Review of Run 1
Basically Run 1 is another running game but it has distinguished itself for its uniqueness as it helps to boost agility of brain. Letís materialize what we are talking aboutÖ Run 1 is generally written in flash, in SWF format which enables the players to play it through their own web browser such as Chrome, Opera etcÖ In addition it is small size which guarantees low bandwidth usage. Letís move away from technical stuff.
Run 1 comes with pretty beautiful GUI (graphical user interface). In general, graphical sector of Run 1 is what somewhat determined its success. In addition, itís so simple to navigate in the game: with your mouse you can quickly jump through different sectors of the game. Settings part of this game is damn awesome! It enables you to switch among three graphical levels: low, medium and high. Also you can adjust FPS here which stands for Frame(s) per second: the higher, the faster the motion is. In addition there are two selectable checkboxes which allow you to choose fast or slow playing mode. If you donít like the music you can turn it off with a simple click on Mute button. This fantastic bar also lets you set controls youself.
