This is a platform game in which the player investigates and tracks the location of the Golden Fox’s stolen treasures. So the character has to run on different places to gather as many lost jewels as possible, completing missions in as little time as possible. This is a pretty agile fox, so the user has to learn as best as possible to control it and perform a better game.
In spite of sticking to its genre, Fast like a Fox has a little something that makes it special and innovative: its gameplay.
In most games the character is always moving, but in this app things are a bit different. The character will only move if you tap your fingers on the back of your phone and the faster you tap, the faster the fox will move; instead you can make the fox jump by tapping on the screen.
