Run 3 was published on June 5, 2014, by Player 03, and is still being updated. There are currently more than 20 playable side tunnels, 309 levels (367 including minigames), published and playable, and 59 levels which are unreleased but may be playable in future updates, 44 of which are in tunnels which have not been released yet. As of 2021, the Flash version of Run 3 will likely not receive any updates because of Adobe Flash Player's shutdown back in 2020. Therefore some sites like Player 03's beta on his website, CoolmathGames.com, and Poki host the HTML5 version of the game. Some people such as Cynthia have even gone as far as to make a complete remake of the Flash game to where everyone can play it without flash, which contain bugs but new features and returning ones such as Infinite Mode.
Currently, player_03 is making his own game engine, Runaway3D, to suit his own development needs. This engine is complete enough to support a remake of Run 1, and a large amount of progress was made in an attempt to reach a November deadline to update mobile with the engine, but this deadline wasn't met and instead Mobile still uses the old engine. Regardless, this new engine will hopefully be usable with Run 3 by Spring 2022, and after that character modelling needs to be done.
Run 3 takes place in a series of tunnels in space. There are ten playable characters, each with their own personalities and abilities.
Run 3 introduces a number of new mechanics not seen in the previous games, including crumbling tiles, ramps, darkness, and the ability to re-enter a tunnel after jumping out. An in-game currency was added as well, called Power cells. Power cells can be used to buy characters and upgrades for various parts of the game in the Shop. The bonuses from Run 2 no longer exist, and boxes no longer appear in the middle of a tunnel. The only exception of floating boxes is in Bridge Building, where boxes are pushed using rings.
There are two main game modes in Run 3; Explore mode and Infinite mode. There are also some other game features, such as the Shop and the Level Editor, while there are also thousands of other levels published by other players made with the Level Editor.
More information on Explore mode can be found on its designated page.
Explore mode is the main attraction of Run 3. It contains the story, as described at the bottom and on this page. Several characters can be unlocked by playing through Explore mode, as well as the Winter and Halloween costumes. The Runner's galaxy map acts as a level hub for Explore mode, displaying all the tunnels and levels that can be explored.
More information on Infinite mode can be found on its designated page.
Infinite mode consists of pre-made levels in random order. Your progress is not saved between levels, so instead, your goal is to finish as many levels in a row as possible. The levels repeat if you travel far enough, so there's no way to win. The main purpose of Infinite mode is collecting power cells, the in-game form of currency. Power cells are used to buy other characters and costumes.
A complete list of Infinite Mode levels can be found in Infinite Mode Gallery, with the levels identified through their designated ID number.
More information about the Shop can be found on its designated page.
In the shop, one can purchase different costumes and boxes, which can affect the Explore Mode and Infinite Mode (you can increase the number of boxes in the levels). You can also unlock different characters, who have special, cool abilities.
You can design your own levels! You can use different types of tiles in this game mode, and you can have the option to test your own level. Every time you playtest your level, the level editor will show your path through the level, allowing you to tweak the levels even more.
You can even change the tile color, the type of tiles, and their size. Moreover, you can make a level set, which means you can string up your levels like a tunnel!
After you playtest it, you can publish it and share it with your friends!
Sadly, after the shutdown of Adobe Flash in late 2020, this feature is no longer available on the sites that are being currently worked on/updated. However, Infinite Mode may return to these sites sometime in the future, all we can do now is wait...
The following is a brief description of the story in Run 3. More information about the story can be found here.
Run 3 was the first game of the Run series to introduce a plot, told mainly through cutscenes.
The aliens leave the Planet to explore the Tunnels, but later discover that the Planet is no longer there. Some of them (led by the Angel) search for a path back, while others (led by the Runner) look for a path to a strange distortion in the distance.
As well as introducing a plot, Run 3 added new characters and gave returning characters more developed personalities. There are ten playable characters, with the Runner being the default character. Other characters can be unlocked by completing certain tasks, and all of them can be bought in the Shop for various amounts of Power Cells.
