Monster Dash, from the makers of the hit iPhone game Fruit Ninja, challenges you to jump from building to building to go for the greatest distance, all while monsters try to thwart your mission. The game mechanics in Monster Dash are much like the popular Web game Canibalt (also available for iPhone and iPad), in which your character automatically runs while you carefully time your jumps from platform to platform. But with Monster Dash, you're also given a fire button so you can shoot monsters that get in your way while you struggle to stay alive.
Monster Dash is a very easy game to pick up and play because of its simple game mechanics, but the developers of the game added plenty of variation by including themed areas (all randomly generated) so you won't get tired of running through the same location again and again. You'll fight zombies, demons, and vampires as you travel through well-designed levels that each gives the game a different feel. You also can find weapon pickups as you run through the levels, including Mr. Zappy (a lightning gun) and The Pacifier (a large handgun). To keep the game interesting, as you run, your character (did we mention his name is Barry Steakfries?) teleports to a different themed world every 1,000 meters, making for varied gameplay as you advance and the pace gets faster. Overall, if you like running games like Canibalt, or just want a simple, but fun game with tons of variety, Monster Dash is a challenging and addictive option.
