Rowan McPaddles is a challenging endless runner where you make your way down a dangerous river in an ultimately futile attempt to stay afloat.

Subways and temples? Those are for babies. Rivers are the true test of the human spirit. Rowan McPaddles takes what you know about endless runners and turns it over its head!

In Rowan McPaddles, you have full control of your character, giving you the freedom to move around and die in whichever way you choose!

Almost everything in Rowan McPaddles is potential death. Sharks, hippos, crocodiles, and even cute, innocent-looking beavers are out to get you, so it’s your job to make sure that they don’t! For as long as possible, anyway. Like the saying goes “Nothing is certain but death and taxes.”

You will die. A lot. Just trying to be clear here.

100% DIFFICULT, 101% FUN
Yes, Rowan McPaddles is a difficult game. You know what else is difficult? Life. But, if you stick with it and you get good at it, you’ll find that there’s nothing more rewarding than achieving something real after a lot of hard work. It’s why people climb mountains and swim across the English Channel. So water you waiting for? Go out there, play the game, and show it who’s boss!

I have to say that this game is great.

It’s fun, it’s fast paced, and it’s hard but the only issue is that you have to pay to unlock new skins. I think that’s kinda annoying but overall, I’d say it’s fun.
