What is Mr. Drive Runner?

Mr. Drive Runner, also known as Wheels on Wheel, is an endless driving game in which the player must avoid obstacles while racing around in a circle. As you drive around you can pick up animals that can act as a shield or be sent off to space. While you don’t need to worry about running into the edges of the map, one collision with a tree will mean game over, giving the game some difficulty. Steering is handled with a single tap, one tap sends you left while tapping again sends you right as you go around the circle. While you race around in this low-poly endless runner, you can collect coins and unlock one of over a dozen different vehicles. Mr. Drive Runner also features a co-op mode, where two players play on one device. Each player controls his or her vehicle by tapping on their side of the screen.

Recommendation

Perhaps at the end of the day, Mr. Drive Runner is like many other endless runners. You will either like it and play it for a while, or play it for a few minutes and uninstall it and forget about it. The controls work well enough, the low-poly graphics are quite nice, there is some visual variety both in terms of vehicles and obstacles, and there really isn’t much to dislike about this game. The problem is that there is not a whole lot to like either. It’s still worth a look if you’re looking for a game to play in short-bursts, but it is far from being a must play. The same device co-op mode is a nice feature, and if you’re looking for something to try playing with a friend, I would recommend giving it a try. Just be aware that having two people holding one device can be quite awkward.
