Sky Dancer is a cloaked, pony-tailed person who levitates until you decide to take him out for a spin on decidedly dangerous paths. The design of the game is beautiful and that is the reason why the game might lag a bit if you have an older phone. Overlooking that one minor fault, this game really creates a place for itself in the overcrowded runner genre. This game is as much about running as it is about falling.
Like a lot of games, the path here hangs in the air with the standard three positions of centre, left and right available on the path to run on. However, unlike other games it is also possible to fall off the edges into the yellow abyss below. Here’s where you have to guide the character’s fall and make it land on one of the paths visible below. The landscape is quite desolate and brings to mind certain scenes based on a desert planet in Star Wars. A weak sun shines in the distance and it seems like that is the destination for your mysterious protagonist. There are a number of different landscapes that can be unlocked, all equally desolate and beautiful at the same time. The paths are strewn with rocks and break off into fragments pretty often.
There are also coins and trophies scattered across levels which can be exchanged for new characters. When you fall off, there is a warning which reads “Be careful. This game is dangerous”. If everything that has been written about it does not give you an idea of what this game is like, that on screen warning definitely will. The game has a few bugs, even apart from the lagging issue and you might find yourself falling through platforms as the game obstinately refuses to acknowledge basic physics. Though not entirely perfect, the game is a whole lot of fun to play. So go on, become a sky dancer.
