But today I'd like to introduce Madcoaster. Madcoaster doesn't ask much of its players in terms of the controls. You simply tap the screen to jump, and swipe downwards to transition from higher levels back to the ground floor. But it does ask a lot of its players once the game starts dropping in birds that can be hit for points, or when you stumble on the rows and rows of coins to be collected.
Though the music is nowhere near as impressive as a similar game like Canabalt, Madcoaster makes up for this with fun, changing themes. One minute you'll be leaping in seeming unison with whales through glacial rivers, and the next minute you'll be in a more tropical and tribal setting leaping to catch blowfish.
It's a little on the kiddie side, but it's a fun ride regardless. Particularly if you're just looking for a simple distraction.
