Test Your Reaction Skills with Run!

Reaction games are very popular on the App Store. These types of games are easy to understand but they can be very challenging. They also offer hours of fun-filled action and enjoyment. 
One of the best reaction games that you shouldn’t miss is Run! This is an old-school game with simple graphics and intuitive controls. And like most reaction games, it can be very addictive. 
When you load the game, your stick figure character automatically runs across the screen at constant speed. You will be confronted by different kinds of obstacles including metal barriers, saw blades, brick walls, sharks, zombies, walrus, boulders, and springboards.
Some obstacles, such as metal barriers and saw blades, are indestructible so you have to evade them by swiping up to jump or swiping down to slide. Other obstacles can be destroyed or attacked. Tap a boulder or a brick wall to blast it with your bazooka missiles. 
When confronted by monsters, you can tap the attack button to unleash your running punch and flying kick. Fortunately, monsters die easily with just one punch. 
The speed of the game gradually increases so you have to make split-second decisions in order to avoid getting killed by monsters and other obstacles. The background also changes every time you restart a level. And the best part about this game is that it randomly selects a level to prevent you from memorizing the obstacles.
