Mr. Runner 2: The Masks may start in a green field, but there is something lurking in the tall grass. Don’t worry about him, though, it’s the sky falling you want to watch out for.
As your character runs along, you collect coins and avoid being squished by whatever falls out of the sky. This runner/platformer is all about timing. You can either speed up a bit or slow down (almost, but not quite to a full stop) to avoid the descending menace. When you are successful in avoiding death from above, your runner will strike a pose and assume an interesting mask for a couple of seconds.
There are the ever popular power-ups—such as a magnet—to collect more coins. Use the coins to buy more stuff in the game or to unlock levels. You can, of course, buy more coins with real money, and you have the option to post some achievements or add a “like” on Facebook to earn some gratis coins.
To slow down simply tap and hold the left side of the screen, to speed up, tap and hold the right side of the screen. When using the speed up option, keep an eye on the icon at the bottom center of the screen. You can only use the speed up for a limited time. When you are out of go-go juice it will take some time to recharge.
Time things well and all is cool in the universe, miss the timing and you’re the newest manhole cover on the block.
Don’t worry too much—there is no gore, and if you have purchased a rejuvenation potion, you can keep running the level.
The background music has a bouncy, “keep moving” sound, and the graphics are cartoonish, but this is quite suitable for the game.
Mr. Runner 2 the Masks is an enjoyable installment in the Mr. Runner series, and for only $0.99, it provides descent entertainment value for money. The gameplay is very simple, but the timing challenge will hold your attention.
