Line Runner Review

On December 4, 2012

Ahoy mateys! The sprawling and rolling blue tides of the seas can be so beautiful it can bring tear to me eyes. But I must confess, there are days when I cannot stand being stuck in the middle of the sea. The good old Jolly Rogers has some plenty cool things to do like making prisoners walk the plank. But sometimes I just want to unwind. And to do that, I hit me room and do something that I have been doing since I was in Nursery Pirate school, doodling. I drew stick figures left and right when I was younger. I drew them on tables, chairs, wooden leg pegs and even on pirate flags. And now to unwind all that pirating stress I still doodle. This fun hobby of mine has been taken to another level with the mobile game app Line Runner. I have been playing it for a while now. Here is my review to show you why I like this mobile game app a lot.

Running the Line with the Line Runner

All right land lubbers, you of all people should know what running is all about. But to make this game review much easier for you to understand, I will tell you first what the game is all about. The mobile game app Line Runner is a running game on your mobile device. The protagonist is a line man or a stick figure, the one that you like to draw on tables and notebooks. The line man or the stick figure will be running towards the right side of your mobile device’s screen. The point of the game is to run as far as you can. The farther you reach the higher you score is. But it will not be very easy all the time. There will be obstacles that will try to stop your running. As the player, it is your role to guide the line man out of harms’ way. You can help him jump and roll or what not to survive any obstacle. The mobile game app may seem so simple but in reality it is the simple games that really succeed.

The Visual Hook

Each game may fall under the same category or genre. Line Runner falls under the endless runner came type. But what set these games apart from one another is their visual hook. Line Runner is very interesting since it makes use of the stick figure as the visual hook. There is no big amount of emotional investment to the game since there is no strong plot to latch on to. But that is just fine. The weird visual of having a line man move about a graphing notebook is already cool as it is. This makes it easy for you to appreciate the game even more.

Controlling the Line Man

The game is already very simple visually. The game play is as simple as well. To jump over hurdles, all you have to do is to tap the lower right corner of the mobile device screen. To roll under obstacles, you can tap the lower left. The game controls are very basic. It is easy enough so that it will not be cumbersome to think of the controls while you are having fun. This game is very friendly for players like you. It is designed in a simple way and crafted in the same manner as well.

Tracks for Line Runner

The game maybe very simple. But the developers made sure that there are more reasons for a person to come back and play the game. A good example is the tracks. The tracks are cool. There are about ten stages where you can show off where you got.

Line Runner is a simple game that gives simple joys with the help of the line man. Download it now and enjoy the game.
