Very Fun, and appropriate, however not addictive

this is very fun and a very good time killer, not addictive as well so your kids will finally be accepting turning off the game for the day or is finally able to put it down for 5 seconds.

Is It Any Good?

Like the movies that inspired it, this arcade running game is fun and clever, but isn't nearly as good as it could been. As with every endless runner game, Jumanji: Epic Run has you using simple touch controls to jump over obstacles, slide underneath others, and move horizontally to avoid ones you can't avoid vertically, all as you keep moving forward in one of the three lanes. Think of it like an obstacle course where you had to keep going or you'd be disqualified. Oh, and don't forget to pick up the gold bars and other rewards.

What makes this different from other endless runners is that there's a lot more variety. Within the same run, you may find yourself not just running forward, but also away from things that are chasing you, up the side of an unstable cliff, or cliff diving off a waterfall that's also full of obstacles that will knock you out if you don't get out of their lane. You can even, if you time it right, knock bad guys out of your way. It's just a bummer this can be a bit twitchy if your device is older than the previous movie. Characters occasionally don't always jump when you tell them to, and some menu buttons can be a bit unresponsive, especially when you want to go back to the main menu so you can start a new run. But when it works, Jumanji: Epic Run is as entertaining as the movie that it's based on.
