This is actually a decent game for .99 but maybe too simple for its own good. It plays like Canabalt but on a state board.

Graphics are average but the game plays well. I was unable to hear any sounds, so I can't say if there are any or not. The game keeps track of how many buildings you cross. I would rather it kept track of distance but that isn't a big deal. There are three difficulty levels but no online leaderboards.

They made it up, just like the 5 "reviews" in the appstore.

How do they get away with copyright infringement? This is nothing like the NES game i remember from back in the day.
