You’d be forgiven for thinking that most lane-based endless running games on iOS pretty much look the same. Indeed, each of them seems to be little more than a slight variation on the formula of bipedal characters, from teenage hooligans to little yellow henchmen, running from side to side and away from some form of threat. But Tape It Up dares to be different, seeing as its playable character is, of all things, a tape dispenser.

Swipe to jump. This vertical scrolling arcade game has you swiping left or right to make the tape dispenser jump from one box to another, and tapping repeatedly to speed up the intrepid taper’s motion across boxes. Be careful, though, because if you swipe too early or too late, or tap too long, the tape dispenser is liable to fall to its untimely demise on the conveyor belt and it’s game over.
Feel the fever. To help you achieve game longevity, you can collect certain letters along the way, either directly on your path or from special slot machine-like lucky boxes. If you spell the word FEVER, you’ll go into fever mode and, for a few seconds, you’ll be practically flying and amassing points across the conveyor belt. If you want to challenge yourself, you can choose to hop into a box that takes you into the game’s hard mode.
What is it about?
Tape It Up may very well be the first ever “endless taper” on iOS. In the game, you have to guide a tape dispenser as it jumps between the boxes that it has to tape up along a warehouse conveyor belt.
For those who...
- enjoy endless running games.
- appreciate touches of oddity in otherwise run-of-the-mill games.
Not for those who...
- want games with more challenging gameplay.
- think pixel art and chiptune are so passé.
Why we love it
Rather than going the easy route of looking and playing like most other endless running games out there, Tape It Up seeks out to stand out with its delightfully odd take on the genre, starting with a tape dispenser as the playable character and a conveyor belt as the setting, and continuing with outlandish unlockable characters and themes. Add to that a winning combination of pixel art and chiptune-inspired soundtrack, and you have a fun and addictive endless taper indeed.
