For a long time Cornelius has been working at the local comic books stand shop. For about as long, he's been daydreaming about how somehow, someday, he'd become a Hero. After all, wasn't what the fortune cookie was saying, right? ... right? Fortunately the Aliens invasion would come just in time to provide with this opportunity...

Don't Run is a breathtaking, retro sci-fi, combat based, funny sidescroller with tons of content.

Anyway, what more can you ask for than running with a plasma sword, slicing-up invading aliens?

Why 5 stars?

First off the dev team is awesome. They care about their work and players and are communicative as well as more than willing to incorporate user feedback. This game is simply one of the best auto runners on the AppStore. The theme alone is fantastic. There's so many upgrades and cosmetic items you can get for your character. There are actual levels in a story mode but also endless modes that vary in the degree of difficulty. There is sooo much replayability with this game. The controls are actually spot on and I've not had any issues at all. This game really does deserve 5 stars. Oh and if you want to get extra xp to get some upgrades or a light saber color you can watch some opt in ads. Nothing forced. Well that's it. Thank you devs for continuing to support this game and for such a fun time.

Always Run With A Plasma Sword

This game, after searching long and hard, is the perfect iPad platformer. The game has challenge, easy controls, and a story line, don't forget an endless mode. In my search for a perfect platformers I downloaded many-a-platformer(some of which I wish I could get refunds on), but this game is by far the best platformer.

My only criticism is the expense of certain items. I definitely want that silver light saber( plasma sword) but there is no conceivable way of obtaining it without grinding for days. I am going to end up spending the extra buck or two, but still I would like it a little bit less.

In conclusion, it is definitely worth the .99 cents you are going to pay for this app. The sound track as far as I can tell is repetitive but don't fret, it's a sweet track. I also enjoy the light saber sound effect the plasma sword makes when you swing it, it has a very Star Wars-y feel to it.

Fun but broken controls

Game looks and feels great and I'm sure it would be a lot of fun but the jump button doesn't always work on my iPhone 6s+ and I can't get past the first level of the second world because of it. If the controls were fixed where it's more playable, I would rate much higher.
