Agent Dash – Flick, Run & Jump your secret agent in this addictive 3D game
Aug 29, 2012 10:00 AM –
Agent Dash is a stunning and addictive running game from the same developers who brought us Flick Golf Extreme! and Flick Soccer! Borrowing gameplay from Temple Run and utilising the familiar flicking controls, it’s immediately playable and lots of fun to boot. The game develops the genre a little too with the inclusion of secret agent gadgets which can slow down time, shoot things and even involve a jet pack!
Price: Free plus opportunity for in-app purchases
Tested on: HTC One X
Pros & Cons:
- Smooth graphics!
- Easy to play!
- Takes a while to earn enough crystals to make a difference, unless you make in-app purchases.
Agent Dash is a canny continuation of the ‘Flick’ series of games which has spawned some brilliantly playable titles. Full Fat are back with a flicking game which now blends nicely with the 3D running genre we’ve seen a great deal of. Temple Run created quite a splash when released on Android and a similar game Gravity Project was equally impressive. Now you can don the mantle of a secret agent as he runs through levels collecting crystals and defeating evil geniuses.
You can see some real development too- it’s not just a re-hash of a familiar gameplay style. In addition to the running, jumping, turning and sliding consider too shooting (always an important requirement for any secret agent game). There are various gadgets to acquire such as parachutes and jet-packs so it’s far more than avoiding a load of monkeys. This creates nice variety and is engrossing even if you have previously gotten bored with that Temple Run jungle.
The game is a freemium title, so expect opportunities to boost your inventory with in-app purchases. While these aren’t exclusively necessary, it does take a while to collect enough crystals to buy anything significant. That said, the game is immediately playable, fun and offers a nice twist to the genre.

Accelerometer, Vibration & Sound:
The sound is extremely typical secret-agent fare, without treading too firmly on the toes of the iconic soundtracks of spy films like James Bond. It’s light, fluffy and exciting, which suits the game perfectly.
