  • Endless runners are probably the genre most easily approached by game makers on mobile, because they’re so easy to make. Some are ridiculous, few are original and some wrote history. Power Hover is finally a breath of fresh air in the segment and it’s available for free in the Play Store. We played it on the Huawei P9 Lite and had a bit of fun with it.


    Launched in December 2015, the game involves a faceless man, that rides a hoverboard in a desertic scenery. Divided into levels, the game lets you chase a guy that throws grenades at you and gather batteries, in order to juice up parts of a village. You’ll see Dune-like sand worms jumping from the desert and there’s a great variety in level design.

    Levels are quite long and there’s a cinematic feel to this title, that’s also a bit hard. Physics are good and it feels like you really weigh something this time. Controls are quite reasonable and you can ride a halfpipe, avoid a ton of obstacles and even lasers at some point. Graphics are spartan, we get checkpoints to separate the long levels into more “edible portions”.

    Swipe-based controls are quite OK and the game was very fun and challenging. Continuing after you die is done by watching an ad, so our play wasn’t limited. We had a blast and we give the game a 9.1 out of 10. You can get it here.
