Oh, endless runner games that would work perfectly fine on mobile devices, how you tend to baffle me on the Switch. The thing is, I won’t make any attempt to even imply that Run isn’t well-made for what it does, or that you can’t have fun with it. It looks good, what controls it has are well-implemented, and I suppose if you have a ton of patience on your side the unlockable characters and extra goodies may be fun to grind for. Just… it’s also hard not to reflect on this sort of game having been out there for ages now, and you can play variations on the same gameplay and concepts for free on your phone or tablet. To its credit, this is priced to be an easy sell, even moreso if it ends up on sale at some point, so if you’re so inclined or you have younger gamers around who may love something simple but engaging, this’ll do nicely and looks darned cute with it’s Cut The Rope mascot character doing the running (and eating along the way).
