Ratings and Reviews
Potential, BUT . . .
I wanted to like this game. I really did. I have fond memories of the Atari original and still play it on occasion. But there are fundamental problems, and at its heart this game is little more than a cash grab. The game is nearly unplayable (for more than about 2 minute per game) without "upgrades" which are ludicrously expensive in game currency. However these upgrades are one-use only (i.e. 3,000 coins buys you 3 lives, but after you die three times you are out your coin). Of course, you can buy coin for real money, but again, once it's gone, it's gone.
Graphics are good and whimsical, but gameplay is too complex. Too many different actions (i.e. swipe left then immediately swipe right, then tap but don't swipe in the same two seconds) are required too close together to really be fun.
Frustrating, and not for the right reasons
Very tough game, and not in a fun way. The game only registers your finger on the screen about 75% of the time. I've died countless times just because it doesn't register that I'm tapping. Very frustrating and greatly detracts from the game. I gave three stars because it's cute, well-animated, and allows you to play as a girl or a guy. Just wish it was more playable.
Looks like an ok game and the graphics are ok. But I couldn't get past the tutorial stage where they tell you about 10 different moves at once, expecting you'll remember them all right away. Would be nice if the game introduced them to you move spread out. Master one or two moves first, then introduce more.
