Krrish 3: The Game is a free running-based game connected with the Indian superhero film, Krrish 3. The player controls a masked hero, guiding him through a dangerous city using a series of swipes to make him run, jump and climb. Each mission has an objective (like "Get to the chopper!") to be accomplished within a time limit.
The gameplay is easy to learn, as is generally desirable from this sort of pick-up-and-play mobile game. While the controls are easy to master, the main character is given a reasonably broad range of moves, allowing some flexibility. The game fits into the same general genre as other addictive platforms like Holey Hell and RUN.
Crystals to grab, hazards to dodge
As you play through each level, you will have to avoid a range of hazards from deadly drops to enemies with guns. If you manage to make it to the end, you will be awarded points based on a number of factors, from the time it took you to complete the mission to the number of crystals you grabbed during the game.
There is a degree of replay value due to the points system, as you can go back and beat your earlier scores.
Captures the feel of a superhero film
The game does a thorough job of capturing the feel of superhero films: even though the gameplay itself is strictly 2D, the cityscape is 3D and has a cinematic feel. The choice of music is also appropriate to the mood.
Regardless of whether or not you have seen the film that Krrish 3: The Game is based upon, anyone who enjoys superhero films should appreciate the way that the game recreates the genre in an interactive form.
An addictive platformer
With a heavy emphasis on old-fashioned speed and skill, Krrish 3: The Game harks back to an earlier era of quick, accessible and addictive platform games. While not revolutionary, it succeeds in emulating both classic platformers and the film that inspired it.
