Lately, a lot has changed in Apple’s app featuring methods and it’s been a boon for people like me. It’s become real easy to find awesome apps like Le vamp. So lets cut open Le Vamp.

Little Le Vamp has skipped his bed time to go to the outskirts and enjoy some pig blood. This surely has made daddy vampire real mad, but meanwhile, the villagers aren’t amused either. They start chasing him down.

If you have a folder named endless runners, Le Vamp is sure to be a long time neighbour of Temple Run and Subway Surfers. But when I say this, don’t think that Le Vamp is just a traced out version of these games. In fact, they have nothing in common.

To start with, unlike others, we don’t control the hero in the game, but his surroundings. What? Yeah, I can explain. Our little vamp is running the infinite runner and we won’t touch the guy. We touch and manipulate objects around him so that he can have a long and unrestricted run.

All this running surely makes Le Vamp thirsty. Replenish energy by swiping pigs for him to devour but make sure to avoid the garlic pigs. Water slows him down so cut down branches from the tree to make a bridge. Tap on Halloween pumpkins, pull up Spudzies and slash Le Wurst to make way for Le Vamp. Oh, I forgot to mention that Le Vamp is allergic to sunlight or probably you already knew. Make your index finger a shade for Le Vamp and on that note, it is harder than it seems.

Why make your run go to waste when you can pick up some money on the way? Tap the Francs to collect them. Le vamp fits in the recent popular template of completing missions and climbing up in levels, which again awards you Francs. Power ups, charms and clothes can be bought from the inventory using them.

With the amazing animations, fluid controls, sensible gestures and the apt sound effects, Le vamp is the best as it gets. If you love uniqueness and appreciate innovation, Le Vamp is your thing.

Quick Take


Would I Buy Again:Yes

Who Is It For:Endless runner game lovers
