Adorable animals get ripped to shreds in dirtyBit's Fun Run: Multiplayer Race, a free-to-play iOS and Android game where up to four people can slaughter each other en route to the finish line. Matches are brutal, and it's easy to go from first to last if you're not careful. That said, our Fun Run: Multiplayer Race cheats and tips guide will keep you alive, at least for a little while.

Use Power-Ups

As you make a mad dash across the 2D landscape, be on the lookout for boxes scattered throughout the environment. Inside is one of eight power-ups that'll give you that all-important edge. The list includes bear traps to rip opponents, saw blades that chop them in two, a speed boost, a lightning strike that shocks enemies and a protective shield that makes you invincible for six seconds. Just run into a box to pick up one of these items, then press the left button to activate it. Do this quickly, as you'll want to use as many power-ups as you can.

Tip: Saw blades ricochet off walls.

Climb Up Walls

Did you just fall into a pit? No worries. Repeatedly press the jump button and your character will jump up the wall.

Tip: Once you reach the finish line, you can quit the current race without receiving a penalty.

Watch Out For Random Objects

The developers littered each course with items designed to impede your progress. Every second counts in Fun Race, so keep your eyes on the track at all times.

Tip: The heart power-up lets players absorb one hit.

Practice Against The Computer

Hone your skills against the artificial intelligence in Practice mode, where the computer is almost as ruthless as pesky humans.

Tip: Excessive jumping slows you down a bit.
Watch Player Positioning

During a race, the game displays all player positions along the bottom of the screen. Watching it is a great way to see how far in front or behind you are.

Memorize Tracks

The more you know about a track, the easier it'll be for you to win. This goes hand-in-hand with learning to place bear traps where you think other players will land following a jump.
