only) in the TA-Review: in the meantime there has been added content to the game in some updates.

Games better than the standard type if this game.not endless as it has levels to complete. I gave this on iOS now just need for the add free price to drop on Android and I'll get it on there as well.
