Night Skate shines in a sea of freemium, ad-infested, cloned garbage. It's charming looking, controls are tight, and there's a decent skill ceiling. I'd like a bigger jump button, and some of the palettes really don't work. Some hits seem just unavoidable and the game is very short. However it's a lot of fun and I definitely got my money's worth out of it. I'd love a sequel and would gladly pay more for it.

I played for a little and the only reason I can't give it a 5 star is because of the menu's. The aesthetic and music is great along with the controls, but the buttons are on the smaller side which can be difficult to press for larger hands. Choosing a stage can work exactly how you want to but can get annoying if you accidentally touch the screen. The last problem I have is that whenever you choose to go back to the menu it basically launches the game again if that makes sense

Never thought I'd want to buy an endless runner, but this was totally worth the $2.99. No ads, timers, energy systems, or even currencies--it's just all about the run. Nice old-school visuals with lots of fun color palettes to unlock, great chiptune music, and some really challenging obstacle placement in the later two levels that makes for fun combo potential. Definitely a standard for premium mobile games.
