Run 3: How Can Such A Cool Game Be So Addictive
You’ve probably heard a lot of people talk about Run 3, and especially the great new features in the latest version. If you haven’t played this game before then this guide will give you all the information you need to get started.
For those of you who have played the previous version, you can skip on to the What’s New section and then straight onto playing the game on this site.
Either way, you are going to encounter a jump and run game with features that make sure it really doesn’t get boring. With a large selection of characters with different skills and over 200 different levels available you will be able to fill many hours with this very entertaining game.
So, why don’t you take a look at what it’s all about.
What Is The Game Run 3 About?
The basic story of Run 3 is that there is an alien civilisation that has left their planet to explore tunnels. When they tried to return their planet was gone. This left them with two distinct options. Either find their way back through one set of levels, or further explore and head for a galactic distortion visible in the far distance.
Your task is to control little alien characters as they run through endless tunnels. In these tunnels there are obstacles that you have to avoid. There are also holes in the tunnel, and if you fall into these, your alien will be lost in space.
The aim of the game is for you to get to the end of a tunnel. Each level has numerous different types of tunnels with different levels of difficulty. The further you get along the levels the more difficult and fast the game flow becomes.
As you clear more tunnels and levels you will unlock more characters, skills and upgrade options. Essentially, the more you play the game the more diverse it becomes, so you do not get the boredom effect that can be common with similar games.
What’s The Latest Update About?
In the latest version the makers have added a couple of really cool new features. These include new characters and skills that you can unlock as you complete more levels. In the previous versions you would only be able to unlock new aliens by completing levels.
But now there is the new feature of a game currency. The more you play the game and the more tunnels you complete the more power cells you will earn. These can then be spent in the game to unlock upgrades and additional characters. Having more aliens available with different skills gives you many different ways to play every one of the 200 plus levels available.
There are also some changes to the game play itself. Obstacles that you have to get around have become a bit more difficult. They now include falling objects in the tunnels and also black outs. Some parts of tunnels will suddenly become dark and you have to guess a bit where you are heading.
Finally, the game is now also available as a mobile app. If you do look for it on the various app stores you will have to look for Run mobile. The mobile version does not include the version number 3. However, the best way to play this game is directly in your web browser.
What Skills Does It Take?
The game is all about reaction and timing. In the very first levels it will all seem very easy and simple. But you will quickly notice that the speed and difficulty rapidly increase.
The faster you can react and even predict certain obstacles the better you will become at avoid the holes in the tunnels.
Two Unique Game Modes
There are two game modes available that you can use for different goals.
In this mode you will be presented with an endless run of tunnels and levels. There is no way of winning in this mode, which may seem like something you wouldn’t use.
However, there are good reasons to use this mode. Firstly, it is a great way to earn a lot of power cells that you can use for upgrades. Secondly, it is a good way to see some levels that you haven’t yet unlocked in Explore mode.
This is the main game mode where the alien story unfolds and you have the task to help the aliens find their way back. As you complete levels you are able to unlock new ones and also get access to other characters.
It is important to note that in order to save your gameplay you will need to set up a free account. This only takes a couple of minutes, but it is the only way to go back to the game and not start from the beginning again.
