It's good, but it's not one of those games that'll keep you occupied for hours. It's a pick-up-n-play so you play for 5 minutes, and later you'll play for another 5. It's fun, but like all high score-based games, it gets repetitive.

If you're looking for a game to actually spend time on, then no. But if you're looking to spend $0.99 on something new and different, definitely.

Think Canabalt, but then incorporate managing killing monsters at the same time. Sounds tough, right? Well, yes. But it's also quite intensely satisfying, kind of.

It has an initial "Awesome, this is so fun!" feel to it. But then when you actually wanna start getting high scores, you'll find yourself frustrated by the blurry screens at higher speeds and faulty enemy spawning system (sometimes at the end of platforms, making it hard to jump with comfortable timing). Also, dying and restarting means going slow again, and although going REALLY fast can be an eye-sore, the slow start can be - even more so - boring.

Overall, however, it's definitely worth the $.99 purchase as it IS made by Halfbrick and they're known to continually produce updates to better their games (ei. Fruit Ninja).

So although it may not be that good NOW, it will get better and all problems will be solved in time. Support the developers, buy it trusting they'll make it something REALLY great!

It's a fun time killer but it can really piss me off sometimes when I get killed by something totally unavoidable like a monster popping up as you run over it

I've bought alot of games, e.g. angry birds, doodle jump, alot of gameloft games,
doodle army, minigore etc.

But nothing is as addicting as monster dash, amazing.
