    The charm of Grim Joggers comes with its retro interface. The little joggers all graphically look like they are somewhere between the NES and the SNES, and the sound effects and upbeat theme music really set the mood well.

    For a small game like this, it's quite impressive that you can get so much from it.

    I am hooked on this game. Grim Joggers is somewhat disturbing and downright brutal at times-especially when you are running through the battlefield and limbs are flying-but it is easily one of the most entertaining platformer games I have played.

    Though it introduces the new mechanic of controlling an entire group of runners as opposed to just a single sprinter, it fails to do much else to really impress us.

    Unless you're driven insane by the idea of playing another endless runner, you should definitely take the time to enjoy Grim Joggers, if only to experience the random madness of trying to keep everyone alive as long as possible.

    It's $.99, and it'll run on both your iPhone and iPad. Do you like Canabalt? Yes? Well, you'll likely enjoy Grim Joggers.

    If the endless running games still doesn't make you sick, Grim Joggers with its multiple runners brings a simple yet interesting change in the genre's routine.

    While much of its perpetual running gameplay has been seen before, Grim Joggers does enough to push it in front of the also-rans with its crowd-control twist.

    Grim Joggers is fun and full of personality. That said, if you've played an endless running game before, you won't find much new here.

    The fantastic scoring system and randomly generated levels give the game a ton of replay value.

    It has a cool 16-bit look and feel to it that reminds me of the game Flashback, and the various deaths are funny to behold. Because of the basic graphical design I would have liked to see more levels than the initial three (more levels are promised).
