How The Game Works

With Crash Bandicoot: On The Run you have a few different styles of games and characters to choose from. You can play Crash, of course, but there are other options too – and you can change how they look.

Crash Bandicoot: On The Run, like Temple Runner, is an infinite-run game, whereby you have a course that you have to navigate with jumps and slides. You have to collect items, spin, and slide under and over objects.

There’s also a gamut of enemies you have to deal with too, ranging from the easy to dispose of to boss-grade adversaries that will push your wits to their limits.

Here’s the official blurb for the game from KING, its developer:

Join Crash Bandicoot and his sister Coco on a mission to save the multiverse!

Think fast to keep Crash and Coco running, jumping, spinning and smashing in lanes loaded with obstacles. Speed through mysterious lands, defeating the henchmen of Doctor Neo Cortex.

Swipe to explore wild and exotic locations. Customize Crash and Coco with N.Sane Skins, build an arsenal of stupendous weapons, and hone those running skills for rewards.

And here’s some in-game action from Crash Bandicoot: On The Run, so you can see what the game is like to play.
