Game Play of this Running game

As you get to the game area, you (as a thief), will start running to the right side, on the roofs of the buildings and the houses. You just have to see that you (the thief), do not fall off the roofs, and also have to maintain your distance from the police officer. The distance you have covered and the gems you have collected will be shown on the upper side of the interface.

You can also throw knives which can bounce back and can hit the police man. If you are able to hit the police man with the knife, he will die. But your game does not end here. After sometime, a new police man will appear and will try to chase you again. Time your jumps so that you can avoid the policemen, and can grab maximum amount of jewels (gems and rubies). Also see that the speed of the police man will also increase as time passes by.


There are also a number of power ups available in the way. Take for example, the wings can increase your speed of running.


The controls are quite easy. You have to use the left click of your mouse to jump. In touch enabled devices, tap any where on the screen to jump.

You can also share the score that you have made, after  the game ends. For that use the cloud-like icon that appears after the game ends.
