I can’t play it!!!
Ok so I rated this game 5 star because it took me back to the good old days of playing paperboy unfortunately I am now too old to play this type of game it’s all over the place for me I just can’t think quick enough and so I lose very fast just too fast paced for me if I was 20 years younger I would be owning it but this is the first game where old age has set in for me just can’t do it lol great game tho
The un-winnable bug
So at the last stretch Biffs car is meant to pull up into the right lane and chuck dynamite at the player. I only know this looking up a complete run online. In this app, there is unfortunately a game breaking glitch in that Biffs car is invisible. You can hear the dynamite chucking sound and can still be killed (saw another review complaining about dying on a clear road at the end, obviously killed by this bug) but you can move between all three lanes and his car is clearly not there. This is not a one off bug, it has happened EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. I. REACH. THAT. POINT. (I’ve reached that point over 100 times). As there is no visible dynamite nor crosshair to tell you where the invisible dynamite is landing it’s impossible to complete and I can’t even imagine what will happen when you have to grab on to the front of the car when there isn’t one. Please developer(s?), if you’re reading this, it’s not a troll or a joke, this bug is real and other reviews have complained as-well. I love this game (thus the 4 stars) but being un-winnable due to a bug is heartbreaking. Please fix it 🙁
Great idea. Poor game.
This could & should be a great game. Great idea and fun visuals. Unfortunately let down by poor execution. The controls are so slow & sluggish it’s a miracle you can get anywhere in the game. It’s really noticeable in the sewer section where you can move sideways quick enough. There are ads galore. Which you’re supposed to be able to pay to remove. This doesn’t work. I paid and there’s still an ad after every third restart. I’ve had this game for three weeks and the best score I got was 40% though the level. I’ve tried to like it but have now deleted it. Shame.
Brilliant but needs update
This is a great game with some really cool references to 80s movies. My son loves it as much as me! But we’re both stuck at the end point and I’m not sure if it’s a glitch… we can’t get past Biffs car (at 95%) – you’re supposed to jump over it by pressing A but it doesn’t work – we’ve both tried loads of times now. Does it need an update?! Hope it gets sorted as would love to finish the game!!
