The rhythm-music gameplay of BIT.TRIP RUNNER and Runner2 is back and better than ever! The Timbletot is determined to rid the multiverse of all its love and happiness. CommanderVideo, a lover if ever there were one, refuses to let this happen. He’s ready to jump, double-jump, wall-jump, slide-jump, slide, kick, float, drive, fly, and dance his way to victory, all across a medley of thrilling, challenging, and joyous levels! - Hero quests! Runner3 is filled with oddball characters in need of your help. Lend them a hand and they'll reward you generously! - Vehicles! Players will encounter wild vehicles that stand no chance of ever being deemed street legal. Eggplant planes! Celery cars! Cans propelled by carbonation! And so much more! - Branching paths! Every level in Runner3 offers branching paths of varying difficulties. Take the hard path and earn yourself some gems; opt for the normal path and line your pockets with precious gold bars. The choice is yours! - Retro challenges! A series tradition, every level in Runner3 has an accompanying "retro" level--it’s like two games for the price of one! These levels will also offer a series' first: free movement! Control CommanderVideo in ways you never have before, and earn precious “Gildan” coins in the process! - Item shop! Players will be able to spend their hard-earned Gildans and gems on costumes, capes, accessories, and more. There are no in-game purchases in Runner3--keep your dang money! - New playable characters! The Commanders are joined by friends new and old, including Dave of Woah Dave! fame, Unkle Dill, Frank 'N Stein, Awnty Rewty, and more! - Charles Martinet! Charles Martinet returns for his role of "The Narrator"

Runner 3 is a fun, challenging experience with a weird, charming aesthetic brought down by out-of-date graphics.

A deeply disappointing sequel that devolves from a perfectly judged mix of rhythm action and platforming to an unfairly difficult slog that's not nearly as clever as it thinks it is.

Runner 3 is the most ambitious in the series yet--and also the toughest.

Despite creating two other Runners, Choice Provisions has shown that they're not out of ideas quite yet. Bring on Runner4.
