Beat the competition in Fun Run -- Multiplayer Race

Race against the computer or your Facebook friends.

Though this game can't decide if it wants to be for kids or adults, it definitely lives up to its name. Fun Run - Multiplayer Race is a side-scrolling racer that lets you do unspeakably awful things to its cute characters to win. This game is enjoyable enough racing against the computer, but really shines once you start racing against your friends or people worldwide.

To start the Fun Run - Multiplayer Race game, you need to register. Luckily, you don't need to give the game anything more than a username and you can sync with your Facebook for easy signup, too. Signing in through Facebook lets you challenge your friends if you like. Even if you don't join through Facebook, you can still find a game quickly through the lobby. Each race gives you a furry critter that you send through one of many obstacle courses. There are a handful of gory power-ups that give you an advantage. You'll find razors that cut your cute avatar in half and boxing gloves that punch it in the face. Sadly, most of the power-ups are more helpful if you're in the lead -- so if you don't take first fast, you're likely to lose. When you do win, you'll earn coins that can buy special gear for your creature.

Fun Run - Multiplayer Race offers the combination of sugary cuteness with blood and guts, which can be hilarious, but it also might be too much for some. If that juxtaposition appeals to you, it's packed in an exciting, challenging package in this game. Fun Run has tons of replay value thanks to an online active community, but you might want to think twice before letting younger kids play it.
