    Shine Runner's review

    Published: 2011-12-05, by .

    Shine Runner is a mad speedboat race game

    • Cool 3D graphics
    • Smoothly
    • Entertaining
    • Fluctuating market on river stuff
    • There's no a Lite version

    "Rush & money in a wild river"

    You embody a country bumpkin that owns a speedboat and who uses it to make money. How does he make it? By grabbing bags of money that he finds on the river or by selling other river stuff like crawdads, catfish, peter pep, gator tails, snake oils, tobacky and shine. All that products are on a stock market and it price fluctuates. Try to buy cheap and sell expensive to make even more money.

    The 3D graphics are really good and we've noticed any lag. It runs smoothly. The controls are quite simple: just use your thumbs to tap the left or right side of the screen to steer the speedboat. Try to catch as many money bags as you can as well as the other stuff you will find on the river. Likewise, try to overtake the other hicks and be the first on finishing the race: you'll get time bonus too. Police boats will try to catch you: escape from them!

    You can share your scores on online leaderboards provided by Openfeint.

    Shine Runner has been developed by Vector Unit, a developer who has also launched a successful title: Riptide GP. The only catch of this game is that there isn't a lite version or demo to try it before purchasing the paid version. Users appreciate that. Anyway, it's highly recommendable.

    "Shine Runner would be completely ridiculous if it weren't so amazing."
    - Kotaku

    "With high quality games such as these, Android's future in gaming looks bright."
    - Droid Gamers

    "What really makes Shine Runner so much fun is the fully-destructive environment. You can literally destroy anything and everything that gets in your path."
    - Android Police

    "A high flying, moonshine money making, backwoods bayou bonanza."
    - Android Guys

    Throw your flat-bottomed fanboat into high gear and slip and slide through the muddy waters of the backwoods bayou. Smash and crash through a destructible world filled with rickety swamp shacks, fishin’ boats, chicken coops, gators, and more. Pack your cargo hold to the brim with moonshine, tobacky, snake oil and other contraband and then sell ‘em to the highest bidder in a rampagin’ 10-day race for profit and glory. Just make sure you keep an eye out for Smokey–the more notorious you get, the more cops will come gunnin’ for you.

    From the same team that brought you critically acclaimed jet ski racer Riptide GP, and the free to play Beach Buggy Blitz!


    Power slide through twisting rivers with the most realistic boat physics ever seen on mobile.

    Crash through docks stacked high with barrels. Demolish shacks and outhouses. Punt gators and chickens. If you can see it, you can smash it!

    Buy and sell contraband goods like Moonshine and Tobacky, smuggling them from one colorful locale to the next in a race for maximum profit.

    Explore a colorful southern world filled with high-detail boats, animated characters, beautiful bayou, marsh, and mountain environments, all running at a silky smooth framerate on your smartphone or tablet – or on your HDTV with HDMI out.

    In addition to tilt/touch controls, you can play using your Bluetooth/USB gamepad or XPeria Play slide-out controller.

    Make your name in the Leaderboards, backup and sync your game with Cloud Save, and show off your skills with some of the wackiest, most inventive Achievements around!

    I bought this paid app after enjoying the free app on my Shield TV. The compatibility checker showed no issues, and I didn't suspect anything as the free version worked just fine. However, the paid app does not respond to the Shield Controller, and would need an external mouse to navigate the menus. Please update the paid version so that it works as well as the free one. In the meantime, this game is unplayable for me.

    Now this one took awhile to get a grip on, it's crazy fast, but once I got a handle on it, it's fun! You buy & sell with this one, which is so-so, but when your cruising, that's fun, I mean nuts fun! I wish the runs were longer, but all & all, great fun, all on 36 MB! Well worth the purchase. Weakest game of Vector Units lineup.

    Vector unit.... just charge me already. Everything I've played of yours right down to hydro thunder on xbla has been gold. That's all, I'm happy I can be excited for a company new release again. Oh and shine runner is fun.

    I liked the free version so much, I bought this premium version. Not only are the ads gone, but you get an extra 10 units of storage space. What's more, Shine Runner premium supports custom gamepad button mapping, and even has keyboard support. Perfect!
