Run for your life is almost a reverse of all those space invaders style games where you need to shoot descending ships before they land. In run for your life however, you don't have a gun to defend yourself, and so the only thing you can do about constant barrage of falling bombs is, ---- well run for your life. Most bombs will simply fall down and explode, however there are also smoke bombs which will leave a fire on the ground for you to jump over. Sadly, hiding out in the corners of the playing field won't help you, since too long in one corner and you'll be elsewhere (with a stun penalty), likewise you'll need to be careful with your running since if you run too far too quickly you migh trip, which is not recommended when unmder fire. For each hit you take you lose 10 health, and obviously if your health hits zero, the spirit king will appear for your soul because your life, and the game are both over.

Fortunately, there are some bonus items to help you survive, such as shields to protect you from harm (even against the fatal electric and magneticbarriers at the edges of the playing field), teleporters which might get you out of a tight spot when used, health and speed bonuses and even neutralizers to give you a respite from the constant shower of nastiness.

How long can you survive? and how many points can you earn?

Created with The blastbay game toolkit The game now is abandonware. Furthermore, since antivirus programs read anything made with Bgt as a virus, you'll need to add an exception to windows defender in order to play the game. Though Oriol only now provides source code versions of his BGt projects on the above page, the audiogames archive do have a fully compiled version of the game, which can be downloaded at the above link.

Run from your past

As well as the usual version of Run for your life, Oriol also created a mod version of the game entitled Run from your past. The gameplay is entirely the, however Run from your past adds a classic, 8bit style ambience to the game making it sound as it might have done on the Nes, Sega Master system or a similar console of the past.
