Action Hero saves the day!

In a normal, boring day, I lie around and do nothing. Then, I hear it. Gangsters are invading the train! I quickly take out my iPod Touch, and I launch Action Hero. Action Hero saved my boring day! Hooray!

Sound: 4 Stars
Awesome sound effects help me own some gangsters. The music is VERY hard to hear (Or is there music? I think I hear something...)

Graphics: 4.5 Stars
Pixelized comic graphics lets Action Hero run and avoid obstacles in style.

Controls: 5 Stars
Very good controls that are really responsive gives Action Hero better reflexes.

Gameplay: 3.5 Stars
Action Hero starts out too slow and very slow paced. Running with Action Hero is a breeze, until the gangsters get reinforcements and new obstacles come. The gameplay is very unbalanced

Replayibility: 4 Stars
Fast loading times lets you reach and help Action Hero fast. You could play this forever. The game never ends... (Unless Action Hero fails, and dies)

Overall: 4 Stars
Gameplay balance needs to be adjusted. It also need in-game high scores, not a link to a website. It is worth $0.99. Come on, just buy it, ACTION HERO NEEDS YOUR HELP!!! Good game, addictive, and uses your reflexes

If you want to pass a few minutes of the day in a fast-paced jump and attack style game, this is the best 99cents you'll spend. Graphics are stunning, reminding you of Golden Age comic book panels. There are nice touch's like ambient background noises that match the subtle changes to the linear background imagery. The controls are dead on simple: Swipe up on the left-hand portion of the screen to jump; swipe down to crouch and slide under oncoming objects. Press the lower-right side of you screen to attack. The game increase it's complexity as you travel down the endless amount of rail cars, which change in style and challenge as you go. Not sure where the end of the train is, as you cannot die and resume from where you died. You die, you die. Start over. This is why I say this is a great way to pass a few minutes, as you can quickly get frustrated by starting from the beginning over and over. But even so, I keep coming back to try the challenge over and over again.

Rather basic but still quite enjoyable

Like all Donut games, Action Hero has a very simple premise but can become quite addictive as you chase after that elusive high score! It's an endless runner type game where you also punch bad guys and either punch away or evade bottles and TNT sticks they throw at you. The comic book-style art and 'BANG!' and 'POW!' onomatopoeia makes the game feel like a comic. Action Hero is rather basic and may not stay installed on your device but the simplicity is part of its charm: there are no power-ups and other trinkets to fiddle with – just dodge obstructions, punch bad guys, and get the highest score possible. And in that sense, it succeeds! Great, fun little game.
