FOTONICA
Download on the AppStore
4 out of 5

PROS

  • A fresh take on the endless-runner format
  • Vector art styling are great
  • Tough, but rewarding

CONS

  • Timing jumps is initially tricky, and can feel a little off at first
  • It's a one-note game

 

VERDICT

A great-looking and refreshingly new take on the tired endless-runner genre, Fotonica also serves as a delightfully retro nostalgia trip for fans of vector graphics.

Fotonica is an endless-runner.

There, I said it.

But it's also much, much more than that. It's an ode to '80s vector art. It's a mobile Mirror's Edge. It's an artsy speed sim set to by a throbbing, experimental soundscape.

And, though not without issues, it's also a lot of fun, as Pocket Gamer's Craig Grannell found during his review.
