Long Run Brings Endless Stealth Action To Android
An interesting new spin on the endless running genre by the name of Long Run has arrived and its dynamic Mirror’s Edge meets Metal Gear Solid approach to gameplay feels like a breath of fresh air in an otherwise stagnant genre. The brainchild of newly formed indie developer 2D Tap Studios, Long Run combines tactical espionage action with fast paced, reaction based mechanics.
As a rookie spy on their first mission, players will have to literally run for their lives at breakneck speeds through an enemy military installation filled with lasers, missiles, and an army of trained killers. This spy has a few tricks of her own however and can deftly avoid the bases many traps as well as take down enemy combatants with ease.
Fans of games like the Xbox Live Arcade’s Shadow Complex will instantly feel at home with Long Run‘s visual style. Intricately detailed environments and excellent character animation backed up by the Unity3D engine make Long Run one of the best looking runners on the market. An extensive mission list and tons of unlockables provide plenty of replay value which is a rare thing to encounter in the endless runner genre these days.
Long Run is a fantastic action platformer and should not be missed. You can pick it up for free on Google Play.
