Wow. They actually referenced the Master Emerald in this.


What does runners say about it?

Seems like some phones are not compatible with the game yet. Guess I'll just have to wait :v:

If they tighten up the UI a bit to make it look more appealing they've really got something solid here. I've been looking for a game to play on breaks at work and Runners really fit the bill for me last evening. Even before work I put about an hour of play into it and not once did I get hit with a "You're out of energy!" message like I was fully bracing for. The little plots are silly but the game play so far is just nice enough to keep me coming back for more. I was really expecting a lot worse from this so I'm glad it came out well.

The list of compatible devices seems more like a list of devices they've explicitly tested. Mine's not on there, but I downloaded the .apk and it's fine.

Also, anyone who's not getting sound effects except for the 10 rings, chances are the game is recognising your device as being not-so-powerful and automatically set it to streamlined mode to reduce demands. You can toggle it in-game in the options menu.

Absolutely in love with this.

I gave the apk to two RL friends as well and they have both been grinding up their ranks all day since. They're not even huge Sonic fans.

I'm genuinely really impressed by the gameplay, and the pay stuff is very non-intrusive compared to other stuff out there.

Sadly I had problems with recording the sound, but I recorded some gameplay of Tails in the second world:



Thanks for uploading a video - quite impressed with it from what I can see. Looks nice and Sega/Sonic ish and looks pretty fun too!

Tails' gameplay kind of bothers me so far. Flying up hurts you, but landing on top of an enemy while flying kills it, which is the exact opposite of how every Sonic game where you can play as Tails has handled flight damage.

But anyway, it's a cute little game. Could stand to have more level variety but this seems like the type of game that could easily throw that in without it making no sense, unlike Sonic Dash where it's just kind of stuck with Seaside hill esq themes from now until the end of time. Along those same lines though the base is far more solid than most of the mobile Sonic's we've seen, so assuming this game will continue to be supported for who knows how long this could be awesome. I just gotta stop sucking and dying during phase 3 (I haven't got anything besides a rank F so far. I'm awesome! :specialed: ).

Also this game seems to basically solidify my theory that wisps are now the new elemental shields. That also threw me off the first couple of times btw, the normal shield makes the electric shield noise, but it doesn't attract rings, that's another item. Same with the combo item, I thought that was invincibility at first due to the stars.

Hah, yeah. This has especially caused trouble for me during the parts where Eggman pops up, cause I usually try to attack him while being under him.

I mean I'm assuming this was done because you can't roll into enemies all the time due to the nature of how the spin dash works, but I kinda feel like adding a roll button would be useful.

A roll button would be great.
I also just encountered a glitch that gave me an infinite drill power (which continued to work even when Eggman popped up) and then it reset itself after that and was back to normal. I don't know how to replicate it though.
