I think it's safe to say that we've all had our fill of endless-runners.
However, we recommend you don't write of the entire genre before trying oh my giraffe, the extremely daft but surprisingly enjoyable savanna-based sprinter starring a giraffe with the most flexible neck in Africa.
Harry Slater reviewed the game for Pocket Gamer. Check out the video to hear his verdict.
Description“Endless high score action that's just incredibly delightful” – TouchArcade
Eat fruits while being chased by lions. You play as an adorable and stretchy giraffe running through the savanna. Chew through the vines to make the fruit bounce off your butt and hit those big scary cats in the face. Don't worry, your flexible neck will let you reach everything. You'll be great. And remember: the lions sleep at night. That's your chance to gobble down as many fruits as possible. Just be sure not to wake up the lions.
