Gingerbread men are well known to be cute and quite tasty, but I bet you didn’t know they’re fast. Oven Break is a new game from Com2uS that shows you just how fast a Gingerbread man can run as he tries to run, jump, and slide his way to safety away from the witch’s oven. Oven Break is a very simple running game that will put your reflexes to the test. I only say simple because the controls are very easy to use; you’ll have one button for jumping and another for sliding. You can do a jump/slide move to get harder to reach jellybeans, but that’s basically it for the controls. As it’s a running game once the stage starts you’re off to the races and your only goal is to make it to the end while grabbing every jellybean you see. There are several different stages in the game that range from training to outer space; there are also objects to collect and a shop if you want to buy a few extras. The shop prices are very reasonable which is always nice to see as some companies (not naming names) go way over the top with the whole in-app purchasing thing.
I’ve never been a huge fan of running games, but Temple Run and now Oven Break are starting to change that. The cartoonish graphics of Oven Break really work well within the game, and it’s a blast to play. I tried it out on my Galaxy S and new Asus Transformer Pad 300; it ran like a champ on both devices and is a great way to kill a little time. If you’re in the mood for some quick fun I highly advise you to check this one out. You can pick up Com2uS’s Oven Break for free on Google Play.
