Indie Endless Runner ‘Retro Runners’ Sprints Onto Google Play

Retro Runners is a great new endless runner from the two man Brazilian developer Countryside Games. The game puts you in the shoes of one of 10 unique runners that is in the hurdle race of a lifetime. You will find yourself on an endless three-laned hurdle track that is filled with a wide variety obstacles; like hurdles, other racers, swimming pools, and even delivery trucks! The game also throws some unique gameplay elements into the mix that really make it stand out other games in the genre. Two examples are that you will need to collect water bottles from fans on the side of the track to keep your energy bar full, and you need to avoid paparazzi whose camera flashes will temporarily blind you. However, my favorite aspect of Retro Runners are its fantastic retro-inspired voxel graphics.



  • 10 incredible characters with unique skills and features!
  • Endless race! How long can you survive?
  • Complete the missions to earn coins and unlock characters!
  • Compete for the online rankings using your Google+ account!

The endless runner genre is one of the most over populated genres in the Google Play Store, but Retro Runners does enough different to make this game stand out as something unique. Best of all the Retro Runners is a free download, so there’s nothing keeping you from giving it a download. Sprint over to Google Play and download this gorgeous voxel art endless runner right now.
