King’s pursuit to create “the Crashiest Crash game ever” | Pocket Gamer.biz

A mobile adaption of a popular character that initially debuted on console can typically arrive with a number of caveats. It’s a port of an older game. The interface has not been configured precisely right for the mobile interface. It’s just a ‘cash grab’. These are several of the common criticisms that more often than not are rightly lobbied at companies for looking to take advantage of the lucrative market. Swedish mobile giant King, however, looks to break this trend with Crash Bandicoot: On the Run, the first mobile game…
