Battle Run is a quirky game where you play as a number of characters in a mad scramble to the finish line. Traps, spikes, fires, and dirty tricks await you as you use whatever you can pick up and use to propel yourself to the finish line! Battle Run is a free app available on both the App Store and Google Play
Store, and is a game that I myself enjoy playing as a suitable pass-time, or as a means of settling the score between friends.

I like Battle Run because it is simple. You race against people and try to win. Sounds easy enough right? For the 
most part, it is. If you think you can win (or even survive the entire race) by just running you’re dead wrong. Each character has different items that can be picked up from a random item box that can be found along the courses at different intervals. These items range from a throwing ax to a hoverboard, to a missile, and they can all be strategically used to disrupt the other players’ race and give you an edge at finishing first. You can collect stars in-game to fuel your “Pet Bar” which when used lets you mount your trusty steed which grants you temporarily increased speed and will protect you from one trap. Careful and pragmatic uses of items in combination with my pet has catapulted me from dead last to first place many a time.



Although you can play Battle Run for free, earning the in-game currency (Gems) by doing daily tasks, the level of "grind" (work) necessary to get them for free quickly becomes tedious.  I get it, good games require a lot of work, time and money to make happen, but from this gamer's perspective Battle Run's free-to-monetization mix feels a bit unbalanced.  Most of the items you want to have in this game cost money and constantly having to choose between putting more money in the game and not having the weapon that you really want in-game does get old.

I recognize that Battle Run is multiplayer game and as such server speeds vary depending on number of concurrent users, etc.  That said, server drops need to be handled better... I should be able to react to a rocket barreling towards me, not just get "reconnected" to find that I am dead.  The game also feels a bit unbalanced when it comes to player level matchups.  I recognize that the game want to incentivize leveling up -- but the differences in player acceleration and top speed in my matches were annoying.  Please either put me in match with more comparable leveled players or make it so it is not so one sided.

Even with the shared frustrations, I give this game a solid 3.5 / 5 stars; mostly docking points for the server issues and the fact that the game almost needs you to put in money to get what you need to have fun.
