You play as a gray space alien running through a tunnel in space. This character is now known to be the Runner; however, at the time, her character wasn't fully established here. The objective is to reach the end of the level and move onto the next one by maneuvering around obstacles like holes. If you fall out of the tunnel, the level restarts. The game starts out with several easy levels, but the difficulty slowly increases as you progress.
When you jump on the wall of a tunnel, you can change gravity and run along it. This is a necessity to complete most levels and might make one level easier.
While being the first game, Run offers a handful of things to do.
Adventure Mode EditTraverse through 50 levels to reach the end of the tunnel. As you progress on either "Normal" or Fast", levels will become more difficult. Completing said mode will unlock the "Intense" difficulty, which is much faster and requires fast reflexes.
Infinite Mode EditRun through randomly generated levels as the difficulty gets higher. Complete 99% to reach infinite. Levels will no longer be more difficult after 99% and can be replayed as many times as you wish.
Edit Mode Edit
Make your own tunnels to share with the world. Change tile color, length of tunnel, and level text. You can also load any shared level you may have found somewhere.
CharactersEditWhen the game was released, the Runner was the only character. On July 2, 2012, seven new character costumes were added for Kongregate members: Student, Lizard, Gentleman, Angel, Skater, Caveman and Zombie. The first five of those later became characters in Run 3. Other than the Skater, the costumes don't affect gameplay and are simply cosmetic. Only Runner, Student, and Caveman are unlocked at the start, while you unlock the rest in Adventure mode, on levels 5 (Lizard), 10 (Gentleman), 20 (Zombie), 30 (Angel), and 50 (Skater).
Run is available on most web browsers that support the latest version of Flash. It can be found on any flash game website, but most content, like bonus costumes and browsing edited levels won't be available. Though you can still load shared Level IDs.
