Today’s App Review is St. Patrick’s Runner by MTree Enterprises LLC. First of all Dóchas linn Naomh Pádraig (Happy St. Patrick’s Day) Searching around for an appropriate App which didn’t depict all Irish as drunks – seriously App developers we aren’t I came across this pretty cool game. St. Patrick’s Day runner takes on the same kind of form as the traditional Mario games which have been remade in several forms for iOS devices including the popular Lep’s World.
The aim of the game is to get your runner to grab as many shamrocks as possible without falling or tripping over obstacles and you also have to avoid snakes and flying unicorns. As an Irish person I hate to say it but I LOVE this game filled with rainbows and a skinny leprechaun and all things mythical. The only complaint is that I was so distracted by the pretty unicorns that I kept dying…awww! The graphics are basic but beautiful and there is nothing much to the game other than the one continious level so not extra challenges but it is fairly fun and challenging. The little guy runs pretty fast too so you can’t take it easy.
The only complaint I have is that the ads pop up very regularly on the free version and are quite irritating especially when your little character keeps running while you are trying to x out of the ad. Sad to say that the ads were the cause of many Leprechaun casualties but there is an option to get rid of them with an in-app purchase.
If you’re a fan of games like Mario give this one a go although graphics and game play wise Lep’s world has my vote in terms of quality and stability.
For the day that’s in it you can download it the App from HERE.
