  • Summary: The age of monsters is here! Mankind's last hope for survival rests on the narrow, sloping shoulders of our hero Gizzard, a pair of mysterious talking gloves, and you. Escape from Age of Monsters is an “endless runner” platformer featuring amazing hand-drawn art, humor, hordes of monsters, lots of punching, and a rocking soundtrack from The Binges set in the Age of Monsters universe. Created by Jeff Matsuda, the Emmy award-winning Producer of The Batman cartoon, Escape! is an epic game about life's most important lesson - don't die (and if you can help it, save some kids and grab some power-ups along the way). STUNNING HAND-DRAWN GRAPHICSYou’ll be amazed at the gorgeous hand-drawn graphics and the crisp detail in all the characters. INTENSE RUNNING AND PUNCHINGPunch through walls, using the right glove and rhythmic timing, to keep running. POWERUPS AND BOOSTSSlash and collect the power-ups and bonus items that fly by to amp up your score. SAVE THE KIDSThe orphans are your “lives;” they’re trailing behind you and each kid that gets eaten means the monsters are one step closer to making you dinner.BOSS LEVELSIf you run far enough, you’ll face gargantuan slug monsters; beat them senseless and then explode through their squishy insides.EASY TO LEARN, HARD TO MASTEREnjoy intuitive slashing and punching gameplay that quickly escalates in intensity as you jump from building to building.COMPETE AGAINST FRIENDSSee who can run the farthest and score the most points with Game Center Leaderboards and over 60 Achievements.EARN TROPHIES AND SCORE MULTIPLIERSFinish objectives to earn shiny trophies for your Stash House that also give you permanent point multipliers to boost your score.ROCKING SOUNDTRACKRock out to the game's soundtrack from LA’s hottest upcoming metal band, The Binges.--------------------------------------------------------------- Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for the latest news on Escape from Age of Monsters and more great games from Ayopa Games and Massive Joe Studios. * www.twitter.com/massivejoe* www.twitter.com/ayopagames * www.facebook.com/massivejoestudios* www.facebook.com/ayopagames Expand

    Even people who aren't big on sidescrolling high-score games will find Escape from Age of Monsters humorous, enjoyable, and addictive.

    With challenging color-coded control mechanics, a rocking soundtrack, and impressive graphics, Escape from Age of Monsters may be a mouthful, but it's also an engaging offering.

    A great endless runner. I'd argue that it warrants consideration simply from its visuals.

    An intense dash to infinity that's entertainingly frenetic, if a little too flimsy to hang out with the big boys.

    Proves to be more of a full-featured game than the series' first outing, but for what it has going for it in terms of presentation it lacks in compelling gameplay.

    The detection of item-grabbing slashes is often fumbled, and since moving your finger can leave you prone to missing punches, it ruins a promising risk-reward system.

    A pretty, but by-the-numbers, endless platformer, that I doubt will stay for long on your iOS homescreen.
