Run Sackboy! Run! brings the LittleBigPlanet franchise into the endless runner space with a delightful side scrolling game packed full of collectibles. While the game has obvious appeal to LittleBigPlanet fans there isn’t a barrier to entry if this is your first taste of the franchise.

Run Sackboy Run! falls into the side scrolling sub-genre of endless runners where your focus is on jumping, gliding and flying over obstacles that are presented to the player at an increasing speed. Negativitron will be hot on your tail as you adventure through a number of different themed areas with their own obstacles and randomised layout.

Controls are very simple with players tapping on the screen to jump or holding down their finger for a higher jump. Players can also dash forward if they are close to being caught by Negativitron and makes this less than a risk compared to similar games with most of your deaths coming from spikes, enemies and other hazards.

Along the way you’ll collect as many bubbles as you can which allow you to purchase costumes, activate boosts at the start of a run or improve the duration of the 3 power-ups that you’ll find randomly during each game (jetpack, glider and bubble magnet). With well over a dozen of these costumes to collect it gives players a fun goal to work towards as these give scoring multipliers that make it easier to achieve high scores for you to compete on the Facebook powered leader board.

In addition to normal bubbles players will occasionally encounter prize bubbles which are much rarer and come in themed sets. If players can obtain an entire set they’ll be rewarded with a large amount of bubbles or extra lives which can be used to revive during a game. Run Sackboy! Run! also includes two rare stamp collections that unlock cosmetic items in other Little Big Planet games which is a nice touch.

Run Sackboy! Run! is definitely one of the best offerings in the endless running space, with so much to unlock, impressive graphics and simple controls it leaves most other games in the genre behind.

Summary:

  • An endless runner with a LittleBigPlanet theme.
  • Simple but incredibly addicting.
  • Collect stickers to unlock unique cosmetic items for other games.
  • Impressive graphics give the game great atmosphere.
  • Run for free on iOS, Android and PS Vita.
