If you’re a fan of endless running games, you’re well aware of the fact that there are plenty of them available on the App Store. Most of them are fun to play and offer a great way to kill a bit of time. Run Run Thief is a brand-new game by Taras Gasparin that offers challenging gameplay and a simple interface.
As someone who believes that graphics and flashy animations aren’t everything when it comes to an iPhone or iPad game, I was really pleased to see that Run Run Thief focuses mostly on the overall gameplay experience.
Run Run Thief is an endless runner that requires players to jump over obstacles in order to reach the highest score possible. Naturally this sounds like a simple task, but I can honestly say that Run Run Thief is anything but an easy game to play.
Why is that? Well, for starters, Thief doesn’t jump very high. This means that you’ll more than likely it obstacles while jumping. It’ll take a bit of time to get use to figuring out when to jump so you can clear obstacles easily, but once you have the hang of it it’s a very fun game to play.
Also, as you travel further along in Run Run Thief, you’ll encounter boxes that allow Thief to improve his jumping skills in order to clear larger obstacles. The boxes are tricky to get to, though, because they’re usually located right before another obstacle.
It’s worth mentioning that Run Run Thief features a variety of boxes for players to collect. White boxes give Thief one extra jump, blue boxes give him two extra jobs, and red boxes give him one mega jump.
The tricky part about this is not only do you have to time the first jump correctly, but you have to make sure you time your other jumps perfectly while Thief is in the air. All in all, it just takes a bit of practice.
When it comes to in-app purchases, Run Run Thief doesn’t require players to purchase anything except the option to remove ads.
Finally, I do want to point out the fact that Run Run Thief supports Game Center for online leader boards, which makes it fun to challenge both friends and strangers alike. Personally I enjoy competing for high scores in games, especially endless runners like Run Run Thief.
Overall, Run Run Thief is a simple endless running game for iPhone and iPad that offers challenging gameplay. From great background music to a simple concept that provides players with endless entertainment, Run Run Thief is a brand-new game that definitely shouldn’t be overlooked.
Run Run Thief requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus.
