Lara Croft Relic Run Launches Worldwide

Lara Croft Relic Run has now been released worldwide for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. The game is free (with optional in-app purchases). If, like me, you don't own a compatible mobile device, it's possible to download the Android version from the Google Play Store and run it on your Windows PC or Macintosh using BlueStacks.*

The game seems simple enough on the surface but it can be fiendishly difficult. My friend Kelly from The Archaeology of Tomb Raider nailed it when she tweeted, "Why do they call #RelicRun an 'endless runner'? My runs always end. Often pretty quickly. :-)"

To help take the sting out of Lara's many inevitable in-game deaths, Survivor Reborn has announced a competition for the best ragdoll death screenshots. Head on over to the Survivor Reborn Facebook Page for details.
