"A fast, well-designed endless runner"
"A fresh feel, like a hardcore twist on Halfbrick's classic, Monster Dash."
– Touch Arcade, 4/5
"Pixel perfect (circa 1989), and the off-colour monochrome is spot on."
– Pocket Gamer, 7/10

Love but please read my recommendation

Fun simple and fairly addictive. My only issue is the fact it’s only one command. Please give us a button for the whip it can still only work when mid jump but It’s a little glitchy as is.... sometimes I try to tap too fast during a higher jump and the whip doesn’t work... other times I let go of the jump to hit it again for the whip and fall short of the jump...even when it’s a small space and high jump shouldn’t be needed.

One of the best runners ever with a terrible bug

This game is extremely fun and addicting. The gameboy visuals are brilliant, and the gameplay is top notch. The soundtrack is a MASTERPIECE, Which brings me to the one HUGE problem. The games audio refuses to play through Bluetooth! I use Bluetooth headphones, so I can't enjoy with wonderful tunes the way I want! Please fix this ASAP. Thank you so much.

Very fun

This is the most fun runner that exists on the App Store. You have the option of playing as Jack B. Nimble or Jack O Lantern. I personally prefer Jack O Lantern.
Your goal is to survive as long as possible while trying to hit as many candlesticks as possible.
It will instantly bring back memories of Castlevania.
