Beautiful port - and the free-to-pay is done well
The porting job done here is fabulous - it's a pixel perfect port of Runner2. Certain things, like the staircases, are made easier on here because they would be much more difficult with the touchscreen controls, but I don't understand why people see this as a bad thing - if anything, it proves how much Gaijin put into this port to make it really good and easy to get into. The in-app purchases are really well done, too - all of the content aside from the main storyline is locked with gold instead of "key paths" or whatever, and gold can either be earned at a decent rate from the levels or bought in large booster packs. I'm only writing this review because I think this game needs a lot more attention so that Gaijin will update it - it's missing the last two areas! If you've completed the Supernature, you can watch the Mounting Sadds' intro cutscene in the Videos section; they were intending to add it, but the app apparently never got enough attention or following. Either that or they are having a really bad time porting the levels, but I doubt it - I only found this amazing port by sheer luck. If anybody who plays games reads this, DOWNLOAD THIS APP! And if Gaijin reads this, ADD THE LAST TWO AREAS! Please :/
Really shines on the 6 Plus just make sure to switch to the alternate controls
As a huge fan of this game on consoles I was curious how this could work on iOS and the answer is brilliantly the presentation, graphics, fluid framerate and addicting rhythmic gameplay are all intact, the biggest problem however is that the swipe controls feel like they're going to work fine until you get to the first boss which requires split second inputs between jumping and sliding which swipe controls simply can't handle luckily the touch panel scheme works out perfectly especially on the Plus' bigger screen feeling just as responsive if not more so than playing on a controller.
I found this game by accident, and I'm very surprised that this game isn't more popular. It is very well constructed platformer with tons of content to last you for hours and hours! Achievements, 3 difficulty levels, and you can get perfect on every level, and even perfect+, and that makes this games replayability very high. Plus different characters you can buy with tons of different costumes, that you buy with in game gold, so no lame micro transactions! Although it does lag sometimes when you have other apps open, but this is really not a huge deal, just close the other apps or restart the game. Overall I am very pleased with this game!
