10 word description: One-touch auto-flier (with jetpack). Avoid hazards, collect characters.

10 word review: Captivating casual game. Beautiful, clean visuals. Outstanding soundtrack. Highly recommended.

You will like this if you enjoy: Auto-runners. Endless distance games.

The good news: Everything about this game is eminently likeable. The addiction comes from always knowing that you can beat your last run and never feeling frustrated. Very well designed and wonderfully presented.

The bad news: Couple of small things: The pause button (bottom left) is right where I like to use my thumb to control the game; it’s being moved in an update. No iCloud sync.

Arcadelife verdict: Like Jetpack Joyride, reimagined in a nu-retro style without the IAP bullshit. The control method is simple and immediately familiar. I’m having a lot of fun with this game and I suggest that you go and get it if you haven’t already done so.
