I feel it's at this very moment that the behind the back endless runner craze that started with Temple Run [Free] has either reached its peak, or absolute rock bottom... Depending on how you look at it. The just soft launched Run Forrest Run finally combines the two things that I feel like have been begging to be mashed together since the endless runner was invented: Endless running and the quintessential endless runner himself: Forrest Gump.

It's hard to say how long the soft launch will run, but, hopefully it'll hit the US App Store soon. No word yet on whether or not there's a bonus stage where you're running through Vietnam, your mom dies of cancer, and/or your girlfriend runs off before returning with your son and AIDS... But, maybe they can add all that with updates.

If you don't have a New Zealand iTunes account yet to download the game, swing in to our forums to hear from people who are playing it right now.

    That "box of choolates" looks more like a Mystery Box from Subway Surfers. They must have picked some up while they were collecting all those Subway Surfers barriers to re-use.

      Tried it for a few short runs, and it really reminded me of subway surfers.

      Specifically Subway Surfers? Because the amount of games I've seen use the same engine makes me think it's open source.

      • Adams Immersive

        Subway Surfers has many clones. I don't know if it's the first 3-lane runner (it's the first I know of) but its art style has been copied a lot as well.

    Why is this no surprise to me? I mean it was bound to happen one way or another smh

  • rewind

    This looks good. Sort of. I can't really tell.

  • HarryWarden

    LOL. Hilarious. Is there a stage where you play young Forrest and begin the stage wearing leg braces which break off as you run? And why aren't you collecting boxes of chocolate instead of generic coins?

    • B30

      Yes, in the tutorial you play as young Forrest with leg braces.
