Whether you're in karts or capes, there's nothing that brings out that competitive spirit like a good ol'-fashioned race to the finish line. SpeedRunners takes that idea to a whole new addictive level thanks to insane maps, simple controls, and loads of replayability. Gameplay is simple, addictive, and so fast-paced you don't have time to lament your loss (or if you win, heckle the losers) before another fast-paced round begins. With new characters, maps, items, and features added every month, there's no way to ever get bored with this game. Even if you don't have any friends to team up with for the intense online competition, you can go head to head with slightly less challenging bots.

For a game that's so simple on the surface, there are a lot of intricacies that make it more than just a mad dash. You'll need skill as much as you'll need luck to win with any consistency. You'll pick up on tricks such as how using the grappling hook at just the right time and angle can help you get that extra ounce of speed and distance to help keep your hero in the running. With quirky characters, superpowers, gadgets, and a comic-book style, SpeedRunners is a recipe for fast-paced fun that's almost as much fun to lose as it is to win.
