Welcome to Dapan Rikujo 2012, where you step into the shoes of Dapan the panda, who's got his eyes on the stars. Your goal? Become the bestest running panda and represent Earth in the Galaxy Track Games (whatever those are)!
All this plus irresistibly cute panda motions and funny sounds make this a fun time waster!
Tap the panda pad buttons on the screen to make Dapan run!
And that's it. That's all you do in this game.
Each time you tap Dapan's paws, he lets out a cute little panda yelp. Get his yelping in a rhythm and run as fast as you can!
Tap! Tap like you've never tapped before! Outrun the other pandas!
Be sure to wait until the "GO" or else you'll be hit with a false start.
The faster you tap, the faster Dapan runs. Just tapping them randomly won't work though; you have to alternate between the two, just like with real feet. Dapan will take a tumble if you don't tap properly.
He looks pretty funny when he falls over; I mess up on purpose just to see him eat it.
Sometimes, however, the game is prone to freezing, which can get really annoying. If, when you're playing, the game starts to feel slow, it might be time to run another Dapan app Sakusaku for Android.
The game is split up into levels and also has a time attack mode. It's pretty basic, yet dangerously addictive. If you play on the train, there's a good chance you'll miss your station.
Your race results get ranked when you finish, so you can aim to constantly improve your times.
What? Your battery is running out from playing too much? Dapan to the rescue in Setsuden Nagamochi Battery! If you use up your phone's battery on the train on your way to work, you'll be in quite a pickle.
A game this easy to play is easy to learn for all types of gamers. Dapan is a really cute character, so even kids are sure to enjoy making him race.
