This game is based on a stick figure who has to jump over and roll under obstacles in a variety of combinations and that sums up the game play in Line Runner. But as easy as it might sound the game throws some real challenges at the players. The combination of jumps and rolls that you have to make get really challenging with each passing stage and there are ten stages in total. The controls provided for in this game are in the form of two buttons placed on the sides: the one on the left is used for rolling while the key on the left is for jumping over obstacles.
It takes time getting used to the game and you will find yourself being killed, when obstacles hit you in the face or legs, often. The stages or tracks in the game are enough for hours of fun and excitement. At any point of time in this game, you will not find yourself easing on the controls; the difficulty just keeps increasing.
If in the rarest of chances you finish all ten tracks then you have the random tracks that throws obstacles at you in combinations that are not in the ten tracks, making it extremely fun as well as difficult to get through without getting killed.
The game is available absolutely free for a limited time tough, so make the best of this offer.
