So how many of you gamers out there play games on a mobile device? Do you find yourself downloading the game, playing it for about an hour, and then un-installing it because of how extremely boring it was? Well, I am on a quest to find games for your mobile device that will keep your attention and your interest for more than an hour!
The first game in the hot seat today is called X-Runner! X-Runner is a runner type game where you roller blade forward in one level by tilting the phone side to side to see how far you can make it! But of course you have to be able to complete mini-quests, dodge a bunch of boxes and learn how to jump from one side of the screen to the other without falling off the map! I know this may seem a lot like any other runner title but I can tell you right now what makes it stand out from every other game; the graphics!
X-Runner, the ultimate time consuming runner title, takes place in space. You start off your run by approaching a stunning visual picture of Earth, then about 1,500 meters in you approach a tunnel to go through. After than tunnel, you come out into another beautiful background of another planet! There was many times that I crashed into boxes on the road because I was staring off into the background and not even paying attention to my player.
The second thing that makes this title stand out is the power-ups and upgrades you can purchase for your character. Throughout the run, you have the chance to find power-ups like becoming invisible, a coin magnet, or invincible! Each power up has it’s own perk to it, so I will have to let you try them out for yourself! But eventually throughout your run you will find lines of coins to pick up that you can use to purchase upgrades in the shop that will increase the amount of time that each power up lasts or an increase of each coins worth!
The only downfall that I have with this title is that your character level does not increase. You can do all the quests that you want that the game offers, but the only thing you will achieve are quest achievements, which give you absolutely nothing! But don’t let that bog you down!
So if you are into these kind of games on your mobile device, I highly suggest that you give X-Runner a try! I have had it on my phone for over a week now and I am still not bored with it yet! If you do decide to listen to my suggestion and try it out, leave me a comment below in the comment section to tell me what your greatest run distance is! I would love to compete with a honest gamer!
