Looney Tunes Dash
An endless runner? Th-th-th-that's all, folks!
The App Store is positively overflowing with different kinds of endless runners, but we see new ones nearly every week. Looney Tunes Dash is the latest, taking classic Looney Tunes characters and placing them into familiar roles where they'll need to jump over obstacles, collect points, and keep running until you mess up. In the end, it's basically the same kind of game we've played hundreds of times before, which is a shame really, given the excellent source material.
Rather than simply being expected to keep playing as long as possible without a real goal in mind, at least Looney Tunes Dash does offer several goals for you to complete each time you play. One minute you might be collecting a set number of carrots, or the next you might be advised to aim for a specific score. There are also a set of different characters for each episode. For instance, Bugs Bunny is featured in the first episode, and Elmer Fudd is chasing him. You've got Yosemite Sam, Porky Pig, Daffy Duck, and a host of other familiar Looney Tunes characters as well, which at the very least makes for an interesting assortment of characters since you're stuck doing the same things most of the time anyway.
What can be said about this game that hasn't been said about dozens of titles before it? You'll be completing the same sets of goals over and over, even if they are given different names and window dressing. The episodes for each character tend to run much longer than necessary and overstay their welcome. Plus, you'll end up getting bored having done the same things over and over.
Looney Tunes Dash is another endless runner with little offer by way of originality or excitement. You could pick any title off the App Store that would do virtually the same type of thing, and you'd still benefit from it. If you don't like Looney Tunes, you'd be better suited with a different game anyway.
