Ice Gold run is a ridiculously addictive free game available in the Apple app store for free. In this game, you endlessly run in the quest of Gold on the ice of Greenland as an Eskimo. It is fast paced multiplayer running game where you have to save your life while crossing the obstacles and arctic cliffs, and collecting as many gold coins as possible.
Being primarily a fun game, the learning quotient of the game is not very high but a good way of introducing your kid to an Eskimo with the animated glimpses of Greenland.
This is not the first game of its kind in this genre. But it’s an addictive and engaging game which gives you enough chills and make you look out for the next obstacle. Since the race continues until and unless you die, kids will love to indulge with this fun game.
The gaming experience and graphics are reasonably good. However, when you play the game in multiplayer format, you can have endless fun and astonishing gaming experience.
While ads are an important way to monetize an app, they are always tricky in an app that kids use. The ads show up after the ‘Start’ is clicked. This led to few unexpected clicks. Maybe an in-app version to buy an option for no ads would be great.
There is very tight integration of Social Media with the game for multi-player format. Ideally it should not be so in games aimed at kids. Though these can be tucked away in a separate section.
Overall, it’s a nice game set in the backdrop of freezing cold climate of Greenland which makes it unique and worth playing.
