Agent, Run!, the cheeky new game that we have been keeping an eye on for a short while, officially launches today on Google Play.
The running game brings some of the best elements of the genre and old school cold war espionage intrigue to Android users. Players should appreciate the different take on the control mechanism.
Created by Matthias Maschek (AgentDroid) and Wolfgang Knecht (pixelclash)â€”two indie developers hailing from Viennaâ€”Agent, Run! is the perfect mix between endless runners and 007-inspired goons and gadgets. Players take on the role of square-jawed, stylish Agent Robert Robertson in order to defeat the villainous Professor E. Vil and his horrific (and pixel-perfect) â€œDoomsday Machineâ€â€”which has the potential to end the world as we know it.
The game is a fast-paced 2D endless runner with gesture-based controls focusing on *disabling hazards* versus the usual jumping/sliding. Swiping the screen allows players to destroy drones, open heavy metal doors and even freeze shark tanks! Some of Agent, Run!â€™s many gadgets include a jetpack, Hazmat suit, bazooka, hedge trimmer, zipline, and more.
We had an opportunity to review this game, and came away mostly charmed by the action.
The game is available on the Play Store with the first level free; further play requires in-app purchasing.
