Review QuickBoy

Brandon Girod
9.0Excellent
Excellent gameplay, strong controls, plenty of upgrade paths
A bit of a grind, lengthy tutorial
In most runners you don't really have a clear sense of what you're doing or why, but that's not the case in Quickboy for Android. In this game, the world has been overrun by zombies but society still exists, though a bit on the fringe. You play as a member of an elite mail delivery squad known as Quickboy Inc, who delivers packages of comfort and hope to people.
Each level is designed by hand and designed pretty well. The objective is to get from the starting point, navigate around obstacles, avoid zombies, and try and get there as fast as possible. There is a jump button and and slide button and you'll spend most of your time balancing between the two. The mechanics seem shallow, but the game forces you to use the two in cool ways. For instance, there is a double jump mechanic, and jumping also doubles as an attack. In fact, you'll be able to link zombie kill combos by jumping on one at the right time, which will then launch you into a kill streak.
Along the way you'll collect coins that can be used to upgrade different parts of your character. Upgrades happen pretty frequently, so while the gameplay has you collecting a lot of currency, I never really felt like I was grinding it out just for the sake of grinding.
Control and gameplay-wise, this game is pretty on point. Everything is as responsive as you'd hope and there aren't any intrusive ads that ruin the experience. I also found myself playing this game a lot longer than I typically would to finish up my review, which is a good sign.
As far as runners go, QuickBoy is one of the best that I've played in recent memory. The only real downside is that the tutorial does go on for a bit, as does some exposition between characters. That aside, the game is great and you should play it.
