Quality animation, quality 3d graphics, addictive game play
Very common, difficult to play without in-app purchases
Agent Dash for Android is another Temple Run clone, but this knock-off is actually very well done and a lot of fun. It may even surpass the original in play and presentation.
Agent Dash takes your basic runner game and gives it a James Bond style twist, only this secret agent is a little bumbling and clumsy. The game is very nicely presented. Play occurs in portrait mode and your goofy secret agent runs like mad right form the word go. Just swipe your finger across the screen to make him turn left, right, jump or duck. Avoid obstacles, run like crazy, and ultimately face plant and go splat like Wylie Coyote.
Where are you running, Mr. Dash? Who are you chasing? Is there even a criminal? No one knows; perhaps not even Agent Dash. But he's running like a fiend anyway.
The controls are very responsive and have a lot of accuracy to them, assuring you can make last minute decisions and adjustments. The graphics are excellent; this really looks like a big budget Hollywood animated film. The animation is playful, entertaining and rendered smoothly with few hiccups. The locales are very elaborate and nicely drawn. I would not be surprised if Agent Dash became a Saturday morning cartoon, or even a feature film. He’s kind of a cross between 007 and Inspector Gadget, complete with cool jet pack.
Agent Dash does what every good app clone should aspire to do: build upon an original to make something even better that’s all their own. This one is a lot of fun and I’m already addicted.
