Relic Rush review (iOS / Universal)February 18, 2013
10 word description: One touch auto-runner platform adventure. 100 levels, 5 worlds.
10 word review: Very retro graphics and sounds, with a fairly tough challenge.
You will like this if you enjoy: Auto-runner platform games. Retro pixel-art.
The good news: Simple touch-to-stop control system – very reliable. Deceptively basic level designs that are a positive point in this game. It’s not easy – each set of 8 levels must be completed fairly flawlessly to get the top rating. yes, I see that as a positive thing.
The bad news: Yet more retro styling and extreme pixel art. Still, it’s a million times preferable to consumable IAPs. No Game Center.
Arcadelife verdict: Pretty good. It had me very addicted for a lot longer than I needed to formulate an opinion for this review. I really like the way that you have to complete a sequence of 8 levels for each of the 4 trophies in every world. It adds a load of tension as you clear the first 7 and then have to try the 8th knowing that it all depends on a perfect, fast run. Well done, you held my attention for a lot longer than most of the games I see.
