Our funny little penguin wakes up in a test room, but suddenly something goes wrong and everything blows up! And so begins one of the wildest, silliest, and challenging flights in video game history! But who is behind all this? How did our hero arrived there? And why can't our poor little penguin remember anything? Well there's only one way to find out... beat the game!
You must help our penguin hero escape a hellish complex through 24 levels filled with spikes, bombs, robots, traps, and more!
Prepared to die? Just remember one thing... RED is DEATH.
Trailer: Run Run and Die, the Zany Runner!
Run Run and Die may look deceptively cute, but with a title like that we suppose we've only got ourselves to blame for underestimating its difficulty. It doles out death by the bucket-load, but its major flaw is that it rarely makes it feel like the player's fault. The windows of timing are too narrow, the camera angles work against you, obstacles pop up out of nowhere and it all piles up into an extremely frustrating experience with little else to show for it. It's cheap, fast, and designed to make you angry. Sounds fun? Well, it's your funeral...
This runner is definitely not geared towards the casual market because casual players will find it to be very hard and very frustrating. But for those of you who are up for the challenge, then you’re going to have a lot of fun with this though as nails runner. I enjoyed doing this Run Run and Die review, and I look forward to the next EnjoyUp release!
There is enjoyment to be found in Run Run and Die. The plethora of issues is so bad that they're liable to shock gamers into fits of laughter. All they'll be able to think about is how a video game with such a simple concept could fail so spectacularly. Sometimes the camera will shift to an impossible angle, or the penguin will die unfairly, and it is absolutely hilarious. This game might make for a fun prank to play on friends, or to create a reaction video for a YouTube channel. If that doesn't sound appealing, then stay far away from Run Run and Die.
