Let's try it out just once more...I see you're already addicted!

Was a bit reluctant at first to get it, but now I'll definitely buy it, good review.

That is the most AWESOME part of any game. Seeing the character get slaughtered, shredded, burned, crushed or stretched apart!!! :D

hahahahaaa. For sure. It just surprised me because the game initially seems like a Crash Bandicoot type of thing then buddy gets sliced open... Nice :D. Now I want to play COD.

Looks like a nice game but the only thing that really pisses me off about my playbook is you have to pay for most of the good games, wheras its free on my wifes samsung. Hope bb10 is gonna have FULL android game access.
Playbook, the one and only

awesome game... great grafics... not too easy, but not impossible... love all the upgrades you can make...

From what I saw in the video the game is very hard. I don't know if it's a good idea to kill Fred on the fist blow. This could be frustrating.
It could have a health bar and some refills along the way. I guess I pass this one for now

James maybe you should do 30-60 secs on each mode in the game for your quick looks at new games!

Sometimes it just feels like watching you play instead of actually helping us to consider whether its worth our money or not!!

Cheers man

I've had blackberries for about 7 years now... Do ANY of you remember apps when they were $30 and up?!... You cheap fucks... You spend more on coffee in the morning. ONE DOLLAR!!!!!. Do you know how pathetic you sound?

I purchased the Running Fred game for the G-Baby. He got the Playbook, within 2 minutes I had 4 charges to my Credit Card. 1. $1.07 for the game. 2. $32.46 for 150,000 Skullies. 3. $5.40 for 15,000 Skullies. 4. $5.40 for 15,000 Skullies.
Does this mean he can charge to my App world on the Playbook anytime? I had to put my password in to purchase the Game, then I guess he was playing it and kept pressing Buy, Buy, Buy.
Thank God, for text and email alert on my Credit Card. immediately Un-installed the game, and declined the chargeses for the extras. Why did it not ask for a password? If I re-install the game, can this happen again?
