Are you a parkour fanatic? Jumping from one roof-top to the next is cool – just so long as you ignore all the failed attempts that often end in painful situations you definitely won’t be posting on YouTube… Ok, you’ll probably still post it but that’s beside the point!
If you’d like to experience parkour for yourself without putting your actual physical life on the line, Run Race(by Good Job Games) is a game you may just want to check out.
Set on aobstacle course made up of walls, ledges, and things you can climb, Run Race is essentially a 3 lap parkour race where the last person to cross the finish line is systematically eliminated until only the winner is left standing – or dancing as is the case in this game.
Played by tapping on the screen of your device in order to jump, Run Raceallows you to jump and double jump, as well as jump from one wall to the next like Spider-Man or Mario.
I just referenced Spider-Man and Mario in the same sentence… ew… 🤢
As you progress through the game, the levels will presumably become increasingly more challenging until you reach the point in which it becomes too difficult and you give up.
Fortunately for us, the game is well balanced, leaning slightly more toward the easier side of things which is great for players who are still trying to work out how the game works – or players who just take longer to get used to things.
We once played a game based on essentially the exact same concept that would crush new players which, as you can imagine, isn’t great…
If you like skill based games that can be played with minimal skills, Run Race 3D is actually a really solid option because the difference between you coming first or you coming last is solely dependant on when you time your taps.
Skills are everything!
