Available for free through the iTunes Store, this app even offers opportunities to win real-life prizes.
As is typical of endless runner games, you have control over one football player, the ball carrier, with the goal of avoiding as many players, referees, and other random obstacles that get in your way for as long as possible.
The ball carrier is able to move left or right, and can also jump. At times, the controls for Endless Blitz felt a little sluggish and the up swipe to jump just didn’t always register. For a game that’s based on precision, it’s greatly affected by the unresponsive controls.
It’s a little frustrating at first, but it’s also something that players can get used to and improve the timing of their moves.
All in all though, Endless Blitz keeps you coming back for more, it excels in its replay value.
After a few tries at the game, it starts to get addicting because the game is excellent at getting you to try to beat your previous run. Specifically, with the option to utilize “powerups,” the game pushes you to get better. Finally, there’s even a mini game included that is similar to the iOS cult hit, Flappy Bird.
Appearance and Layout:
Endless Blitz features good graphics, a nice upbeat audio track including menacing grunts when blockers are coming at you, and an appealing game design.
The game has three different levels, each with its own unique style and complexities. For example, one level is a normal football field littered with refs and players, while another is a busy street sprawling with cones and police officers.
Although it realistically doesn’t make sense to have a football player running through the streets, it’s a quirky, fun concept that adds depth to the game.
However, besides the title screen, Endless Blitz has a bit of a cluttered layout, and, as you might expect in a game developed by a retail store, there are product placement ads scattered throughout the game.
There’s no doubt that Endless Blitz is a fun game, even though its controls could be improved. It’s challenging, yet addictive. The game is free, but there are a lot of advertisements throughout that may bother some people.
However, at the time of this review, there is an opportunity to enter into a drawing for real-world prizes such as a TV or other hhgregg products. This is a nice incentive that is rarely seen in mobile games. All in all, Endless Blitz is definitely worth a try.
Endless Blitz requires iOS 4.3 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
