While the gameplay of this action app provides what its name promises, the lack of info about your objectives and constant ads trip it up before it can get a full head of steam. Fun Race 3d does include a lot of entertaining courses and often feature impressive three-dimensional graphics. Players try to avoid obstacles to finish a short course. The rounds get more challenging as you progress with more obstacles and hazards scattered around. If you're hit by an object, you're forced to re-do the portion that you were trying to get past as long as your opponent hasn't reached the finish line.

The challenges are cleverly designed -- it often looks like you can just barrel ahead, but in reality, players will need to patient and work out a strategy to make it past most of the items in their way. Since you only re-try sections that you've been knocked down in instead of starting from the beginning, courses tend not to take too long to complete. Unfortunately, though, instead of being able to then immediately move to a more difficult course, players are taken to an ad after every round. Since the rounds are fairly short, that feels particularly jarring, making progress in Fun Race 3D feel like it will take forever. Then again, gamers may actually not be sure what sort of progress they're aiming for. Aside from very brief instructions on how to run, there really isn't an a sense of what you're expected to do other than win, so it's unclear how many levels exist, what the coins that are occasionally earned are for -- or what the ultimate goal in the game is, other than first place. It's unfortunate, because while the courses are fun, the lack of info and the constant adds makes this game feel more like a slow crawl than a race.
