Necrorun review (iPod/iPhone)February 5, 2012
♫ “The death of one is a tragedy
The death of a million is just a statistic”
10 word description: Play as Death on its horse, reaping everything in your path. (Lifted verbatim from app store description. I know it’s 11 words… again ;-)
10 word review: Dark, addictive, eerily beautiful endless runner with great permanent upgrades.
You will like this if you enjoy: Endless runners with a dark/gothic theme. Spooky Hoofs is very similar in atmosphere and execution. Endless games with unlockable permanent upgrades and score boosters.
The good news: Great style, graphics, music, sounds, controls, combo system, unlockable powers. And no IAPs – how absolutely bloody fantastic; there is still a very small corner of the world where people aren’t stupid. I’ll just mention the music again, because it’s great.
The bad news: You have to play the game. You can’t buy your way to success. All you IAP monkeys will have to find something else not to play. Aw, what a shame.
Arcadelife verdict: I could play this all night. The unlockable powers not only add great replay incentive but also prove to be invaluable as soon as you try stage 2 and the ****ing archers start appearing! If you like endless runners, particularly ones with a bit of depth in the upgrade department and a rather cool theme – you play as Death on a horse, killing everything including trees – go get this right now.
