Agent Dash (Free) by Full Fat is an endless runner game that will make you feel like a secret agent as you jump, dive and shoot your way through exotic backgrounds and underground lairs. Don’t look away for a second or you may find yourself sinking into toxic waste.
This game is a lot like the endless 3-D runner Temple Run, only with a spy theme and weapons. Oh, and a jet pack. Players control a dapper agent who is running to, or possibly from the hiding place of evil villains. Along the way you must avoid barrels of toxic waste, falling trees, trucks, laser beams, and all manner of obstacles that will keep you from your mission.
As you collect gems, you will be able to buy “gadgets” that will help you on the course. You can unlock the jetpack, which propels the agent forward in a quick burst, or the magnet, which attracts all gems for a short amount of time.
You can also unlock single-use power ups like Air Drop, which drops you right into the villains’ village, or Slow-Mo, which slows time down so you can complete the course easier. These single-use buys cost a lot more, but are not unattainable through diligent game play.
There are 10 different secret agents to unlock, but they cost a pretty penny. Gems flow freely in this game, but it is going to be very difficult to earn the 20,000 you need to unlock the fashionable Retro Goodtug. This is probably where Full Fat hopes to make a couple of bucks off of a free game that is sure to be a huge hit.
This is a fantastic addition to the endless runner genre. The graphics are smooth and bright, the design is impeccable and the plot development is clever. The fact that this game is free makes it a must-have. The gems are plentiful enough that you don’t feel like you have to pay real money for in-app purchases. Get this game in the app store today and you’ll be rubbing elbows with James Bond before you know it.
