What do you do when you’re faced with a gauntlet of skeletons, zombies, and other monsters? If you’re Junior, you’re armed with a vicious right hook and an amazing pair of rocket boots, so you take the fight to the undead and other vicious beasts. That’s the idea behind Jr’s Mad Dash, which has recently rocketed onto the App Store.
Run the gauntlet, and collect treasure
You’ll see some breathtaking landscapes on your run, but you might not have time to enjoy them. You’ll have to punch through the enemies, rocket your way up when fire or other obstacles get in the way, and look out for treasure chests and gems to collect.
Simple controls to punch, fly, and glide
Jr’s Mad Dash uses simple touch gestures to control your run. Tap two fingers on the screen to activate Junior’s rocket boots, swipe to glide in the air, and tap with a single finger to punch and fall back to the ground. It’s loads of fun, with simple to learn but challenging to master controls.
Enjoy it on the big screen
Jr’s Mad Dash is a universal app, meaning you can even enjoy it on your fourth-generation Apple TV. Controls with the Siri Remote take full advantage of the accessory’s capabilities, including the ability to just move the device upwards to activate the rocket boots.
Beginning your mad dash
Jr’s Mad Dash is designed for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, and Apple TV, requiring iOS 9 or later. You can buy the game for $0.99 on the App Store, without worrying about ads or in-app purchases.
