    Run Roo Run is one of the most enjoyable experiences you can have on this particular platform, and probably the best dollar you'll spend for a long, long time.

    Definitely one of the best games on iOS. You should expect everyone to be talking about this game soon enough – this one is as platform defining as games get on the App Store.

    Run Roo Run is simple, clean fun paired with controls and gameplay that suit everyone from the newest of gamers to the most hardcore of platforming fan; a wonderfully broad and compelling package.

    Run Roo Run is probably the most enjoyable reflex test ever made.

    Roo doesn't have a crazy hook to distinguish itself from a billion other platformers in the App Store, but its quality sets it apart.

    A great game for iOS. An enjoyable and easy to play title, yet difficult to dominate, full of good humour and with a lond duration. A winner cangaroo.

    Run Roo Run isn't the most original game ever, but it takes the best out of a lot of worlds, and then owns that stuff. Its entertaining in big or small chunks, and those challenge levels are a whole new world of hurt. Give it a shot.

    Run Roo Run is a fun, engaging, and intuitive platform puzzler and is well worth its 99 cents price tag.

    Run Roo Run takes a simple concept and creates a game full of depth, style and character. It's a perfect example of what can be achieved with a bit of imagination and a one touch control system.

    Boasting a ridiculous number of levels, appealing graphics, and a bevy of mechanics to utilize, Run Roo Run is an enjoyable game with wide appeal.

    Simple and effective. A good, very addictive game.

    Run Roo Run is a very fun game, despite its disarming simplicity. Some challenges are really trivial and their resolution doesn't take away more than a handful of seconds, but nonetheless you'll want to play again and again.

    5th Cell triumphs again with Roo Run Run and there's no mistake here, for € 0.79 you get an enduring diversion.

    Run Roo Run looks, sounds and plays great. It's another great example of simple one-button controls used to create a game experience with a surprising amount of depth. Funky difficulty issues aside, both hardcore and casual gamers will find a lot to love in 5th Cell's latest.

    My biggest complaint involves the difficulty, or lack thereof. Instead of introducing the game's intricacies during the first chapter, the designers spread them all throughout the game. What ensues are too many easy levels, where it takes but a few tries to score gold stars and move on; thankfully, "extreme" levels take considerably longer to figure out.

    Addictive and quick fire, Run Roo Run is a perfect example of tailored iOS design, although it'll be over a little too quickly for some.

    The only downside to the game is that the "Extreme" levels must be completed in order to get the real ending, and a few of them seem impossible for a human to complete.

    With Run Roo Run 5th Cell continues its position as a developer with an eye for interesting aesthetic. Despite its extremely easy initial levels, the last part of the game offers some small amount of platforming fun.

    5th Cell got its recognition with Scribblenauts on the DS. With Run Roo Run, the studio seems to aime at creating the next Angry Birds. The only action you'll perform while playing the Kangooroo Mom looking for its baby : jump. 420 levels with puzzle elements and gradual difficulty, it's a nice principle, but it's so casual that one can't see any challenge coming his way. Maybe future level additions will up the ante, but it's clearly not as ambitious as Scribblenauts was.

    It's becoming a 5th Cell tradition: strong ideas compromised by erratic level design and structural weaknesses. One day, the developer will find the right balance to support its undeniable creativity, but sadly, it hasn't found it here.
