I am delighted by the revitalisation of the Crash Franchise over the past few years, with the reimagining of the original Crash Trilogy and the recently announced Crash Bandicoot 4 video game. So needless to say the new announcement of the 'Crash Bandicoot: On The Run!' mobile game has me rather excited and I have signed up for the pre-registration on Android.
My biggest issue with the game is that it's free! I would love to see a quality Crash mobile game, however the current state of play is free-to-play so there will without any shred of a doubt, obviously, be the dreaded in-app purchases that will be in the game however as long as they are optional purchases as in cosmetic and not pay to win, it should be fine.
The graphics for the game look great and the gameplay mechanics are the traditional endless runner style, a number of people online have referred to the new game as a "temple runner clone with a Crash skin" and a "Subway Surfers copy". Regardless I'm delighted that we're essentially going to get a Crash Bandicoot rendition of a classic mobile game to play on the train or bus.
