Please play game in full screen mode if using controls (arrow keys) scrolls your browser window.

**We suggest using Firefox if Chrome disagrees with running this game! Full screen can also make this game easier**

Little Red Running Hood is an endless runner with a "switch" twist! Keep Red away from the wolf, but not too far! Collect apples to speed up and anvils to slow Red down. If the big bad wolf gets too far away then you won't be able to switch and clear the obstacles (logs) out of the way. It's all in the timing, how far can you get?

Right-Arrow: Switch Red->Wolf position
Up-Arrow: Jump
Down-Arrow: Duck
LMB to click start button/try again - Right arrow key can also be used in place of LMB

Our main inspirations from childhood memories for this challenge!
Kindergarten activities - paper-craft (aesthetic)

Finished in 72 hours. We hope you enjoy where our childhood memories took us.

Simplified, unique style of endless runner games. The game is alright in it's own way. It passes with my vote.

I don't get it, the apple and the anvil are so close together, how do you get one and not the other? I keep getting "Indecision" and eventually losing. The other problem is, why isn't there a keyboard to restart the game? Why do I have to reach all the way over to my mouse and then all the way back to the keyboard? Kind of a shame, since I think there MIGHT be an interesting idea in here somewhere...

Thanks for taking the time to comment :)
You can decide which item you need by timing the jump (up arrow) or duck (down arrow) when just in front of the pair of items. Timing is very important :)
As mentioned in the description you can use the keyboard to restart the game.
"LMB to click start button/try again - Right arrow key can also be used in place of LMB" - I hope that helps.

This is art style is adorable! Unique mechanic of having to slow down so you can swap between the wolf and LRR. Very polished simple fun and a great Mini LD entry!

Thanks Adam, appreciate the love :)

it isn't a very good idea for a game that relies on the up and down key to function, to cause the screen to scroll when you press said key.

OutbackPixels responds:

Thanks for the feedback daggerpro! Popping the game into full screen will stop this from happening.
