There’s certainly no shortage of infinite runners on Windows and Windows Phone. We’ve seen official IPs launch on both stores from not only the likes of Disney, but also familiar brands. There are hidden gems like Angry Gran Run that provide hours of entertainment. This popular game is already available on Windows Phone and competitor mobile platforms, but now we can also add Windows 8 to that list.
In Angry Gran Run, much like the Windows Phone 8 version, you’re tasked with helping ol’ granny escape the Angry Asylum, ran by Fred the agent. Fitting in nicely with the festive season, you’re set to enjoy a rather jolly sprint avoiding presents, kicking youths and sliding below (or jumping over) obstacles as you attempt to progress as far as possible.
Just like other games within the familiar genre, you’re able to upgrade Angry Gran with optional upgrades to better your chances of besting your friends – there are also really humorous characters to choose from, including a gingerbread man. The game itself is again free, but you do have the opportunity to spend up to $79.99 on the 2,200,00 mega pack to boost your account.
Controls will feel just right with simple gestures required to move gran around corners and to activate a slide or jump to avoid obstacles. The aim of the game is to travel as far as possible, while collecting coins on the way. This in-game currency can be used for the optional store purchases (it’s not required to use real money, should you not wish to do so). Did we mention that there are aliens as well?
You can download Angry Gran Run from the Windows Store. Note that this game requires Windows 8.1 to run. Let us know just how far you’ve managed to progress in your travels with Angry Gran.
