Looney Tunes Dash! is the umpteenth endless runner we've come across. Just another game? Not necessarily, given how well such a frantic game combines with Bugs Bunny and his troupe of friends and allies.
Don't get caught
In Looney Tunes Dash! you'll start off playing as Bugs Bunny, the rabbit, and, as is usually the case in his short animation movies, he is chased by Elmer, the hunter. Later on in the game you'll be able to play as other Warner heroes and their legendary chasers, like Tweety and Sylvester, or Wile E. Coyote and The Road Runner.
Just like in Subway Surfers, a classic game of the genre, your enemy will force you to run so you don't get caught and end the game. As if that wasn't enough, the surroundings won't make it easy for you, as they're full of obstacles.
Unlike Subway Surfers, Looney Tunes Dash! doesn't have levels that are endless, but rather every phase is completed successfully if you manage to fulfill the objective given, such as getting home. This makes the game more agile and less frustrating, although there is a limit of lives.
Similar to Candy Crush, if you don't complete a mission, the game will take a life away from you and when you lose all of the five lives you have, you'll have to wait until you can play again (or pay, of course).
Luckily, the missions are not very complicated. With a bit of skill and, above all, by spending the coins you get on the scene on enhancers and power-ups, you'll be able to play for quite a while without having to recharge your lives.
As easy (or as difficult) as you like
The gameplay of Looney Tunes Dash! isn't new for those of us who are used to endless runner games. It involves using the touchscreen to move left, right and to the center of the screen, as well as to duck or jump.
You'll also be able to play better if you know how to correctly apply enhancers to your characters and if you collect help items along the way that will give you more points or coins.
One novelty this game has, in relation to others, is that, in a way, you decide your level of difficulty. Every mission has different pathways you can take: some are simpler and others more complicated, with more obstacles. Feeling lazy? Choose the easy option and complete the level without further ado. Looking for a challenge? Take the difficult path and get high scores.
Looney Tunes Dash! stands out because of the flamboyant graphics it flaunts on your smartphone. All the levels are colorful and detailed, and they include various references to Warner's short animations (such as ACME brand products), as well as all the franchise's characters, of course - both primary and luxury secondary ones, like Porky Pig or The Tasmanian Devil.
Looney Tunes Dash! also impresses with its acoustics: melodies that remind us of our childhood and very convincing character voices. Without a doubt, this is a clear example of a game that faithfully adapts the license it is based on.
That's all folks!
Looney Tunes Dash! doesn't really stand out because of originality, and it's still the same game as Subway Surfers or Sonic Dash, but with Warner Bros. characters as protagonists. However, its detailed audiovisuals and its balanced difficulty make it suitable for fans of that genre who want to have a change from the same old characters.
