Tron Run/r is a runner platformer and racing hybrid, but rather than take on qualities from popular endless runner games, such as Temple Run, it's more similar to the Bit.Trip Runner games in gameplay and structure (minus the music and rhythm mechanics). It combines that series' exciting, fast-paced platforming and maneuvering with the sleek visual aesthetics of Tron, providing a stylish and exhilarating sense of speed and arcade action. I recently got the chance to play the game and it does well at creating a high-speed experience that's as engrossing as it is enjoyable, which underscores its otherwise formulaic first impression. You can see footage of the game above.

Running isn't the only activity you can do in Tron Run/r, it also has a Light Cycle mode. This acts as a time-trial where you race down a digital highway, zipping through arches that add time to your countdown clock, as you try to make it to the finish line in time.

For a closer look at both of Tron Run/r's modes, you can click through the images below.

Tron Run/r sells for $20 and is available for download on PSN and Steam. An Xbox One version is scheduled to come out sometime soon.

The game was first announced at the 2015 Game Awards. It features music from EDM musicians Giorgio Moroder and Raney Shockne, and a variety of remixes also included in the game were written by artists, such as Darkstar, Bibio, Joywave, Autechre, and Plaid.

How about TRON 3 instead fucking Disney

Cheap (as in development quality terms). Not at all the kind of game Tron fans have been hoping for or plan to buy. If there was some crazy open world Tron game similar to Deus Ex meets Mass Effect taking place in modern and futuristic computing technologies people would be all over it.

... but an endless runner is what you get. A game that's the equivalent to a DLC pre-order bonus. Lazy effort.

Even as a Huge Tron fanatic, I like this game but it should've been a PS Vita game to have fun on the go...PS4 deserves a better tron game, an Evolution sequel for example.

Speaking of deserving, we Tron fans need:

- 2ND season of Tron Uprising

-Tron Legacy Sequel

This does not look like it's worth $20

@rosinmonkekyx17: Isn't price of a game decided upon by factors like product cost, demand, and market trends? Maybe your eyes and mind are playing tricks on you. Maybe the "looks" don't explain the cost. Reading the article makes it seems like much of the production costs might come from the soundtrack.

@magnusstorm: Triple A games are always $60

It's a fact

Product cost? Must be a cheap product if it's selling at $20

Demand? Must be a low demand if it's selling at $20

If looks don't determine the price, what does? Content...content, although this isn't true as Star Wars Battlefront should be worth $20 if it was based on content

I don't get how one of the best movies of all time spawned the worst sequel of all time and some of the worst video games ever.

@JustinGoSka: Really, Legacy is my favorite movie, I still watch after so many years and it has the same effect on me as the first time, to me is just bloody perfect, and the Tron Evolution was nowhere near the worst video games ever, it was actually quite fun specially how it connects the dots, one fo the final chapters when you have to race down in your light cycle from the End of Line club was superb

This reminds me of a game I played on my Packard Bell 486dx.. 66mhz beast.

Am I in the minority when I say that I hated their last movie? It had the potential to be so good too...

@syntaxkt: No, you're the majority. Tran Legacy was the worst I've ever seen in my life and I'm sure almost any fan of the original feels the same way.

@drocdoc: Normally I wouldn't, but this looks really fun, and it clearly has more work put into it than the typical runner does.
