'Survival Run with Bear Grylls' allows you to dodge bears on Windows Phone too

Survival Run with Bear Grylls on Windows Phone

Have you ever played Temple Run and thought to yourself ‘Man, this would be so much better if it had a Discovery Channel personality…and bears!”. Well, if you have then today is your day as Survival Run with Bear Grylls has landed on Windows Phone 8.

For those of you who don’t know, Bear Grylls is one of those survival experts most known for his hit TV show “Man vs. Wild." He’s also a popular meme on the internets. This game, Survival Run with Bear Grylls, has been on iOS and Android for quite some time, and it still receives updates on occasion. The studio behind it though, Floor 84 Games, has now released it for Windows Phone users.

The game is what you expect: you start off from a cave and are chased by a bear. You then have to take turns, jump and dodge obstacles, lest you become lunch for said carnivore. The game also boasts these features:

  • Simple controls and an exciting gameplay mechanic.
  • Play as your favorite survival expert, Bear Grylls.
  • Unlock 9 awesome Bear Grylls characters.
  • Rescue Choppers, Power Paragliders, Jetpacks and more!

I’m not going to lie; it’s at once both dumb and fun. It feels exactly like Temple Run, but with bears and a super drab background (the world is solid green!). So if you like those games, then you’ll like this, even if it’s not the most original creation.

Survival Run with Bear Grylls is a free download and only 26 MB in size, so feel free to give it a spin. You can find it here in the Store.

Thanks, Mohamed A. and Usama J., for the tips

And isn't available here in Brazil. It has a Brazilian certificate in the store but the developer forgot to "check" Brazil in the country list. This are occurring so often ultimately. :(

Even though I'm not in Brazil, I appreciate all the advocacy work you do for WP in Brazil.  MS ought to put you on the payroll!  Keep it up!

Now on all three major ecosystems: Time to drunk my own piss.
And of course, don't forget your vitamin C!!! Or stripping naked and swimming through frigid waters.
