Things could be changing for me though, as it looks like Crash Bandicoot is coming to mobile – which admittedly isn’t great – and by all accounts, that will be cheaper than buying a PS4 game.
I’ve got to be honest, I very rarely get involved in a mobile game. I’ll download one, play it a bit until my phone gets too hot to hold, notice I’ve lost more than half of my battery, and then I’ll never open it again.
Despite that, I for some reason won’t delete the game?
Anyway, according to leaks, Crash Bandicoot will be coming to your mobile phone, in the form of an endless runner game, similar to Temple Run. Yeah, not great.
The leak appears to be from facebook ads, prematurely advertising the game made my King; the people behind Candy Crush.
Essentially, you’ll be constantly running as Crash, swiping from left to right to avoid TNT, collect fruit and bash through crates, with jump, slide, spin and surf functionalities.
The additions of things like Blaze Pods and Serums seem to be a way of sneakily introducing in-app purchasing, which is never welcome, but seems to be the way with modern gaming; especially in the world of handheld.
Honestly, Crash Bandicoot is a fox, isn’t he? He’s definitely not a bandicoot. This is what a bandicoot looks like…
And this is what Crash Bandicoot looks like…
He’s a fox. He just is.
It’s just a shame that Crash Fox is a terrible name.
