App Review: “Moana Rhythm Run”

Have you heard the rhythm of the sea calling? Well, even if you’ve only heard the rhythm of the new songs from Disney’s Moana, you are sure to enjoy this new app!

In Moana Rhythm Run, play as Moana and learn more about her story through picture and song as you run, jump, and use her spear to run through obstacles, featuring songs from the movie. The game is simple: don’t hit more than three obstacles in one level or else you are taken back to the last level you achieved.

2-13Upon starting the game, it prompts you that game play will be easier and more enjoyable if you enable sound. Foolishly, I figured I would multi-task and turn off the sound while I was listening to other things. I strongly encourage turning up the sound with this game! Not only do you get to hear the awesome soundtrack that accompanies the movie, the beats are lined up with the jumps and obstacles, which makes it easier to play.

3-11

Overall, this game is ridiculously addicting! I keep finding myself going back and trying to beat more levels just so I can hear more of the songs from the movie. Some are very catchy, but my favorite so far has to be Moana’s song “How Far I’ll Go”. If you haven’t heard this yet, play the game to hear it — I promise you’ll be going back to hear it over and over.
