  • Summary: For a long time Cornelius has been working at the local comic books stand shop. For about as long, he's been daydreaming about how somehow, someday, he'd become a Hero. After all, wasn't what the fortune cookie was saying, right? ... Right?
    Fortunately the Aliens invasion would be just in
    time to provide with this opportunity...

    Don't Run is a breathtaking, retro sci-fi, combat based, funny sidescroller with tons of content.

    Anyway, what can you ask more for than running with a plasma sword slicing invading aliens?

    A fun entry in the endless running genre that brings both storyline, and humour to the table.

    If you're going to be an 'endless runner', take a page out Don't Run With a Plasma Sword's book and try to provide an experience that goes beyond mindless platforming; while it still suffers from the genre's weaknesses, it's a great title for those after truly competitive high-scoring.

    We grew tired of "runners" months ago, but Don't Run With A Plasma Sword renewed our faith in these types of games, thanks to the addition of combat. Whip out that sword and come out swinging.

    Yes, a few cheap deaths aside, Don't Run With a Plasma Sword is another solid endless runner with a little bit of action-platformer thrown in. So throw the instruction manual out the window and give this one a try if you're a fan of the genre. Did I mention the theremin? It really is rather neat.

    Don't run and buy Don't Run With a Plasma Sword, with or without a plasma sword in tow.
