Reminds Me of Crash Bandicoot

L, O, FREAKIN', L!!!!! I'm GLAD someone FINALLY released a game that's based on the Crash Bandicoot favorite level, Boulder Dash! It's funny, because this game's name is very similar to the level's name! Only difference? This one's endless, with more than one chance (and a BIRD!). You're probably wondering: "Why didn't Naughty Dog ever come up with a side minigame in one of their Crash games?" Well, now they can't, since bonehead ACTIVISION is now the only one allowed to mess with him, but if you WANTED that in the first place, this is your 18-year dream come true. In fact, I'd say Jack looks very close to Crash (LOL, they should Co-op). Even the jungle vibe is so close to that of Crash's that you'd wonder if you're in tribal heaven.

There are stuff that needs to be improved, though. In my opinion, the only thing that needs fixings are the "ducking" arcs and the skull boosts. Anyone can also JUMP also those arcs, and all the skull really does is make Jack smoke his body off with blue stuff. Plus, the boost pads should help to get Jack farther from the boulder, as well as Wilbur the bird thingy. Heck, there should be a system in which we collect special stuff so we can use Wilbur in-game. Also, there should be some more areas to run through, like a snowy mountain area.

Anyway, this is the best deal you're gonna get from a studio not working with Activision (and thank GOD that's the case; I can never forgive them for what they did to Spyro).

Awesome Crash Bandicoot-Styled Runner!

This is an awesome recreation of the Crash Bandicoot running from the boulder levels and the only problem I am having is the mute button keeps getting messed up. Like, I'll press mute and it's still going and then I press volume up and it's muted. Kind of confusing, that needs to be fixed a bit and some other glitches too..

Looks, acts, and sounds like crash bandicoot to me

I love it. it's like a port of boulders and boulder dash from crash 1. But it's way to hard but overall it's AMAZING
