Thanks to some clever new mechanics, and an old school cartoon look, this endless runner game is more fun than most. In Bendy in Nightmare Run, the main hero is running away from a giant chest that has sharp teeth, wiggly arms, and a burning desire to do harm. Using your fingers to swipe up, left, right, and down to move in the corresponding direction, you have to avoid being hit by his guns and the barrels he tosses at you, while gathering cans of bacon that can, well, save your bacon. But unlike most endless runners, where the objective is to not get caught, this game puts a new spin on things by letting Bendy grab axes, anvils, and other items he can throw at your enemies. At first glance, it would seem like it could eliminate the challenge, but it helps that the chest can take a fair bit of punishment before it finally gives up.
Further adding to the fun, the game has the old school look of a 1930s black & white cartoon. Admittedly, if you've never been a fan of this kind of game, the new mechanics and old looks won't change your mind. But if you do like jogging, jumping, and throwing things at jerks who won't stop chasing you, Bendy in Nightmare Run is a fun run.
