That "just one more time" mantra will be in your head on repeat as soon as you delve intoMad Aces, a deceptively simple game that finds you hurtling through blocks, avoiding obstacles, and changing up your "Aces" as quickly as you burn through your in-game currency.
...And they're off!
There's very little fanfare to Mad Aces.You simply choose a character and control scheme and the next thing you know, you're hurtling through a colorful area smashing through a bunch of black boxes.
You can smash through them in one of three different lanes, but as soon as you run into a spiked box it's game over. At that point, you'll have to start from the very beginning.
It's extremely simple to pick up and learn but will take a while to master, as you'll have to rely on very quick reflexes.
Those crazy Aces
Mad Aces gives you a decent amount of in-game currency to play around with, but if you want to unlock additional characters sooner you can purchase them with actual cash.
It's worth checking out the other characters though - especially when they're a rainbow unicorn or an adorable pig.
The bottom line
Mad Aces is an addictive endless runner that gets you up and started quickly and has plenty of replay value.
In fact, it's incredibly difficult to put down - even if you've got something more pressing to do.
