I Must Run! Nintendo 3DS Game Review

In a daring task to save his wife, the unnamed protagonist must run across the urban landscape before it is too late.

If you are familiar to Canabalt, you have an idea how I Must Run! is played. Hand-eye coordination is key as you lead your character through every obstacle. Unlike the popular PC game that constantly leaps from one rooftop to another until the goal is reached, this Nintendo 3DS game amps up the complexity of the challenges. Apart from gaps, the character also has to punch away or jump over hazards, as well as slide under any low ceilings, and even perform a double jump.

Each level is randomly generated, meaning you would not be able to memorize the challenges and get lax; you have to keep your eyes glued to the monitor for any sudden problems and hit the appropriate button. The actions can be performed using both the D-pad and face button simultaneously, such as pressing Down to slide while pressing X and A to jump and punch respectively. Despite being a DS title, the game does not have a touch input.

The game consists of six levels, each is as difficult as the other. The character will sprint over jail buildings, skip between trains in a subway, dart over girder-filled construction sites, and then some. The background is multi-layered featuring changing weather, helicopters, swinging cranes, and other stuff designed to distract you. In case you have consumed all four lives, your character comes back at the beginning of whichever level you have reached.

If the Story mode is not your thing, switch into Endless mode that jogs more closely to similar games. Get your character run, duck, and dive for as long as physically possible to set the longest distance covered with a single life.

Developed by Gamelion, I Must Run! is available for Nintendo 3DS costing $1.99 and Nintendo DSiWare for 200 points.
