(SNAPP Reviews aren’t really a full-fledged iOS game review as much as they are just a way for us to give you a quick “heads-up” on whether a mobile game is good or not. It usually means that we haven’t finished the game yet, but have played a good enough chunk to know whether or not it’s worth your time/money.)
The VideoKid is an endless runner (skater) by FGL Indie Showcase. The game plays like a modern day Paperboy. You play as a young kid delivering pirated videos on his way to see his girlfriend. Now, I’ve played a TON of these style of runners on the App Store, so I wasn’t expecting much going in. I was pleasantly surprised at how much fun The VideoKid is! The game is just dripping with 80’s nostalgia. Every run through, I find some sort of new reference of 80’s pop culture. 80’s aside, the game plays great. The swipe controls work well and there’s enough extra stuff to unlock to keep you wanting to come back for more. I’ve gotta say, I’m really digging this game. Even if you’re burnt out on endless runners, The VideoKid is definitely worth checking out.
The VideoKid is also in this week’s SNAPP Roundup!
