Updated on October 8th at 12:55: It turns out The Trip is also available on the Google Play Store. It's just as free as it is on iOS, and you can grab it via this link [download].

Original story follows...


The Trip is a pretty simple endless runner with a couple of tricks up its sleeve. It's also free, and it looks lovely, so you don't really have anything to lose by giving it a go.

You control a little camper van that's scooting across a hand-drawn landscape. Tapping makes you jump. At least it does to start with. Crystals fall from the sky and grabbing them changes what your tap does.

You might get a power-up that lets you extend into the air on a spring-like structure, or one that lets you fly, Flappy Bird-style, for a little while.

It adds a bit of a frisson to proceedings, and means you need to be on your toes because your van can change into something new at any time.

There's a bit of frustration threaded through proceedings, but for a free game, you can't really complain. The Trip is worth a look if you're after a new endless runner that does things slightly differently.
