I thought about Sonic when I was checking out Talking Tom Gold Run, a newly updated game that puts the same high-speed action on mobile devices. Like the athletes in the Summer Olympics, Talking Tom is running for the gold. In this case, he’s chasing a robber who stole a truck loaded with gold bars.
In the latest update to the Talking Tom franchise, which has racked up more than 4.5 billion downloads, players can unlock seven different worlds, including a city, woodlands, and a beach. New building upgrades, characters and running segments become available as the work on each character’s house progresses.
The game is the latest release from Outfit7, a Slovenia-based studio that produces family-friendly apps that are certified by PRIVO, an FTC approved COPPA safe harbor program. Talking Tom Gold Run is available as a free download in the iTunes App Store, the Google Play Store, the Windows App Store and the Amazon App Store.
