…so, do the gray aliens have a name for their species, or do we just refer to them as “Aliens”? I want to make sure that I refer to the species using the correct name.
Thanks.

They do have a name for their species, but unfortunately it’s a spoiler.

Well, would you believe that? Run 3 was put in the “Best of 2014” list! It makes me happy to see that this game is getting the recognition it deserves.

That is not even theoretically possible. It would take about 40 years to get that many power cells in one run.

Player 03,
I have a question. When the Student is doing its “floating via inverted gravity”, and it hits the edge of a platform, it does that weird invert move. Do you know why that is? Is it another glitch, or does it have something to do with the Student’s ability?
Thanks.

Have you ever thought about adding a character who’s unlocked with 15-20 achievements? I’m thinking the zombie can revive themselves the first time or the werewolf gets faster every 100 tiles crossed (starting at the runner’s speed). You’d go back to runner if you slow down, and slow down 1 “stage” every time you…

Now, doing this level using the skater without jumping…there is a possible challenge.

avatar for Karsh777
Karsh777 Feb 22, 2015 10:48am

It’s not a very challenging level as the skater; he can easily cross 1 block gaps at speed, making the level MUCH easier.

mathwiz100 Feb 22, 2015 10:49am

Yep, I suppose that completing the level blindfolded wouldn’t even be a challenge. (Wait, what?)

Maybe for the next update in Run 3, you could add a level counter. Something like “77/173 levels complete”. Also, a % counter. Measuring achievements, levels, and characters. Maybe add some achievements like “Hoard 20000 power cells” which take more time than skill to achieve.

Hey, found a slight transition problem in Infinite mode.

While going through a level, the transition to the next, instead of going from, say, 8 sides to 4 gradually instead changed to 4 sides as soon as the level ended. This caused a weird problem where instead of having a smooth transition there was a massive angular cut on one side, which led out…

I know that the 1.9.3 update included the 21 new levels and the 6 new achievements. I thought that 1.9.2 was basically the new levels without the new achievements because the January 16 update included the new achievements. By that logic, will the next update be 1.9.4?
