Shortcut Run 2 is a cute and simple pick-up-and-play style racing game, with a bit of a catch! As I started my first race, I simply followed the winding track floating on the water. Noticing that the other racers were picking up planks along the track, I decided that was my key to winning. I thought to myself, water and planks.. hmm. The planks make a bridge that allowed me to cross parts of water, giving me those sweet shortcuts. I wasn't expecting to get lost in time and before I knew it, I had spent a half-hour shortcutting my way to victory! I was pleasantly surprised at the ease of gameplay coupled with the strategy of making shortcuts.
