Running Fred

Enjoy playing this game at the Comfort of your Home !

Running Fred is much larger in scope than its predecessor and ditches that game’s arcadey ‘how far can you fall’ mechanic in favor of a fully 3D, level-based auto running/platforming schtick. Think an infinitely more psychotic rendition of Temple Run and you’re more or less on the right track. Naturally, the aim of the game is simply to make it from each stage’s start point to its exit in one piece. However, a formidable array of whirring blades, lava pits, gaping chasms, beds of spikes, and miscellaneous other death-traps stand between you and success. As our hero dashes headlong through crazy, cavernous levels with the grim reaper himself hot on his heels, your job is to duck and weave around deadly obstacles and collect as many silver and gold coins as possible. Ultra-responsive tilt controls handle movement, while tapping the screen allows you to pull off jumps and double-jumps.

game review

Running Fred is in addition to the main ‘Adventure Mode’, there’s also a super-addictive ‘Survival Mode’ and a series of bonus challenges to enjoy. All in all, taking into account that it’s free, this is a pretty unmissable package. I’m actually really excited to see where the imaginative folks at Dedalord take Fred next, as there’s most definitely plenty of life left in this franchise. A more fully-fledged 3D platformer is the most obvious follow-up, but something like a SAW-inspired puzzler, a kart-racer (Racing Fred, anyone?), or a WarioWare-esque collection of sick ‘n’ twisted mini-games could also work really well.
