Developed by Aeshian and powered by Commercial Bank of Ceylon PLC, “Devil Run” is an Android scroller game where you take control the lead character (dressed up as a Devil from Sri Lankan lore) across a path. Sounds easy right? Well not really. The path is littered with obstacles that threaten to disrupt the flow of the devil. It’s upto you to unleash the Devil and collect all his treasure on the way for your survival.
We’re not talking about true to life, mind blowing, intensive graphics here. Rather, it’s quite the opposite. Simple 2D graphics coupled with colorful backgrounds will keep you occupied at this game for prolonged periods of time. When I heard about the game, I was doubtful if I would indeed spend time on it. Regardless, I hopped over to the Play Store and installed it. No matter how many Triple A or double A titles you play, there’s always something about taking a step back to dive into a simple goal oriented game.
The in-game music is quite upbeat with a mix of classical Sri Lankan drums and cymbals.
Again, I admit at first I was skeptical about how engaging a game like this could be. True enough, there were no variants of this game unlike the others, but that also wouldn’t mean that the game was any good either. So I decided to put all that aside and decided to give this a go.
Gameplay is quite simple. You control the devil as he runs along a 2D platform. Along the way you cah collect coins by jumping (which is done by tapping the screen). You can also double jump by double tapping the screen. That’s not all though. Along with the coins you also get obstacles such as birds amd rotating spiked poles. Hitting these would mean the end of the game, so the general rule of thumb is to avoid them. Obstacles in the air aren’t the only thing to be worried about though. The ground has a few surprises lined up as well. These come in the form of gaps which you must jump over in order to get to the other side. If you fail to jump, or jump too early or too late, you run the risk of falling into that gap and drowning, Again, not something we want to do.
I would be lying if I said that the game wasn’t addictive. Even now, as I type this article, I find myself taking a small break to indulge in a bit of Devil Run. It certainly will keep you occupied for a while if you’re bored or you just want to pass the time.
I decided to show the game to my cousin, who also admitted that the game looked fun and the both of us spent almost an hour just sitting in our living room, trying to beat each others high scores.
If you’re on the lookout for a new game to spend time on and also have a knack for quick thinking, then this is indeed a game you should check out. Simple, yet immersive gameplay coupled with good music and good graphics means you’ll end up spending more time than you expected trying to beat your friends’ high scores. The developers have also added an Achievements section to make sure you spend your time with the devil!
We applaud Aeshian on a job well done and we look forward to their next titles as well.If you’re interested in trying Fluffy out, you can download it on the Google Play Store.
