Side scrolling running games are plentiful on the iOS platform, it takes something unique and interesting to hold any new players interest. AquaDude, by Vortex Gaming, eliminates the pitfalls other running games fall into, namely, taking the action off the land and allowing the player to travel the full height of the screen.
AquaDude is one of the only, if not the only, underwater running game available on any portable device but it doesn’t take that for granted. Enemies in the oceans of AquaDude include four eyed megalodon sharks, supercharged electric eels and even flaming torpedo piranhas to name a few. Talk about dangerous waters.
Powerups include a fully armored Aquaship (find those purple orbs!), a Hydro Scooter and even sea creatures such as a dolphin and a flame breathing sea horse. Each of these powerups allow AquaDude to take another hit before he dies.
Fans of running games that felt limited by the single plane of play will love the freedom of going up and down the full height of the screen (ah the freedom).
