PlayStation Mobile has brought a new endless runner Run Sackboy! Run!, which stars the knitted hero Sackboy from the LittleBigPlanet series, to New Zealand App Store before any other markets in soft launch phase.
Run Sackboy! Run! sees the knitted figure running away from the giant mouth of the Negativitron in a dangerous adventure. The game features the similar controls as most runner. It is all about tapping, holding, swiping or combination of them to jump and dash. Simple as that sounds, the journey is bumpy due to the various hazards alongside.
What’s special about Run Sackboy! Run! is that it integrates a heavy dose of platforming action to the endless running mechanics. There are multi-platforms in every themed environments for you to jump in-between, collecting bubbles, stickers or boosters and evading obstacles like enemies, pink goo and electrified board. Those platforms plus the randomly generated layout make every run a different experience.
Run Sackboy! Run! is a fun and solid endless runner with typical designs like power-ups and upgrades and special platformer elements to make the run dynamic. It is free-to-play with in-app purchases. But it does not have the timer to spoil your fun when you’d like one more run.
It is soft-launched in New Zealand and set to come out worldwide next month on iOS, Android and Vita.[NZ App Store]
