Gameplay

Flip Runner is a physics-based, and very frustrating, parkour game. Parkour is amazing to watch and it’s hard to piece together how hard it is for these people to perform the movements properly. During Flip Runner, you get to experience what it’s like to do front flips, backflips and other cool skills while on the top of a building.

As you can see from the video gameplay, it took a while for me to get used to the controls and how to play but after a while, I got the hang of it. Annoyingly, if there are two movements in a level and you fail the second one, you have to do the first movement again. Because of this, it made Flip Runner slightly frustrating, but that is the absolute beauty of it.

Graphics

I feel as if the graphics for Flip Runner is something I’ve never seen before, but they’re not great. They’re 3D, not very detailed but the gameplay is still just as good. I just think it would seem a little more realistic to have better graphics, but if the developers had a small budget, then this is good enough.

Music & Sounds

Like you would hear if you were doing actual parkour, the sounds in the background consist of city sounds. When you successfully pass a level your character will cheer, and he grunts while he jumps.

Controls

The controls are a little more complex than what I’m used to which is why I was struggling so much to get a perfect landing the first few tries.

  • press and hold your finger on the screen to prepare for the jump
  • when arrow points to the desired location, release to jump
  • release to stop rotation well before feet point downward

The part I found the most difficult was the landing. As the rotation goes quite fast, you have to time it perfectly in order to make the landing and not fall off the building.

I found that the constant ads during the gameplay were super annoying, so if you’re like me, purchasing one of the packages that include the removal of ads would be optimal.

  • Priceless Package – 100 gold bars and the removal of ads for £8.99
  • Movie Coins – 2o0 coins if you watch 10 ads

  • Huge Pile of Coins – 1,500 coins and the removal of ads for £8.99
  • Bag of Coins – 200 coins and the removal of ads for £1.99

The Verdict

As someone who has never taken an interest in parkour, I was surprised that I actually enjoyed Flip Runner. I think the competitiveness and the frustration the fiddly controls bring you make it more fun. I’m someone who loves a challenge, and this game definitely gives you that.
