Blood Runner [rating: 3/5]
Blood Runner by Fun On Your Cell is an addictive vampire platform game. You play the blood thirsty vampire trying to keep alive. You have ten seconds left of your life and to live any longer you need to find blood to quench your thirst and extend your life.
Search the castle corridors and dungeons in search of droplets of blood. You will find them everywhere around the building. Walk up to them and you will drink it, each extending your life for a little bit longer.
The aim of the game is to collect the blood droplets to keep you alive and find your coffin. Controlling the vampire it is easy, tilt your device to move left or right. To jump just tap the screen anywhere, if you want the vampire to jump up a wall you need to tilt the device in the direction of the wall and tap jump. To keep climbing up the wall keep tapping and you will climb.
You can also slide down walls by again tilting the device in the walls direction. Work your way around the corridors and find your coffin before your time runs out. Each time you collect a droplet of blood it will add a small amount of time.
There will be obstacles in your way to try and stop you getting to your coffin. Walls may only go one way and there might be a few spikes or shooting stakes around waiting for you. Then there is he usual things vampires need to avoid, sunbeams, holy water and wooden stakes.
The game is quite good but I felt right from the beginning it was quite difficult. The first level took several attempts to complete. You can skip levels though but obviously that defeats the whole purpose of working your way through the game. Three levels out of each set of ten are unlocked, the rest you have to unlock.
The game is integrated with OpenFeint so you can compete online with your friends and on the leaderboard collecting achievements as you go. I quite liked the bright pink graphics and the sound effects when collecting the blood droplets reminded me of old retro games.
Blood Runner is certainly an addictive game and one that I enjoyed playing, I would though prefer if the levels were slightly easier at the start.
- Addictive, cute platformer.
- Good graphics
- Too hard at the beginning few levels.
