Genre: Action

The galaxy's inhabitants have been swamped by crime since the fall of the empire. Being able to find anyone, anywhere has become a highly prized skill. Aiden is a three-armed bounty hunter who must hunt down the most dangerous and elusive cutthroats in the galaxy. Some bounties are rewarded with money, others with valuable information that Aidan can use to find the people who set him on this path – all while getting embroiled in a galaxy-wide conspiracy. Having three arms lets you deal with more enemies at once and makes for a persuasive argument in any scuffle. Use your third arm to perform targeted attacks and throws, manipulate the environment, destroy obstacles, and wreck enemies. Hunt criminals across the fringes of the galaxy, the core worlds, and the ruins of long-gone civilizations. Upgrade your equipment, gain new abilities, grow stronger and destroy anything that stands in your way. Enjoy a complex story interwoven with high-octane gameplay and full of twists and turns that hit as hard as a bounty hunter's third arm!

4.3 / 5.0

Overall They always run is an intriguing example on modern 2-D platformers. Whilst it has minor problems with some of the platforming it does not take away from the atmosphere and aesthetic this game exudes. Whilst not having the most compelling story being very formulaic and told through long text breaks the combat and graphics more than make up for it.

They Always Run decides to work within the comfortable boundary of elements already established in action, adventure and platformer games. This is hardly a bad thing though, because the developers execute these combinations masterfully. The result is an epic narrative, full of combats, engaging events and twists that end with a beautiful plot twist that leaves us wishing strongly for Aiden's journey to continue. The fact this mercenary is too resourceful can weaken the challenges for players who are more demanding, but it's a small issue that the fights' malleability and villains' run-ins easily compensate.
