Circle Runner is quite a unique game without any real competition in the App Store. Most games you’ll find are just variations on something that’s been done before. That’s not the case with Circle Runner. This is a game that deserves its own category: you might call it an endless circle game instead of an endless runner. This is a free app and it’s compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
Playing a game that spins around in a never ending circle may not sound like a lot of fun but this one really is. Circle Surfer is a simple little game with cute graphics and pleasant background music; on top of all that, it’s free, which is always a bonus. The most popular games are generally some of the simplest and Circle Surfer definitely qualifies. This is a game that will have you addicted in no time so don’t be surprised if your wife gets annoyed at you for skipping dinner.
I did find a couple of problems though. The most obvious was the annoying ads throughout the game. You’ll find ads on the bottom of every screen and they pop up from time to time when you complete a game. It’s more than a little annoying. The other problem I came across was that the app occasionally crashes and there’s nothing more annoying than being in the middle of a great game only to have it crash on you. This app will require 9.1 MB of free space on your iOS device.
How to Play
Circle Surfer is one of the most addictive games I’ve come across in the App Store. It’s not the easiest game to play but with a little practice you will get better; most of all, it’s fun. You control a character that continuously spins around a circle trying to collect gems. Every so often blocks appear in his way. If your character runs into these blocks its game over. To avoid the blocks you have to tap on the screen at just the right time; if you time it right the blocks are thrown into the air and your character can continue on his way. It may sound easy but it’s one of the most challenging and fun games to be found in the App Store in a long time.
If you collect enough coins you can purchase new character such as ninjas, pirates, and zombies, although you can also purchase characters that are just a different color. You have to collect a lot of coins to get the coolest characters but with a little practice you’ll get there.
Circle Surfer is one of the most addictive games to come out of the App Store in quite a long time. Its unique gameplay doesn’t really fit into any of the standard game categories but it’s a whole lot of fun. It’s definitely worth the download.
