The legendary action game, "10 Second Run" is back! The rules (and controls) are simple: "Move Sideways" and "Jump & Dash" to get to the finish line in under 10 seconds! Unlock different types of stick figures as you clear the stages! Run solo or race against others in multiplayer mode! Any time, any where, with anyone, simply run, run, run! You'll be surprised how much excitement is packed in 10 seconds- and how long 10 seconds can be!
When the Japan-only GO Series: 10 Second Run was localised back in 2010 it gave the west a chance to experience a classic premise with a speedy twist. Seven-plus years on and that formula feels suitably refreshed on Switch with a tougher set of challenges, a better course unlock system and support for local co-op. 10 Second Run Returns might look basic, but there's plenty of addictive fun and moreish frustration to be had in 10 seconds or less.
10 Second Run Returns may just be basic in premise and concept, but it somehow keeps you fixated with it for even if it's for a few hours. Aside from a multiplayer that needs more polish and a missing mode from the DSiWare original, this is a cheap but fun plaformer for anyone up for a quick challenge.
What it lacks in sizzle it makes up for in function. The level design is fair and fun to overcome, and holds plenty of challenge for the platforming fanatic. Although there may be many other more exciting looking selections available on Switch, 10 Second Run is a good option for quick and reliable platforming fun.
