Danger Dash is like Temple Run, but it has better graphics. If Danger Dash had come out before Temple Run, then Danger Dash would have been just as popular. There are a few extra gameplay elements in this game, such as power-ups, and the aesthetic is not as dreary as Temple Run.
Unlock new characters
Danger Dash allows you to collect coins and unlock new characters. It means there is a point to collecting coins beyond getting a high score. The different characters you unlock do not have any different abilities, but they look different, which is part of the fun. Just like with Temple Run, you have to jump, slide, and move from left to right. The game does seem to have a lag problem between your action and the protagonist’s action, but you can get around that fact by anticipating dangers and jumping the gun (acting slightly too early) so that your character moves at the correct time.
Better Than Temple Run
Temple Run was popular, but it had a dank and dreary aesthetic, it had poor quality graphics when compared to today’s games, and the cornering system was too merciless. None of these problems are present in Danger Dash. The aesthetic is bright and suitably varied, and the game has a dynamic feel to it that is similar to the Sonic 3D games. The game is not merciless, and the cornering system is not as brutal or ugly. Danger Dash feels unfinished in places, such as if you turn off the sound, you can still hear certain sound effects, which means you have to turn your device’s volume down to truly play the game quietly.
