Looking for fun that’s back to basics and a new twist on platform gaming? Run and Rock-it Kristie is just the app for you. It features a young rocker who’s aiming to make it to the big leagues in the musical industry, and can only get there with your help.
Your job is to get Kristie through a maze of everyday, run of the mill, obstacles she might come across while walking the streets of her hometown in the middle of summer, while dashing through the brisk air of autumn, or sliding across snow-capped hills in the midst of winter.
This game is all about a rocker named Kristie. The game moves Kristie through a myriad of scenes full of animation and color. In summer, the game will move Kristie along the sidewalks of her town, in search of stars that help her reach her destiny. As she walks, or runs, along, there will be obstacles, like trash cans, ladders and boxes. You have make Kristie jump over these obstacles, allowing her to continue on her course.
Logistics of game play is simple. There is an icon of a shoe at the bottom left of the screen. You tap it, and Kristie jump. Tap several times together and she jumps and jumps and jumps, helping her reach a staircase landing that hugs the side of a building, which may help her reach the top of the next building. As she jumps and “flies,” she can also collect stars. Some stars are large and some are small. Collect them all to maximize your game playing options.
Scenes that you get right off the bat are the summer scene. The fall and winter scenes remain locked until you collect enough stars. When Kristie finishes the end of a scene, you are rewarded with an amazing guitar solo, which change with every scene you play. However, within the summer scene, there are 10 different playing levels, to keep you busy.
If you can’t wait to score enough points to see other game playing options, you can always make an in-app purchase, an option that’s available from the main screen.
Other options allow a few simple adjustments to your playing experience, like music and sound controls. Outside of that, there are not many other things that you can change about the game. It doesn’t hook into Game Center, so good or bad, there is no competitive feature to this game.
This turns out to be a nice benefit for folks who are looking for a game that doesn’t kill off your player because you didn’t complete a level in time. Sometimes, games like those can be a turn off.
The only real downside to the game is that you don’t have access to the other scenes straight away, which would have been nice. Maybe offering just 5 levels across two scenes would draw in more subscribers.
Run and Rock-it Kristie is still a winner with what it does offer. A simple and fun game and lets you play as long as you want, without bounds!
