Voted #1 in Mashable's "The 10 Most Beautiful Mobile Games"!

“Dead Runner is a unique take on the endurance run genre, immersing you in the action with a first-person point of view. It’s a somewhat creepy, yet exhilarating, almost Blair Witch like experience.” –

“Like Blair Witch without the cursing and motion sickness …This is one of those times when I keep pausing from writing just to squeeze in another run. Dead Runner thrives on that “just one more try” compulsion, and features a great list of challenging Achievements.” –

“I didn’t expect it to be so intense that I haven’t been able to put it down till I beat my highscore – and when I do, I’ll want to beat that.” –

You wake up in a dark forest, surrounded by the sounds of the wailing souls trapped in the haunted trees. The howling wind is delivering a chilling message of evil which is drawing closer by the second. The cold whispers of the forgotten souls tell you to run as far as you can, as fast as you can before it’s too late.

You cannot hide or stop for it can see you, find you and take you.

I love this game, although it does need some more stuff.maybe instead of just running straight, you can walk in all directions... Maybe have a radar to see what lurks in the forest (werewolves, zombies, vampires, demons)... Maybe you can find weapons to fight them off... Find old shelters, haunted houses, and caves to hide in... Graves you can fall into, cob webs, skeletons, hanging bodies, spiders, bats, snakes, more tombstones, etc... ghosts... And maybe you have to save your friends... A running game just seems so boring! Not creepy at all, but very addicting! Well done... So far...

Simple and addictive, but needs more

It's true what others are writing about this game, it's a lot like the movie "The Blair Witch Project," but without all the excessive cursing and constant feeling of motion sickness. If you liked "Cube Runner," you'll like this game just the same.

Although this game is truly exceptional, many of the other players, myself included, agree that this game could use some additional sound effects. For example, heavy, panicked breathing, footsteps running along the ground, and a blood-curdling scream when the "thing" catches you in Chase Mode, in addition to fixing all of the supposed crashes and bugs.

Like I said, it's good, almost perfect in fact, but it needs a little more for the experience to be truly fulfilling.

All you do is run

I bought this due to the average rating and the screenshots, but I was very disappointed in the game. All you do is run and avoid trees and sometimes run through objects in the air if you play a certain mode. The are no monsters, no zombies, no people to kill. Just trees you avoid. Graphics are interesting and animation executes well, thus I gave it 2 stars, but to be honest I had a hard time giving it that many. Visually the game is interesting, but it REALLY needs more involved gameplay.
