Many of you Android gamers grew up dreaming of having Lara Croft as your girlfriend, and were rightly happy when Tomb Raider showed up in all its original glory on the Android platform. We all know Lara Croft from way back, and it seemed at one point that she was teetering on the edge of being forgotten. These days, Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix are even plotting of launching an endless/adventure runner game featuring our tomb raiding gal. Are you ready for that?
Both developers seem excited to be working with Simutronics – the outfit behind iOS games Gemstone IV and DragonRealms – in putting out this new game called “Lara Croft: Relic Run”. From what it sounds like, you will be correct in guessing that it mainly includes running and collecting relics, much like the mother of all endless runners, Temple Run.
But the developers claim this game app would be so much more than just another endless runner. Unlike other one dimensional running games, Relic Run will be offering more diversity – such as combat, vehicles, and epic boss fights. Of course, Lara Croft’s runs will be acrobatic-inspired, just like the old Lara Croft we’ve come to know and love.
The game has soft-launched in the Netherlands (if you’re reading from there, then check it out) in both Android and iOS. The developers are aiming for the game to be free to play on all three major mobile platforms, including Win8 Phone – launching very soon.
