Those wanting to take Lara Croft on another adventure, but are too impatient for the upcoming “Rise of the Tomb Raider” can now download “Lara Croft: Relic Run” for their mobile devices, as the game’s publisher, Square Enix have officially released the game worldwide. As the title suggests, “Relic Run” is an infinite runner, similar to the incredibly popular “Temple Run” games that have dominated the mobile spectrum for quite some time now.

While the familiar infinite runner gameplay is definitely in “Lara Croft: Relic Run,” the title does have some notable differences that separate it from other games of the same genre. According to a report from Touch Arcade, players will be bale to take on quite a few bosses, including the classic T-Rex from the first-ever “Tomb Raider” game.

Other aspects from “Tomb Raider” games have also been incorporated into “Relic Run,” like the character’s ability to shoot enemies in acrobatic fashion, along with certain sections where the character must use her slow-motion dives to escape danger. The game even adds sections that haven’t been used in an actual “Tomb Raider” game, like the ability to use vehicles and shoot Velociraptors and escape other threats that might cause harm to Lara Croft, as reported by Pocket Gamer.

Certain parts of the environment can also lead to Lara jumping from wall to wall like a ninja, or a “Prince of Persia,” which definitely adds some variety to the mix. In fact, the environment plays a big role in this “Tomb Raider” spinoff, as it occasionally collapses and gets destroyed from various beasts, so the player always has to keep close attention to the action.

Of course, just like in other games of the genre, the player must swipe to move Lara into the three different lanes to avoid danger and survive for as long as possible. As expected, Lara can collect coins along the way, which can be used to purchase various items in the game’s currency store and even revive Lara should she perish in one of her Relic Runs.

“Lara Croft: Relic Run” is now available worldwide for the Windows Phone, along with iOS and Android devices. Players interested in going on another adventure with Lara now have the option to do so.
