Today's Free App of the Day is Red Ball Run (ad free)
Originally $0.99

This is a endless runner kind of game where you move a red ball back and forth to avoid spiky obstacles and to collect coins. Your farthest point is marked for you to try to beat the next time. The game is played vertically, in one orientation only--it won't rotate 180 degrees.

You control the ball by pressing and holding on the sides of the screen--right side to go right, left side to go left. Releasing centers the ball sharply. My biggest problem was I tended to think, at first, that the ball would stay where I had moved it, and I would release the ball--it would center and I would get spiked! Basically, you move the ball sharply to the right, or sharply to the left, there's not much more steering.

As some of the reviews say, the game could benefit from some variety. And I recommend it be played with the music off, which you can do by tapping on the speaker icon on the main screen. Not bad, especially for free. Three+ stars.

4 of 6 reviews are four stars and above.
