Daddy Long Legs
A frustrating game that falls flat on its face.
Daddy Long Legs are fairly harmless spiders, easily identified by their super long limbs. In the game Daddy Long Legs, you keep your balance as you walk to hold up the rest of your body.
Daddy Long Legs is an endless runner. You tap the screen to move the spider's legs to get as far as possible. Your farthest distance is recorded as well as your last run. You are also able to record and upload any of your runs after dying. This will allow you to show off your skills to friends.
To be fair, the game is somewhat addictive. When you start playing, it is very hard to get far, so you'll play a lot before putting together a good run.
Unfortunately, the awkward controls get in the way. There is no rhyme or reason to your taps. The game feels like it was designed for you to fail, and you can never get far on your runs before going splat.
In addition, there's an annoying ad banner at the top of the screen that takes up roughly a quarter of real estate. Not that the ad gets in the way of the gameplay, but it is quite annoying and a bit of a distraction. There is no way to get rid of it.
Daddy Long Legs is very frustrating, and most people won't give it a chance after a few failed runs. The controls and physics are a little hard to master, and for the one satisfying run you'll have, the overall frustration isn't worth it.
