Stylish Sprint Review- Could Have Ended With More Style
Having star-studded reviews for a new game is a pretty common sight. However, the true 1337 test is whether these games are able to stay in the spotlight for long? Players may be influenced to give new games a shot because of its perceived novelty or due to being emotionally influenced by hot catch phrases and witty tag lines littering all over those poetically written game reviews.
This review wasn’t at all random. The team at Gameographics had one game which was sitting in our devices for ages. We no longer launch it as often, but it was simply too good to toss it away.
Stylish Sprint – The charm, the loyal jester that entertained us during our train rides, poop time and while waiting for our dates who chose to turn up 20 minutes late.
If you are familiar with Prison Breakout, and more importantly, obsessed with this sort of genre, you will find yourself loving Stylish Sprint like how fat kids love cakes. This 2.5 dimension game has all the secret sauces that should have made it a mega hit.
Players control dexterous silhouettes to an endless course. Character can either jump, or execute deathblows to crumble nasty obstacles that is hindering your race to the ultimate bragging rights. There are 2 objectives in this game:
1) Run for life (if possible)
2) Collect coins a long the way
Of course apart from well-distributed boosters that empower players to fly, sprint or even attract coins like a black hole. The intelligent twist to this game is that players are not recommended to collect everything they see. Amidst the adrenaline pumping sprinting, players have to be committed to color of the stars they have collected. Stars behave has points multiplier. Hence, it is greater to have 10 yellow stars than 3 blue stars, 4 red stars, and 5 yellow stars.
Despite its cool looking characters, Stylish Sprint has injected some slap stick humor within. Players get to purchase silly looking avatar add-ons which not only make your character run with style, but also with additional stats. The most brilliant aspect in this shop is the ability to unlock 2 more secret characters; one of it is a chunky fat runner, and the other, a sexy silhouette with Tomb Raider physique.
Do not expect Activision quality graphics though. Stylish Sprint, as cool as the name is, offers nothing more than functional graphics. However, having a darting ninja inappropriately placed in a gleeful garden does wonders in helping players stay focus on their hero. Fluke or not, it was an excellent decision to not conform to visual fluffs.
No offense to Super Mario fans, but as far as stamina goes, Stylish Sprint is light years ahead. A simple yet narcotic-laden game which hooks players for possibly and endless period of time. It is quite a waste that this gem got drowned among the sea of games. Lets hope that this review marks the start of its revival!
