Lara Croft: Relic Run is the latest Tomb Raider game to be released for iOS, and as you’d imagine from the title, it’s the Tomb Raider version of an endless runner game. Even if you’re not a fan of endless runner games, this one actually has a bit more substance to it than the usual fare, being steeped in the traditions and lore of the Tomb Raider universe, as well as having a really impressively atmospheric soundtrack.
The free-to-play game is the creation of Square Enix and Simutronics, in partnership with Crystal Dynamics. The storyline sees Lara Croft running, swinging, driving, and swan-diving her way around jungle temples and desert ruins in a bid to unearth the truth behind a shadowy worldwide conspiracy.
Gameplay is much more varied than the average endless runner, complete with parkour moves that let Lara switch seamlessly between fast-paced vehicles, combat, and epic boss battles, including the iconic Tomb Raider T-Rex.
The game offers players a fresh experience every time, with not two runs being the same, and multiple routes and hidden areas to be discovered. You can also play against others and compete for high scores, coins, and distance, as well as collecting clues and ancient relics.
You can even send Curses to your friends in a sneaky bid to foil their own runs!
Well worth downloading, especially if you’re a Tomb Raider fan, of course!
