Penguin dash

Penguin dash is a very easy and relaxing game it's not like those games where you get so angry and upset with it and you throw your divvies on the floor. But when ever I try to lilt the screen it refuses to, and unfortunately it glitches. After All the game is fun, cute and definitely four stars but the one OTHER star dezalved because the glitches and the refuses

When I saw this app in the app store, I thought it would be dopey and corny. And it is. But it's also cute! SUPER cute. The way that the penguin swings his head around when he runs is adorable, and although the other characters can be pretty creepy, it's cool how you can upgrade your character. Sure, its a copy of temple run, like many other games. But it's not JUST a copy- it's a cute copy with fun gameplay and cute noises... And of you listen closely you can hear a dog barking. This game is better than temple run and although it is simple, it is extremely cute!

It's a cute game very similar to temple run but more like a cuter less deadlier version lol 😹 I like the game a lot it's addicting to but it's probally not for 4 years and under because it's a little bit of a complicated game like you have to know where to swipe and when to swipe and what to dodge so yea all in all cool game!
