Gameplay

Run on the tiles in time with the music!

Rhythm-based music games have been around on the app store for years – the gameplay usually consists of tapping a tile in time with the music. I thought Melodies Run would be a similar concept, however, you have to run on the tiles and they’re fairly easy to hit.

With other games, you need your full concentration in check to make sure you don’t miss a tile but I felt like I was just gliding along during this gameplay.

Graphics

The graphics need work!

The graphics need a lot of work. The two characters you can pick from are ‘Boy’ and ‘Girl’ and they both have set skins, meaning you can’t customize them.

During the gameplay, there’s a piano-looking track and the aim is to run across the colored tiles only.

Music & Sounds

The music is instrumental versions of popular songs, so there are no lyrics involved. This is most likely due to copyright reasons but I liked how it sounded so it wasn’t a problem for me.

Controls

Drag left and right to control!

To control, drag your finger left and right to run across the colored tiles. The controls are fairly simple and I didn’t find that I had to concentrate very hard either!

The Power of in-app Purchases

Purchase the removal of ads for £1.79!

The only in-app purchase available in Melodies Run is the removal of ads for a small price of £1.79. Personally, I don’t see the point as I didn’t find there were a lot of ads throughout the gameplay anyway. But if this is something that bothers you, it’s a super small price to pay.

The Verdict

What did you think?!

Melodies Run wasn’t great in my eyes. If you’re looking for a good rhythm game, I’d suggest Tap Music 3D or Tiles Hop – EDM Rush!

If you decide to download Melodies Run, let us know what you think and if you agree or disagree with any of the things we said. Happy gaming and stay casual!
