Razor Run Cheats And Tips
Our Razor Run guide will get you off to a flying start.
Razor Run is a fun little combination of the shooter and endless runner genres, with its swell gameplay mechanics and fast-moving graphics. You'll also have access to power-ups that will help continue your run, whether you want to activate a shield for your ship, or use your blasters to clear out mines.
Here are some tips to help you get a new high score in your next run.
How do the power-ups work in Razor Run?
There are two main ones you'll utilize - blasters and a shield. You'll be able to use these as energy builds up in the green and blue meters at the bottom of the screen. A shield will protect your ship from mines and flames for several seconds, although your game can still end if you run into solid objects such as pipes or walls.
You use your blasters to shoot mines out of your way. Sometimes these static defenses block the only route out of the room, and so you'll want to keep some firepower back as it takes a while to recharge. Believe us, the last thing you want to do is face a space core - which pops up on occasion - without your blasters charged up.
How do I avoid walls and pipes in Razor Run?
The game is set within a 3D perspective, so you always have a clear view of what's coming up. Try to plan your next move accordingly, and use the blasters in case you need to clear a mine out of your way.
There are times that the game will move very fast though, and so you'll need to keep a close eye as to what's ahead. Fortunately, the controls work well enough that you should have no problem maneuvering up and down out of harm's way.
It may take a few tries to get used to Razor Run's setup, but stick with it, and you'll get used to it in no time.
What other power-ups are available in Razor Run?
Along with your shield and blasters, you'll also have access to temporary power-ups that help you collect coins more easily. A clock-slowing Bullet Time effect makes it easier to get around and grab everything, and the Coin Magnet automatically sucks cash towards you. These powers only last a few seconds each - although you can prolong their life in the upgrades menu. When you spot these on a level, don't hesitate to pick them up.
What weapons are available in Razor Run?
You'll start with a routine set of blasters, but as you collect coins you can purchase heavier firepower, including Burst Fire, which increases the range of your firing. Machine Gun gives you more shots than your typical blasters, while Laser Cannon provides a long stream of fire that can eliminate multiple mines at once. The cost of these weapons ranges from 1,000 to 5,000 coins, and each one can be powered up to last even longer.
If you prefer to stick with your regular blasters, you can increase their power and capacity as well, starting at 250 coins and rising with each new upgrade.
What upgrades are available in Razor Run?
There are four in all. The first, Power Collect, makes it easier for you to charge your shield during your run. It starts at 250 coins to power-up, and increases from there.
The second, Ammo Collect, fills your blaster capacity quicker than normal. You can start at 250 coins to get a ten percent increase, and pay a little more to make it stronger.
Next up is Ammo Use. This reduces the energy requirement of your blaster, making it easier to refill. Ammo Collect is a little more practical, but it never hurts to expand this ability as well. It starts at 250 coins for 10 percent reduction.
Finally, there's Top Speed, which decreases your overall Ship Speed. This is vital to your runs, as you do move very quickly through each chasm. It starts at 250 coins for a 5 percent reduction, and goes up from there.
Do I need to pay for anything in Razor Run?
You'll earn plenty of coins over the course of each run - and it doesn't cost you anything to go on new runs - but there is an option to buy more directly through in-app purchase if you want. Cost ranges from $.99 for 10,000 coins, all the way up to $9.99 for a million coins. You can also pay an extra $.99 to remove those annoying pop-up ads, if they drive you crazy (and they might).
These purchases are optional, however, and you should be able to get a good amount of mileage out of the game without dropping a dime.
