Free Endless Running Game for Windows 8: Spicy Run

Spicy Run is a running game app for Windows 8 and 8.1 where you play as a chicken nugget from McDonald’s. In the game, you have to make the chicken nugget jump over obstacles, collect power ups like spices and chilies, coins, etc. The game gets over when you hit any obstacle, as you fall off the track which is actually in the air. The game has a gripping background music which plays in a continuous loop, and the controls of the game are very easy. Simply use your arrow buttons (left and right) to move towards the left and right directions, and use the spacebar button to jump. It’s important to note that for devices with only touch displays and no external keyboards, this game is useless as it’s NOT touch friendly. Now that’s something I want the developer to improve upon in a future update.

Spicy Run has great smooth graphics, and requires an internet connection to run to sync with the online leaderboard.
