Jay and his girl­friend May’s plans for a quiet Sun­day pic­nic in the for­est go very wrong when a creep­y­look­ing crea­ture with glow­ing eyes and a dra­matic cape ma­te­ri­alises, kid­naps May and dis­ap­pears again, chal­leng­ing Jay to at­tempt a res­cue be­fore shoot­ing off. That’s what our hero sets out to do, only paus­ing to note that this would be a fairly weak ex­cuse for some plat­form-based ac­tion if this were a videogame.

Trap Run­ner is a cute-look­ing but tough game, al­though not frus­trat­ingly so and it does ease the player into things over the first cou­ple of lev­els be­fore the more de­vi­ous en­emy and item place­ments start ap­pear­ing. Af­ter that, there’s lots of pixel-ac­cu­rate jump­ing and mon­ster stomp­ing to do as the level de­signs tempt the player with items – some of which are nec­es­sary on stages with quo­tas to be met – in hard-tore­ach, pre­car­i­ous lo­ca­tions.
