Description

In Dead Runner, the player finds himself in a dark and eerie forest. There is no one else around but the creepy ambient sounds deliver a message that can only be interpreted in one way. Run or get devoured by the souls that are haunting the forest. The gameplay is similar to the ZX Spectrum game 3D Deathchase. The player runs through the forest, viewed from a first person perspective, and has to avoid hitting trees or other obstacles. The running is done automatically so all the player needs to do is to control the steering by tilt the device in the direction he wants to move. Running into a brush will briefly slow down the running speed. Once the player hits and obstacles the game is over and a highscore is given. On the place where the player dies a grave stone will be placed and then become an obstacle in further playthroughs.

The original release of the game has two game modes: distance mode and points mode. In distance mode the player simply has to stay alive as long as possible while in the points mode he has to score as many points as possible. Points are awarded for the distance and for collecting pickups. Most basic pickups are yellow but there are also purple (2x) and green (3x) multipliers that gives extra points while active although they at the same time increases the speed.
