Runaway VR

If you’ve played any Temple Run style games on mobile you’ll be instantly familiar with Runaway VR. It is a simple game where you collect coins by manoeuvring your head to keep in line with the coins while avoiding drops and obstacles.

There are 3 levels to play through. You start with a Jungle level and there are 2 further ones to unlock with the coins you earn during the game, which are desert and castle themed levels.

The game starts off quite slow but as you progress through the level it gets progressively faster. Once you’ve played it a few times you’ll find the start of each level slightly tedious, but you’ll endure it until the fun really begins, when the speed picks up! When you get going it’s great fun, you’ll be stepping or leaning side to side to avoid the drops, ducking to miss the overhead obstacles and jumping so you don’t run into the things blocking your path.

There are various bonuses you can pick up along the way and power-ups to spend your coins on which will keep you playing to earn more coins.

It’s a really fun little game that it a pleasure to play. The art style has a wonderful cartoony feel to it and the sounds and music helps with the tension as the level gets faster.


Overall it’s a really fun little game. It won’t keep you entertained for long periods but you will probably find yourself coming back to it for a quick blast and to play with your friends to see who can get the highest score!
