  • Summary: Join in the adrenaline rush by jumping in the shoes of Felix or Felicity to race across town in time to rendezvous. To make it unscathed, players need to deftly navigate a series of obstacle-laden environments without ever letting up the break-neck pace. Run, jump, dodge and slide through hectic scenarios while desperately trying to stay ahead of the clock and weather. The pick-up-and-play gameplay makes ingenious use of the Nintendo DS stylus to draw platforms to climb and hop across, dodging difficult barriers and any cold-hearted misanthropes who get in the way. Along the way our protagonists will draw, climb and jump their way through the city, zoo, carnival, park and beach, with each vibrant area packed with opportunities to impress your sweatheart by bowling over bad guys and collecting fruit and stars. Felix and Felicity will have no shortage of help in their date-race against the clock with sage love advice from worldly-wise characters you meet along the way and in-game power-ups including Time-Freeze, Love-Rush, Newton-Bomb and the explosive Love-Nuke. Let nothing stand in the way of true love. [Atari] Expand

  1. Positive: 0 out of 9
  2. Negative: 0 out of 9
  1. It's not going to change the world but old-school platforming fanatics will find much to enjoy here. Not half bad. [Mar 2009, p.85]
  2. The presentation will attract younger gamers but unless you're adept at this gaming lark The Chase could prove frustrating. [May 2009, p.78]
  3. Masochistic players who get excited over an extreme level of unfair challenge might find some mileage out of this title. However, most folks who'd find themselves drawn in by the game's concept and presentation will likely be put off by its grueling unfairness.
  4. Art that fails to distinguish between moving yet non-interactive backgrounds and gameplay elements is a problem as well in this otherwise tightly tuned action/platformer. [Feb 2009, p.87]
  5. At the beginning of the game, you will probably hope that the game experience will grow while playing, but it won´t. Too simple, not very motivating!
  6. 50
    While The Chase certainly shines in its addictive and innovative gameplay, it has the misfortune of just becoming too much and too hard too fast.
  7. A ludicrous save system punishes you mercilessly for trying to be daring. [Feb 2009, p.89]
