Buddy & Me | beautiful Jump and Run game for kids
✔ iPad + iPhone ✔ Android ✔ Kindle Fire | child-friendly app | for ages 7+ years
Buddy & Me by Sunbreak Games is a new Jump and Run game with a little boy and his yellow magical creature named Buddy, whose graphical presentation is especially beautiful. The app developers recommend the app for the ages 9+ years, we think that even kids who are a little younger (7+) could have a lot of fun with Buddy and Me too. By the way, Buddy and me is not only available for iPad and iPhone, it will soon be available for Android and Kindle fire too.
A child-friendly endless runner
Buddy and Me is not a jump and run game with level endings, but a so called endless runner, which means, the little boy runs and jumps through a magical world where treehouse-inspired obstacles, curious critters, and natural wonders await him and Buddy, until sooner or later – time’s up. We personally prefer jump and run games with several levels and different world’s, whereby endless runners have one advantage: The navigation is a lot easier and limited to a finger-touch control, to let the little boy jump at the right moment from one platform to another.
Very important for the success in the game: The boy can also perform a double jump and use his jacket as a paraglider.
This endless runner is also child-friendly because there is no game over if the boy falls down, but instead his big friend Buddy will catch him if he falls and he can continue with the running. Nevertheless, the bar with the stars but also the time will get less each time he falls. On your way through the gorgeous landscapes and environment, you get to collect extras on a regular basis which can extend your playing time. Besides, you can also collect rabbits which fly after Buddy and will also credit a few seconds to your time account. However, no matter how hard you try, sooner or later the alarm clock will ring and the little nameless boy will wake up from his beautiful dream.
The helpful Buddy
Buddy is a cute and funny looking creature, who will constantly accompany you throughout the game. It’s one special feature that Buddy is always a helping hand alongside of you. So he offers you his big round tummy as a trampoline for particularly large chasms, or he offers you his dangling tail as a vine. It is also great fun when Buddy gives the little boy a piggyback and both fly through a bonus passage to collect even more stars.
Delightful graphics and sounds
The awesome graphics are just simply overwhelming and definitely deserves a massive praise. We also really like the animations and characters of the app. The atmospheric music does get sabotaged by the sharp sounds of the star coins a little. As you’ll constantly be collecting star coins, the beautiful music does get lost in all of the collecting noises and this will lead us to quickly reduce the volume.

Buddy and Me app rating
Even if we’re not great fans of endless runner games, we did get inspired and enchanted by this awesome and outstanding game. However, this game could offer a little more alternation. We’re missing new landscapes which can be reached and would also be nice for a change. We also got to mention the fact that the app developers do have a lot of ideas up their sleeves yet and will add these to the game, one at a time. They also mentioned in an interview, that the collected stars can soon be spent on objects. We hope that the app will still be in-app free by then and will therefore stay child-friendly.
(+) outstanding graphics
(+) beautiful music
(+) helpful Buddy as an innovative gameplay element
(+) upgrades have been announced
(-) Sound of the star coins drowns the actual music and is too loud
(-) not enough landscapes for alternation
