From the makers of ROCK BAND and DANCE CENTRAL…This is RECORD RUN!

Record Run is a free rhythm-runner that puts you in the middle of your music, chasing records and dodging obstacles to the beat in a crazy musical world. With gameplay levels created to play along with your music, this is a whole new way to run!

“Harmonix has managed to transfer the desire for perfection that made Guitar Hero so compulsive into an endless runner.” –Pocket Gamer

Choose your runner from a fun cast of characters and jump, duck and dodge through the city on your way to high-scores! Collect records as you run to get awesome upgrades and unlocks!

(Note: RECORD RUN REQUIRES SONGS TO BE STORED LOCALLY ON YOUR DEVICE. Songs stored in the cloud must be downloaded to your device to be used. )

Record Run features an amazing hand-painted art style, characters with tons of personality, and moment-to-moment gameplay that’s deeply musical and crazy fun. Users select songs from the music library on their device and run through levels along with their music that are created on the spot by all new Harmonix magic. Unlock content and currency through a series of exciting “missions” that track your progress and transform the city into an amazing “Groove World."

Record Run also allows users to challenge their friends to song battles, fight it out on weekly leaderboards and much, much more!

***Note: iPod Touch 4G is not supported.
*** Record Run does not currently support streaming music services.
*** Record Run currently supports most audio formats, but is incompatible with DRM-locked “.m4p” format, previously sold in the iTunes Music Store.

Love this game!

In the process of trying to develop my own endless runner game, this was one of a multitude of others I downloaded for inspiration. This game immediately jumped out at me with its fun simple style, entertaining gameplay and simple controls! It only took a couple of play throughs before I was getting 4 and 5 star ratings on the songs. However, I was really interested to try out my own music. That is where the real fun began! I tried out stuff from Kiss from a Rose to Heavy Metal and Reflective! The game took it and made the music I love into a game that was even more enjoyable! I love this app and can’t wait to keep trying out more songs! The only thing I think I would love to see is the option to delete a song I’ve added after I’ve played through? I haven’t found a way to delete it unless right after you upload it.

Harmonix not updating this

*Aug. 7, 2016* ⭐️ =1
Had emailed 📧 Harmonix to see if they will update this game. The company told me they Will Not be updating "Record Run". This was last week that I communicated with them. Sad☹️, this game 🎮 could've had a lot of potential.

Like reviewer Broskivus said, Harmonix needs to update this application. Apple could take this game off the App Store if left without a current update. Harmonix, have you abandoned this game?

Would give this game another chance if:
>Portrait mode was implemented.
>Purchased characters could be saved when we get a new device.

Thank you in advance.

Did not receive the purchases that I had made. Application is having problems with in- app purchases. Will not give me what I had paid for. Charged me $21 dollars twice! 😡 Not cool! I'm done with this game!

Buyer beware. Don't make in- app purchase because you'll end up like me ( being ripped off).

This game is unplayable because it is in landscape mode. Would give it five stars if this was in portrait mode.

*Jan. 19, 2015*🌟🌟🌟
Still like this game. But will only give this five 🌟 stars if this was in portrait mode. It is too hard to play on the iPhone on landscape. Please consider? 🙊🙏

Game is great. Would be nice if one can play on portrait mode. Is there a way that it can be possible to have a portrait mode option? Pretty solid game. Thank you.

Need to fix the Challenge thing.

I absolutely LOVE this game! Except there are a few things that NEED to be improved:

1. The cost of upgrades & outfits & characters.
- Why is every boost upgrade 5,000? Shouldn't they cost 500 and then work there way up?
-10,000 for outfits but it cost 20 or more backstage passes for the characters? If anything, I should earn backstage passes Every time I complete a FULL song.

2. The Challenge thing.
-When I go to friends I can see who's playing and what they scored on each song they play, but I cannot challenge them to a single song. I realized that doing it from the Game Center doesn't really help either, they just get my total score. This needs to be fixed because there is a mission that requires you to challenge a friend and I had to skip it because the challenge thingy-ma-jig doesn't work exactly. I spent some well-earned records that could've went on some upgrades.


EDIT: The magnet doesn't attract the records!


The song slots should be unlimited or if not, then the prices shouldn't raise! We should only spend 1 backstage pass for 1 slot instead of 2 for 1.


We should earn more music from each mission we pass! Like from random bands like Count Zero - My Mockingbird! That song is SOO addictive! 🎵🎶❤️😁
