Unicorn Rush review (iOS / Universal)

June 23, 2012

“Follow that unicorn on the road to love”

10 word description: Take flight through the night skies as a magical unicorn. (Taken from app store description).

10 word review: Not at all like Robot Unicorn Attack. Ok, it is.

You will like this if you enjoy: Robot Unicorn Attack. Endless runners. Endless runners that also have a bunch of challenge stages with 5-star ratings.

The good news: Very pretty. Controls are spot on, although it would have been hard to mess them up in this type of game. In a direct comparison, I prefer this to RUA for several reasons, mostly the additional challenge levels, the upgrades and the graphics. Progressive quests add to the challenge.

The bad news: IAPs and Facebook postings to earn in-game coins. Please get a life.

Arcadelife verdict: Nice game. Plenty of challenge and a fair amount of decent upgrades and playable unicorns to unlock without touching the IAPs. It’s obviously going to be directly compared with Robot Unicorn Attack and I think it comes away from that comparison very favourably.
