Axon Runners is a racing game with sharp futuristic graphics, comprising of 10 levels in the story mode and 6 more levels in the hard mode. You steer as a young rebel attempting to make your way through various levels on an hoverboard having ability to latch on to varied surfaces. Picking up as many orbs as possible throughout the course of the game, while trying to minimize your wipeout points, should be your primary game goal.
In this gaming endeavor, you have to control your racer, steering left or right, and jump sideways as and when need arises. In fact, the only way you could increase your speed is by mastering your jumps. Also, you will be inviting a lot more points, the faster you travel and the more accurately you jump. Your game progression will have you unlock new boards carrying new outfits and abilities. However, a few boards are reserved for in-app purchases. What’s more enthralling, is that you know your ratings on a scale of one to five stars, as you progress in the game. Garnering a five star rating is definitely a challenge, especially for the hardcore professionals.
What’s good about Axon Runners
- Crispy, sharp graphics belonging to a futuristic genre
- Appealing soundtrack mixing well with the gaming graphics
- Fast pulsating action at its best
What’s not so good about Axon Runners
- A very tired corporate sponsorship from Coke Zero, spoiling the whole decor of the game
- A long drawn convoluted plot, unnecessarily rushed upon
- Difficult sharp curves
For $3.99, the game comes close to an average. However, I must confess that dealing with the sponsorship advertising and trashy Google ads is sheer pain. A maintenance patch for the game would certainly help to enhance the game features, in which case I would recommend this game. Until this happens, and till the time the makers come with a more exciting hoverboard hopping version, stay away from buying this one.
