Catch endless runner Sonic Dash in motion


3:00 AM on 03.07.2013



After seeing what Ubisoft and pastagames were able to do with Rayman Jungle Run, I foolishly got my hopes up for Sonic Dash. This new endless runner, developed by Hardlight for iOS, should be up on the App Store in most regions by the time you read this. Before buying, become an informed consumer by arming yourself with a video demonstration.

The description given in the announcement was not inaccurate, but the end result is also not what I was picturing. That's not to say Sonic Dash is bad or that it will sell badly, for that matter -- more like, "Huh. They sure are playing it safe." Little bit disappointing.

Sci-fi 2D platformer Orphan looks like a mashup of Limbo and H.G. Wells

Let’s go ahead and get this out of the way, shall we? Yes, Orphan immediately brings to mind Limbo. That’s perfectly fine by me, though. I have enough room left in my heart for more games that can leverage the de...more
