    Jones is so responsive—able to jump or charge the instant her last action is complete—that even failing on harder levels still feels like your own fault, not the game’s. Couple that with the adorable kitties who celebrate your success with fireworks, the blocky retro graphics that make even an overflowing litter box endearing, and the chiptune soundtrack that is charged with enthusiasm for kitty-rescuing, and Jones on Fire is an excellent automatic runner pick-me-up for the feline at heart.

    Jones is, on the whole, a great saviour of kitties, and Jones On Fire is a fun runner. It lacks a bit in the longevity department, but with a little love and a few more environments it could be positively gripping.

    If you really have an inexhaustible appetite for both kittens and auto-runners, you'll get a lot more out of the game than most, although we still feel that the pricing is too step given the gameplay on offer, as well as the additional currency in-app purchase store. It's a blast for a time, just don't expect it to set your world on fire.

    Jones On Fire ($1.99, Universal) is another in a long line of endless runners that has style, and personality, but doesn’t do enough gameplay wise to stand out.
