Ostrich Runner is a racing game that puts player in role of an ostrich trying to save ostrich race from extinction by collecting eggs which were scattered all over the world by mad and evil professor.

In series of 8 completely diverse worlds player competes with other ostriches in time, and amount of eggs gathered. Each ostrich featured in a game has a unique appearance (i.e. military, cowboy, safari).

The game utilizes a so-called “Toon Shading” technology thus rendering a picture similar to a 2D cartoon, essentially remaining a full 3D game.
