Angry Gran Run
Angry Gran Run isn't your grandmother's endless running game. Even though it could star your grandmother, we're pretty sure most human beings aren't capable of running this far, this fast, or of leaping obstacles as high as our protagonist granny. Regardless, this third person arcade runner features all the unhinged action and coin collecting your heart desires. Just don't get too caught up tooling around with granny's crazy costume options.
Tilt your mobile device to move gran left and right, putting her in the path of coins or out of the path of dangerous obstacles. Swipe upwards to jump, downwards to slide, and swipe sideways to take corners like an old pro. Your main goal is to avoid taking a powder for as long as you can, but Angry Gran Run is determined to throw some of the wildest things in your path, just to see how you'll react.
Once you complete a run, you get to head back to spend some hard-earned coins in the in-gape shop. The store features the usual battery of power-ups and upgrades, including boosts, resurrection charges, coin multipliers, even a coin magnet and a double jump. Basic stuff you'll find very useful if you're in the mood to partake, but granny runs just fine with nothing more than her own two feed.
Angry Gran Run leans a little too heavily on encouraging you to use diamonds to continue your run each time you die. If you don't, you start over at the beginning, which makes each run feel like a failure, no matter how many coins you collected or magic carpet rides you avoided. An unfortunate game design decision added in to push microtransactions. Still, Angry Gran Run is good clean fun, especially when the occasional dinosaur steps in to stir up a little trouble.
