Keep it Burning: an endless runner Olympic Style – Review

Keep it Burning is an endless runner wherein players are an Olympic like torchbearer. With a simple scroll of your thumb the goal is to avoid obstacles and oncoming thugs from diminishing your torch. Three flames represent health, which when hit, will deplete your life. Don’t fret, as there is ways to restore health along the way with additional boosts as well.

keep it burningScattered across the streets are random power ups ranging from health drops, police armor, and time delays and speed-ups. There’s always a bounty of items, which make runs more appealing than a lot of other endless runners. That said gameplay is rather passive. Controls are responsive, but no matter where I put my thumbs on my iPhone, I found it obscured the view. Because of this I found the game a tad too easy to get a high score and sustain a run especially after upgrading items.

Diamonds and coins are sprinkled across Keeping it Burning as well. Three diamonds lets you continue off where you died whereas coins upgrade the aforementioned items named the clocks and police armor, which lengthens their effects. It takes a lot of grinding just to upgrade one item no matter how good you are as power ups are way more plentiful than currency.

keep it burningIt’s a free to play game where the balance asks players to pony up money. Even without upgrades, again, it’s pretty easy with practice, eliminating any craving to spend real cash, or to even grind for coins. On that same note there are ad pop-ups, but they’re only stationary and can be skipped with a simple click. And if that craving should manifest itself, there are ways to earn currency via trailers as well.

Keep it Burning is a fun endless runner with a cute aesthetic. Gaining power ups and racing past enemies is a blast, albeit a brief one. The free to play trappings and ease of difficulty doesn’t make it a sustainable game to keep by your side. You may feel the itch to do a run every now and again, but other than that, it’s nothing special in the vast array of endless runners out there.
