The Disney app called Monster, Inc. Run came out a week before the updated Monsters Inc. 3D movie, and has been a top selling iPhone and iPad game ever since. This Disney app challenges you to run through 3 worlds in a very fast-paced platform runner game featuring the Mike and Sully characters from Monsters Inc., other playable monster teams, power-ups, and endless gameplay! The original Disney movie Monsters Inc., has always been one of my Disney favorites starring Mike Wazowski and James P. Sullivan (a.k.a. Sully). The original movie revolves around a funny storyline about the secret monster industry of scaring little children. Disney being Disney, are fully integrated into “new media” and take advantage of all relevant avenues of marketing — to include apps. The Disney app Monsters Inc. Run was released exactly 1 week before the 12/19/12, release of Monsters Inc. 3D, and the Disney app has been a huge success in the iTunes App Store ever since.
This “endless runner” platform game is very fast paced and you play as 1 of 4 monster teams, as reflected in the Monster Inc. movie plot. You start off with Mike and Sully and by leveling up you will unlock other monster teams like Lenny and Phlegm, and others. There are lots of coins to collect, power-ups to use on the enemy monsters, special platforms like trap doors, trampolines, fast launcher, and more. There are 2 game modes, level gameplay that includes 3 game packs (Monstropolus Rooftops, Jungle Ruins, and Ice Cave, with more game packs coming), and endless gameplay for me was only reflected as the Monstropolus Rooftop game pack. Your objective in Level gameplay is to collect 3 items (sock, beach ball and teddy bear), finish as fast as you can, collect as many coins as you can, and don’t croak/die (or you’ll be no more). The Endless gameplay is just that, go as far as humanely possible for a high score.
The Monsters Inc. Run Disney app sells for only $0.99 and works on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad devices. This app is absolutely family friendly and has a reasonable in app purchase (IAP) model that is not overly aggressive. In normal person terms, you do not need to spend any extra money to play this game, buy power-ups or purchase other monster teams, but you can if you are impatient. All you have to do to save some cash is keep on playing the game to earn coins.
Monsters Inc. Run is one of my all time favorite Platform Endless Runner games because it has so much stuff going on. There are lots of whacky power-ups, and the feature of switching between the Mike (the little monster) or Sully (the Big monster) characters makes the Monsters Inc. Run, Disney app, a whole lot of fun to play.
