Run 3 Review

Run 3 Review

Playing with aliens in outer space sounds like a lot of fun. In Run 3, that’s exactly what gamers get to do. This 3D single-player game isn’t the newest on the market, but it’s one of the best. It has everything that I like to see in a game for kids: it’s free of violence, easy to learn, and doesn’t cost anything to play. In fact, I’ve enjoyed playing Run 3 on Poki, too!

Admiring the Galaxy

This game sends adventurous players on a journey among the stars. The main character is a brave, friendly alien who can run and hop across wondrous tunnels. Her mission is to travel back home, wherever that may be. We’re not sure how far away her native planet is, but we’re ready to go there.

As we travel farther with the alien (also known as “Runner”), we learn more about her universe. The Galaxy Map is an expansive chart. It branches off into several sections, each of which has completely different tunnels. The Galaxy Map lets us keep track of progress and revisit levels at any time. Certain drawings on the interstellar parchment unlock mini-movies to enjoy. It’s just another one of many aspects that makes Run 3 so fun!

Characters and Costumes

Runner is the first playable character, and she can help us unlock more. Skater is the next friendly alien. He moves faster than Runner, but he’s a bit harder to control. Other unlockable characters include the all-green Lizard, balloon-toting Child, and gravity-defying Student. Each creature has unique abilities. Certain skills are very helpful, while others are primarily entertaining.

Speaking of entertainment, there are a bunch of seasonal costumes and outfits for players. Halloween costumes can be purchased or unlocked by conquering the Low-Power area of the universe. Winter outfits become available after completing the Winter Games. These costumes don’t modify how our characters move, but they can certainly inspire us to keep playing!

Gliding Gameplay

When I first saw my youngest playing Run 3, I thought that the game looked a bit like Subway Surfers. After all, both games are 3D “endless runners.” But, Run 3 is a lot less hectic. It doesn’t distract with ultra-flashy graphics and speeding railcars. Run 3 is a challenging game, but it’s also relaxing. Players glide, bounce, and skate across colorful tunnels in outer space.

Gravity is one of the most interesting parts of the game. Instead of being stuck on the ground, players can run along walls and ceilings—we’re traveling in space, remember? Creative gamers will make use of 360-degree paths to victory. It’s not just a matter of running and jumping; younger and older players must explore to win.


Extra Stuff

Mentioning all of the extra goodies would be a daunting task. Plus, discovering them while playing is part of the fun! If your children want to befriend alien creatures, unlock intergalactic achievements, and venture into the stars, Run 3 is the game for them. You might as well play, too!
