Angry Gran – General Review
Angry Gran is an endless running game where you play as an angry grandma and escape from the asylum you have been kept in!
This game allows you to run through the streets of several different places and aiding granny in her escape from the asylum and the agent Fred. Also, it challenges users to avoid some obstacles and smash others, collecting coins while also fleeing through the streets.
Like most games, When you open it for the very first time, the tutorial option pops up where you get to learn the basics. Once you start the game, your task is to run and jump to avoid all the obstacles you find on your way, since those obstacles can stop you from getting out of the mental asylum.
The streets are full of obstructions, where few are from the real world such as parked cars, clothesline, barriers, holes in the middle of the road, and some more. And others are delusional, probably existing only in your head like a UFO that landed in the middle of the street with three little green aliens, a giant rolling soda can, a big whale, and a green dinosaur.
No matter what sort of obstacles you have, you really need to jump, slide, or move left/right over every single one because otherwise, it’s game over for you. When you play this game on the PC, you just have to use AD and arrow keys to move by moving left and right or jumping up and down to overcome obstacles.
Another interesting thing in this game is that you can collect coins on your way. Collecting these gold coins can let you purchase all sorts of upgrades such as double jumps, sprint, invincibility, coin multipliers, resurrection, etc. and funny costumes/characters.
How To Play
The controls of this game are divided into two separate parts on the keyboard with the Arrow keys and AD keys:
Press Up Arrow key to jump
Press Down Arrow key to slide.
Press A,D keys to move from left to right in order to avoid obstacles or kick a punk guy.
Press Left and Right Arrow keys to take the street corners.
Attractive and eye-catching graphics.
Hop on an endless path with unique characters.
Gifts and in-game coins to buy characters.
Easy to understand
There are the mission, daily tasks, store, costume and gear icon in the main menu. So let’s examine them:
Costume Button: In order to change your costume, you will need coins. However, some costumes only require things to unlock which you can get while running. So you have to collect the necessary number, and after that, you can unlock some costumes.
Store: Here, you will see power-ups that are not automatically turned on. So you have to collect coins, and then manually turn them on by upgrading them for the first time.
Gear icon: Under the gear icon, you can customise sound volume, image colour, and lean sensitivity. Since this game is straightforward and easy to access, it doesn’t have to have complicated settings. So you can change the device’s sensitivity in terms of tilting it. Other running games don’t have this feature, so this is an added feature of this game!
Graphics and Music
The game has unique 3D graphics, but not realistic (it can be suitable for my children). The sound and music are pretty unique, i.e. the granny will just shout whenever she bash punks.
Besides that, the music is vibrant, just like the game itself. The sound effects are also unique. Moreover, the choices of colours in the game are excellent since they set the mood of being lively. It is not like the other games with dull and dark colours, so this is a good point.

So, what is my final verdict?
Angry Gran is one of the best free 3D running games! If you love running and simulation games, then you will love this cool endless running game. This game is also one of the most popular games out there which are suitable for everyone.
Angry Gran can be played while you are bored and even in public transport or somewhere. So for me, this game is a must-have!
