First of all, quirky art style and theme wont appeal to everyone thats for sure.

Gameplay is like little runner, action heroes, and the like. Basically your hero keeps running forward and your job is simply to tap whenever an obstacle appears. Tapping would make the hero do a seemingly random selection of action, example, when a man appear in front of him, he might kick him away, simply jump over him, or dance with him.
Its a really simple concept, but can be fun when done right.

First of all there seems to be 2 game modes. The default one would be the stage mode, where you have a certain amount of time to run to the goal at the end of the stage, successfully navigating the stage would earn bonus time, while tripping over obstacle would cost you time.
At the goal theres a very short simple guitar hero like rhythm game for bonus points.
There are 9 of these stages that can be unlocked when you finish the previous ones. Each of these stages have varied themes, from the city to the moon, to a prehistoric jungle.
Finishing stage 9 will unlock the endless mode where you just run for as long as you can.

What I like is the zany animation of the hero, I wont list everything, but its pretty cool really. Gameplay is quite fun, although very short.

What I dont like is the lack of online score, or achievements. Adding those would really help a short game such as this get some more play time. Otherwise you may be bored after beating all 9 stages.

Overall I cannot complain more, hey the game only cost 2 bucks, so I wasnt expecting a drawn out adventure. Its meant to be a 1 button quick casual distraction, and its a really good one at that, easily worth the 2 bucks.

You have 9 different races with different obstacles and an endless mode. Note that you have to unlock them and the Endless mode is the last one.

This game is all about tapping and good timing that can be GREAT, GOOD or MISS. You run against time and there is a local high score for each game.

So far I like it and there’s a chance you’ll like it too if you enjoy games like Canabalt.

CONS

- loading time it longer than expected in a 3GS (replay a game does not require loading though)
- there is no online integration; KONAMI should consider OpenFeint or Plus+

Gameplay consists of just a tapping in time to the rhythm to doge obstacles, kind of Dance Dance mixed with Canabalt. At the end of each stage you play a short rythm game for extra points.

Just got it and there are 9 levels with only the 1st unlocked, beating it lets you play the 2nd stage, then beating the 2nd unlocks the 3rd, etc...

Top ten highscores are kept for each stage.

Once you beat all the stages an endless mode is unlocked.

There is no multiplayer, unlike the wiiware version which will have it.
