There are a few things that endless-runners need to do well if they're going to work. Their controls need to be smooth and responsive, their engines need to run without a judder, and they need to make sure you can see enough of the road ahead to react quickly to oncoming obstacles.
Last Knight manages to mess up all three of these prerequisites. It's a shame, because there's an interesting and novel endless-runner under all the problems, but you're likely to be too frustrated to stick around long enough to find it.
The game casts you as a podgy little knight on a podgy little horse who's careening through a fantasy mediaeval world. It's your job to steer through the obstacles, joust with the bad guys, and score as many points as you can.
While there might be flashes of a decent game, more often than not Last Knight is disappointing
