While there are tons and tons of extraordinary paid apps available on the BlackBerry PlayBook, there are also a boatload of incredible free apps and games as well. Run In Crowd for the BlackBerry PlayBook has been around for a few months now, but the latest additions certainly make it more rounded. Since launching Run In Crowd, the developer has added music, smoother gameplay, and integrated the Scoreloop social gaming platform.
- Multiplayer - you race alongside other players
- Level generation - you run in a new world each day
- Simple and addictive gameplay with simple controls
- Cross-platform competition - you run with players from iOS/Android/BlackBerry devices
The premise of the game is actually quite straightforward, run. When you start the level you and a few other gamers are in the same position, but that quickly changes as you are forced to run as the world gets faster and faster. You will want to keep an eye out for obstacles and large voids in the games world. The longer you run, the higher your score as well as the bigger bragging rights when you see yourself as the number one on the worldwide leader boards.
The developers have dubbed this game as a multiplayer game, and while it technically is, you aren't playing against others in real time. The multiplayer works by remembering previous races of other players from around the world and then pins you up against their old race times. A neat way of doing multiplayer gaming and also a good way to eliminate lag between internet connections. Run In Crowd is available on the BlackBerry PlayBook and is free in BlackBerry App World.
