Crash Bandicoot: On the Runfor Android



A runner challenge game with Crash Bandicoot

Crash Bandicoot: On the Run is based on an infinite runner mechanic, but there are set levels, unlockable areas, and mini-games. It uses a freemium model similar to Clash of Clans where you have to wait for things to recharge before continuing.

Is Crash Bandicoot on the run free?

This game is not free in the same way that Hill Climb Racing is free. This game uses a re-charge freemium model where if you want to play more frequently during the day, then you have to pay for recharges.

Is there a Crash Bandicoot app?

This is not the original Crash Bandicoot platforming game, this game is similar in many ways except that you are forced to keep running in this game whereas you can stop and reverse in the original games.

Is the game rigged?

Many of the levels in this retro inspired game are very easy, so the gameplay doesn't feel rigged or built to rinse people of money.

Our take

Crash Bandicoot: On the Run was not created by any of the console game developers, so it hasn’t inherited any of their problems with hit boxes and depth perception. This game has learned from modern games and is, therefore, smoother, more engaging, and fairer than its predecessors.

Should you download it?

The biggest problem with this free running game is the recharge function. If you are not willing to pay so speed things up, then you may only play for around an hour per day. If you can live with that or don’t mind paying, then this game is worth downloading.


  • Far better than its console-based predecessors.
  • Does not become too difficult at any single juncture.
  • The tutorial is long but very well crafted.
  • Far more advanced and sophisticated than its competitor Temple Run.


  • The mini-game grinding seems a little unnecessary.
  • Takes five hours and several interactions to make just one gun.
  • Limited time rewards are too difficult to get without paying.
  • Popups spawn too often and slow the game down.
