Highly Stylized, Highly Enjoyable

This straightforward, endless distance game has a great look and feel! The stylized graphics are simplistic but beautiful in their black and tan Japanese look. Additionally the game has high replay value and is quite addictive in just the right way. Excellent game!

Beautifully done.

A great endless runner with a really striking visual style, a great flow to its gameplay mechanics and an absolutely killer soundtrack. Highly recommended to anyone who likes their endless runners to include some timing-based action.

Kind of addicting

Somebody put a lot of love into this game. I like everything from the interface to minimalism to simple timing based gameplay. The graphics are outdated however, and it does get a bit repetitive, yet keeps you coming back.
