QUADRUN gameplay footage by MightySquirrel (aka KEILBACA) for those who are NOT familiar with this game.

For this round I decided to share this video and help less experienced Quadrun players therefore.

Thanks Keilbaca, I didn't know that game. The gameplay is just the right amount of weird, it got cool voices and a trippy rainbow effect. TRIPPY FUNKY STUFF! And I love me some trippy funky stuff.

8700

 

I wasn't ready for the brats.

I'll get in some play time and get a score posted later today, but in the meantime for those who have no idea what is going on in this very unique game here's a video from The No Swear Gamer where he explains all the gameplay mechanics and scoring system in Quadrun. Hope it helps! :)

Even with the video I can't figure out how to play this game. Nothing I do seems to move anything on the screen.

I had never played Quadrun before today, but ever since I tried it this afternoon I've had a really hard time putting it down! I'm seriously digging this game, even if those brats are hard as all get out to hit with any degree of consistency. Still, this is definitely becoming one of those "just one more game" titles for me. :)

 

Quadrun (B/B Difficulty, Default Settings): 42,190

It's probably because it's the movement are a bit counter intuitive and when you wiggle the joystick you only get chaos (or your joystick isn't plugged in). You control the little square that starts in the bottom path. In any path you are, you can never go further or nearer from the center, you can only move across it (left/right in the top and bottom pathes. up/down in the side pathes). If you touch a wall, you get teleported to the other path. If you push the direction towards the opposite path, you get teleported to the center of it.

 

Shoot the bad guys in the top and bottom pathes, catch your bullets after shooting them or you lose a life and grab the little piggy that comes out of the bush in the middle when he tries to escape.

First time I ever played this game is today... So far... I am not good at it.

My brain keeps wanting me to move up when I should go down and down when I should go up. C'mon brain! I just can't move the correct way.

So far:

Vocelli: 1700

Pic later when I do better.

Otherwise good game!

1,200. I'm not at that point yet where I consider this a fun game or even a good game. It just seems unnecessarily complicated. but I'll keep trying.

I took off my question because I read the instructions and found the answer.
