Earlier this week Ragdoll Run got a pretty big 2.0 update that added some cool new features. I’ve played Ragdoll Run in the past, but never did a review for it. With the shiny new update installed I decided to finally give it a full review and hands-on.
Ragdoll Run is classified as a “free runner,” which is the same category as games like Temple Run. Your character, in this case a ragdoll, is constantly running, and it’s your job to help him avoid obstacles and collect rewards. You can do this by jumping or rotating the path he is running on. The controls work relatively well, but I did have some issues with the game not recognizing swipe gestures. [Edit: Apparently you can only rotate while on green tiles.]
The newest feature in Ragdoll Run is Ragdollars and the Ragshop. You can collect Ragdollars in the game and then use them in the Ragshop to buy costumes, backgrounds, and wallpaper for your phone. It adds a whole new dynamic to the game that it was missing. Like all aspects of the game the Ragshop has a very cute and, well, the only way to describe it is a ragdoll-like design.
Ragdoll Run is the type of game I love to review. The developer is dedicated to the platform and they never stop improving the game. These are the types of games that are worth the price tag. Ragdoll Run is available in a free version and a $0.99 ad-free version. If you like supporting Windows Phone developers this is a great game to try.
