Ratings and Reviews
Next Level Motivation!
OK, so I'm going to admit I love to jog upfront. This game, though, has been helping me get into much better shape. Other running apps I've tried so far haven't compelled me to run as this one has. Where I'll often slow to a walk, I keep pushing to fell a beast or troll or keep someone alive. Supplying an accuracy percentage has me playing over and over for 100%. Randomized encounters keep each run new, even only playing Q1. Character customization is great for rest time. I could go on and on!
I have seen what others write about, though. Q2 is better than Q1 in spite of a few small flaws (one segment doesn’t tell you when to return to regular pace and there are some continuity errors in the dialogue), but Q3 has poor audio quality and doesn’t feel as well written as Q1 or Q2. As well, while the option for pics with your avatar is neat, it’s a running game and I would like more reason to keep at it (more achievements or slayer goals or Athletomancy, for example) while I wait for Q4. I still love the game and share about it and encourage my nerdy friends to try it, but at least I can hope for better sound quality in an update and/or a better prepared Q4.
LOVED the Halloween event!
Make running fun for a non runner
So I’ve always hated running. But it’s easier for me to run than be stuck inside exercising. Usually on a run I get halfway and then feel like I can’t make it. This game has helped me to want to run! And it keeps my mind distracted from the agony of running because I want to unlock the achievements and discover different aspects of the story. It really is a great app!
The only thing I hope they could add to an update is more ways to use the “gold” you earn during a run for more than just clothes for the avatar and potions what not. Something a little more to feel rewarded after the run for fun. BUT! I can’t really complain too much because it is a free app and the story line is fun too. I love that when I go for longer runs I experience new things which help the “same” quests to be a little different and still fun. Can’t wait for more quests to come. All in all definitely worth it!
Not fully compatible with Apple Watch
I was super excited to use this app to help me get back into a regular running routine. Simply playing around with designing my character was fun enough for me to get motivated to start running again, but it was a huge disappointment when I realized you can’t complete the quests by running with only my Apple Watch - you have to have my phone on me while you’re running. You can sync your daily steps via Health app to collect extra ‘loot’, but there is no way to play the actual running quests with just the watch. The whole reason I got an Apple Watch was so I could track runs/have music without my phone, so as amazing as this app looks, having to bring my phone with me on runs is a dealbreaker. Come on devs, it’s not 2015. Two stars because this app has huge potential, but there’s just no excuse to not be standalone on the Apple Watch since the majority of running apps are these days.
