Amusing but simple endless runner has limited appeal.

With simple controls but plenty of challenge, this endless runner will delight fans of the kid-friendly cartoon. In Transformers Rescue Bots: Disaster Dash - Hero Run, players have to run through the damaged streets of Griffin Rock, saving citizens put in peril by the evil Doctor Morocco. To do so, players have to swipe down to use their vehicle form on the streets, swipe up to run on the sidewalk in robot form, and then swipe up again to jump as a 'bot. As you do, you can gather crystals that fill a meter; a full meter transforms you into a Dynobot. In doing all of this, players have to make these robots in disguise avoid obstacles in their way, or outrun hazards, all while rescuing innocent people. There's even times when you battle other robots, though that really just means you smash into them. While this all sounds simple, that's kind of the problem if you're old enough to remember the original cartoons or buy tickets for the live action movies. As endless runners go, this one isn't very complicated or varied. Also, the kid who serves as the announcer is really annoying. Which is why this is decidedly not for longtime (read: old) fans of The Transformers. But if you're young enough to enjoy the new 'toon, Transformers Rescue Bots: Disaster Dash - Hero Run will keep you entertained during commercials.
