Run games comparison: Which Run game is better and why?

The Run game series hasn’t changed much since the first game came out back in 2008. When compared to Run 3, you can notice only slight changes in the physics engine. The alien creature has remained virtually untouched over the years. The biggest difference between the first Run game and the games that follow is the setup of the levels themselves. All levels in the original game were essentially simple tunnels with 4 walls while the newer versions feature more complex shapes. Word is out that the 5th Run game comes out soon so make sure to bookmark the Run 5 Unblocked website for future reference!

Run games comparison

Run 1 gameplay review ynef.net pictureWhile all of the Run games are essentially 3D infinite runners, there are certain aspects that make each game unique. I already mentioned the original Run game or Run 1 which was released way back. To be fair, it opened the door for a whole new game series, but it really lacks that professional touch.

Run 1 gameplay isn’t all that intuitive and smooth. And while it won’t be a problem for the most part, you’ll feel it immediately when you rotate the level around by jumping on the walls. The game essentially stops for a brief moment and it can become an annoyance when you’re after a more continuous experience.

When compared to Run 2, the music in Run 1 is way better. What the hell were they thinking when they came up with soundtrack for the 2nd game anyway?

Run 2 overview

Run 2 gameplay review ynef.net pictureWhen you play Run 2 you will notice that a lot of the levels don’t have walls around them. Instead you are to navigate the floating platforms and move upside down occasionally in order to progress.

Run 2 can be quite confusing at first because there is no clear path for you. You have to figure out where to jump off in order to rotate the level and land on the ceiling. If you have ever played Kula World on PS1 then you’ll know what to expect from Run 2.

Oh and what’s up with the music? It almost sounds like the developers tried to create 8-bit retro music and failed. Miserably.

Run 3 overview

Dig a little deeper and you’ll find various other perks not present in the previous games.

For example your alien creature moves much more elegantly. The arrow keys as well as the jump key seem to respond a lot better. The overall gameplay feels “cleaner” than in the previous games and I will probably never grow tired of the music present in Run 3.

There are only 3 music tracks available (to my knowledge) but they’re really, really good. One of them seems to use the Cube preset from the Sytrus synth. Which is one of my personal favorites. I used a slightly modified Cube for my latest music track, the Wandering around the 3:12 mark. Go ahead, listen to it!

Conclusion

Run 3 is hands down the best Run game out there. Run 2 tried to be a little different, but in my opinion failed to deliver. And finally Run 1, while mostly suitable for the nostalgia, is still a better choice than the 2nd game.

Run3 Gameplay And Short How To Play Guide

Run3 is an amazing 3D forward running game and a predecessor to Run 4 developed by Kongregate. The game features simple, yet beautiful space-like graphics and the background music is literally out of this world. Because the entire Run game series is one of my personal favorites, the following article might be just a little bit biased. That said, let’s take a closer look into Run 3 and find out what this game is all about. If you are having trouble playing the game, you might want to try the Run 3 Unblocked website.

Run3 Gameplay

Run3 Gameplay running through space ynef review

Run3 is very similar to all the other Run games in the series. The goal of the game is to run forward, avoid obstacles and reach the end of the level. What’s notable in Run3 is the fact that you can choose to run forever. The infinite run feature makes it so the game never ends. Combined with awesome, slightly psychedelic/DNB background music, the entire game looks like one big mind trip.

Highly addictive space game

The fast-paced music along with the immersive and seamless gameplay make Run 3 quite addictive. Oftentimes I would spend hours playing the game when originally I only intended to take a break for about 15 minutes.

Run3 offers numerous hidden levels and various other unlockables like different characters and game modes. And when you consider the infinite run game mode, it isn’t hard to imagine why you would spend way too much time behind this game.

Don’t let the cute little alien creature and very basic game graphics fool you. It’s a serious game where levels get incredibly complex as you venture deeper into the infinite space.

How to play Run 3

The controls are rather simple and consist of only the arrow keys and the space key. Naturally you move the character around using the arrow keys and jump over gaps and other obstacles with the space key.

Additionally you can pull up the menu by pressing the esc key. In the home screen you can take a look at the Galaxy Map which tells you exactly where you are and how far you have progressed. Because the game automatically saves your progress you can come back the next day and continue your journey from where you left off.

Obstacles you should avoid

Run3 Gameplay Running Avoid Breaking Floor ynef review

One of the most annoying obstacles in Run 3 is the breaking floor. These tiles have a grey color with a distinct cracked pattern. Similarly to other games, the breaking floor falls off shortly after you step on it.

What makes it so bad in Run 3 is the fact that if you step on one, all of the other tiles connected to it will start to fall as well. This leaves you with very little room to stand on. Your best chance is to avoid the breaking floor tiles for as long as possible.

In certain levels you will find various blocks and other shapes on the ground. Avoiding these is rather simple, just run past or jump over them.

And just in case you didn’t know, you can walk on the walls as well. Simply move the character against the wall and it will become the new floor as the whole level rotates around you. How cool is that?
