Angry Gran Run is an endless runner released on iOS and Android in 2014. Developed by Ace Viral, it stars a comically irate grandma who rampages through city streets mowing down obstacles in her path.
The objective is to run as far as possible while collecting coins, power-ups, and completing missions. You swipe left and right to change lanes avoiding oncoming traffic, construction barriers, cops and more hazards.
Power-ups like spinach for speed boosts, walking sticks for shoving ability, or football helmets for temporary invincibility add chaotic strategy. Cars, trucks, and buses will flatten gran if you don’t swerve properly.
The ragdoll physics when gran inevitably gets clobbered provides slapstick humor. Upgrades are available for gran’s speed, coin magnetism and other attributes. Quests provide specific objectives.
The exaggerated cartoon violence and absurd premise injected humor into the crowded endless runner genre. Gran’s sarcastic quips and no-nonsense attitude made her an unlikely mobile gaming star.
For those seeking a funny dash of mayhem with their endless running, Angry Gran Run satisfies with its simple format layered with colorful character and unlockable depth. Its popularity spawned numerous sequels expanding gran’s rampage.
