Controls of the Game
The controls of the game on a PC are slightly different from the controls of your smartphone version. To turn left and right while running, use the left and right keys respectively on your keyboard. Similarly, use the up arrow key to jump and down arrow key to slide. However, in order to tilt left and right you will have to use the keys “Z” and “X” respectively. There are some versions that also allow you to use mouse pad or mouse to control the character. However, controlling with the mouse can be little tricky as you need to bring back the mouse in position before using it again.
Why Play on PC?
The game is much easier to play on a PC for many reasons. Firstly, you get to enjoy the graphic details of the game on a much larger screen. The bigger screen of your PC allows you to see a clearer view of the oncoming obstacles that sometimes become unnoticeable in the smaller screens of smartphones and tablets. Professional gamers would also argue that it is much easier to use keyboard keys for controls rather than the fidgety touch sensors of your phone. Follow the instructions and download this epic game on your PC now to enjoy running endlessly.
