[Featured App Review] Doodle Run 05/30/10

May 30, 2010 by

Doodle Run by eBattalion is a very addicting game available in the app store for $0.99! What a deal! 

Similar to games such as Traffic Rush by Donut Games and Doodle Jump by Lima Sky, the purpose of this game is to rack up points; not to advance levels. See, this type of gameplay makes the game more addicting because you feel the need to “pwn” your old score but while you’re trying to beat your old score, you have no fun. And that’s what games are all about right?

So in this game, you play the “Dude” (points for creativity) and you’re objective is to not get killed by psycho snakes, rocks, zombies and various other perilous objects. How do you do that? You drag the paper (hence the name DOODLE Run). Which may be confusing (paper is white, background is white). If you don’t understand where I’m going with this, try the game yourself. 

If you feel hopeless, there are several weapons and special objects. Such as the rocket launcher (self-explanatory) and the brain (catch a ride).

But, in a game where weapons are provided for you, it only means one thing.

Weapons are also against you. I would like to note the chainsaws.

Sorry, can’t rotate.

If you are thinking that you’re probably going to fail miserably, then you’re probably right. 
Ha, I’m just joking with you! When you fail (most fails), Dude’s head comes off. When his head comes off, you have to hope it doesn’t suffer any more damage or doesn’t fall, then you reattach it. Time to total it up!
