Flavorful but needs work
Infinite runner games are a dime a dozen these days, and its hard to find a lot to recommend this one. The flavor is spot-on, and the announcer is great to listen to, but the game quickly loses its sheen.
The biggest problem is a lack of variety. Two backgrounds, alternating in the same order, makes the player painfully aware of how his current run stacks up to previous ones. Two power ups feel limiting and dull. Upgrades are similarly utilitarian, with no one-use items. It's like they tried to make a startup product, some sort of minimum viable alpha build, and shoved it out the door figuring that they could always add content later. Even the otherwise superb voice work could have used about three times as many snippets.
The difficulty curve is rough as well. You're limited to one life, period, and spend a long time in areas that quickly become routine before the challenge ramps up abruptly, leading to 10 or 20 seconds of good gameplay before your untimely demise. Multiple hit points or a more varied difficulty curve would solve this problem.
All the same, the core mechanics are good and the animation is beautiful. It's a perfect "heartbreaker" game--good enough to want to keep playing, but flawed enough to be frustrating.
Showing my support for uber in hopes for more Monday night combat!
I love super Monday night combat and though the gameplay in this app is whatevs, the art style and the familiar voice overs set in the MNC universe were enough to get me to check it out.
You could definitely use a slightly less boring title screen and maybe display tips while playing.
Definitely has potential to be something great so i will keep an eye on it. Now make a mobile version of smnc for the fans!
Some fun, but needs an update.
I know this just came out, but I've already maxed out everything in just a few days. Also there is no randomization, and the two power ups give you a much different experience, which can make it easier or harder depending on how you play. For people trying to get a high score (I'm 14th all-time as I write this) it can get annoying. A quick update to make it more enjoyable is needed.
