    "As a winter person, I love actual snowboarding. This visually compelling game really brings the slopes to life for me. The controls are responsive, and I just love the music and sound in general. Though the game has the occasional crash, it's still a great addiction."

    "My friend texted me the other night saying I should try out this game. I was hesitant because I didn't need any more games on my phone, but I usually try out anything once. I started playing and before I knew it, an hour had gone by. It was so much fun slicing through fruit, feeling like a ninja. I felt like I had special powers or something. It was so cool. If I hadn't of looked up from my screen I wouldn't have realized what time it was and that I had to go to bed. Love it."

    "This game is super cute but it becomes boring after a few levels. It's not that challenging and it has an end to it. The graphics and great and maybe others like it better, but I tried this game a couple years ago and was just disappointed."

    "Excellent game to waste time on. Basic side scrolling with nuanced gameplay with the jetpack. A good game to play while on the can or waiting for things to happen with friends. Also a pretty good queue game when waiting for matches in Overwatch."
