So, why have gamers been comparing it to the delicious Kenyan dish, kuku paka? Well, let's think about. Everyone knows that the perfectly blended spices of the curry sauce with coconut flavor is enough to make you jump through hoops. On top of that, the juicy chicken surprise that gets added to it and then poured all over a bed of rice makes for the perfect combination.
Well, Out Run Epic is kind of like this dish. It's the perfect blend of characteristics that haven't been incorporated into any other app. Let's start with the storyline. Two teenagers are home alone and starting to get a little too close when an angry dad walks through the door. The boyfriend is so focused on finding a way out of the situation, that he jumps out the window and takes off down the street with the dad chasing after him.
Now, during the course of this chase, these characters are ducking and dodging traffic signs, oncoming traffic and even little kids on skateboards. The gamer, seeing all the coins ahead, is going to try to get as many as possible so that they can purchase a few upgrades. It's during this time that the developer decides to help them out a bit. If the gamer runs into a magnet, then the coins are actually drawn to him/her. No longer are they running into things to try and get as many coins as they can, but the magnet takes care of that for them.
After receiving enough coins to hopefully be able to purchase an upgrade, the offers seem endless. For instance, are you tired of running? Purchase a bolt pack to get you sailing through the skies or a nifty scooter to get you zipping and zooming through the roads of the city. If that doesn't work, you can always switch characters.
Beth and Christian are the basic characters that Development Innovations have incorporated into Out Run Epic, but there are 6 more fun characters to choose from. Are you more of thinker and like to analyze situations before pursuing them? Why not purchase Serious Guy? He's one of the favorites. Are you more of a jock who loves getting attention for being the best? Why not go with Armon the Jock of Prep High? With his mohawk and football in hand, he's sure to give you the gaming experience that you've been waiting for.
With so many different features incorporated into this app, it seems that social media would only be the icing on the cake. That's right. Gamers will have the chance to not only collect coins by signing into their Twitter and Facebook pages, but they will also get the chance to post their high scores to their Facebook walls as well. What makes this so great is that gamers have the chance to challenge their friends. No one wants to be known as the loser who can't get enough points, so this is a great way to muster up some competition between the gamers.
So, in the meantime, while many are comparing Out Run Epic to kuku paka, remember one thing. The perfect blend is only achieved when the perfect ingredients come together...
