Just over two years ago I did a Google search on both Google’s main search page and on YouTube for the top multiplayer mobile games. I discovered a few multiplayer games during that time, but it was a comment on one of the YouTube videos that led me to discovering Fun Run.
“Fun Run is an online real-time multiplayer game for smart phones and tablets, both Android and iOS. You can be anywhere in the world and play with up to four players simultaneously. Play with your friends or get matched with random players from around the world!
In Fun Run, the player controls a customizable character in a race against up to three other opponents in real time. There are two buttons to press, one to jump and the other to use any available power ups.
The goal of the game is to beat the other opponents to the finish line to come in first place. Each game lasts around a minute long and ends when all the players cross the finish line that haven’t disconnected. There are different map options available to play on throughout the game, and a rating system to compete against others. The player can play in Quick Play against three other randomly selected players from around the world, or against friends.”
Reaching the finish line first rewards you with points and coins, coins can be used to buy cool characters and character customizations, which are quite awesome. The customizations are vast and pretty cool, below you can see how dope my in game character looks. Points help you to increase in the league that you’re in as well as increase your ranking in your clan if you choose to join one.
But of course, there can be more, I would love if there were more animations such as animated weather conditions and some new levels for us to play or maybe open up the game for players to create their own levels. Hopefully we might get all this in a Fun Run 3 release, fingers crossed?
Fun Run 1 and Fun Run 2 are pretty much identical in terms of game play, what sets Fun Run 2 apart from Fun Run 1 are the cool updated graphics, visuals, number of characters, levels, groups that you can join (groups are called clans) and maybe a few upgrades under the hood which helps the game run much smoother.

If you’ve reached this far into the article then you must have watched my YouTube Video of the game that I have embedded, so you can see how badass and addictive the game really is.
