John Mad Run Cheats And Tips
How to get the Laser and grab more coins in this addictive endless running game.
There are literally hundreds of endless running games for iPhone and iPad, the majority of which play exactly the same. Enter John Mad Run, a free-to-play runner starring a bearded hero interested in slaughtering evildoers and collecting as many gold coins as his virtual pockets can carry. While not the most complex game, you'll need to make split second decisions to keep John alive. Stuck? Check out these life-saving tips.
How do I play John Mad Run?
The developer(s) at Happymagenta divide the screen into three platforms. John moves on his own, and you swipe Up or Down on the left side of the screen to jump in those directions. The idea is to avoid obstacles like lava, laser beams, explosives and buzz saws at all costs.
How do I kill enemies in John Mad Run?
Tap the right side of the screen to fire John's weapon, or swipe up/down/left/right to deliver a sword slash. We recommend using the sword with enemies at close range, since it is sometimes difficult to quickly squeeze off a shot.
What types of enemies are in John Mad Run?
One guy fires a pistol shortly after seeing John, while another stabs him up close. The trickiest by far is the shield-carrying enemy. You know he's about to appear because of the exclamation point that appears on the right. The icon will follow John's movements for a little while, and you should wait until the last possible second to move out of harm's way. Just make sure you don't accidentally hit a laser or buzz saw in the process.
How do I refill John's health in John Mad Run?
John does not have a traditional health bar. You'll see his face on the bottom of the screen, and the bloodier it looks, the worse he is. On that note, look for the occasional heart while running.
What weapons can I unlock in John Mad Run?
Liking Happymagenta on Facebook will in theory unlock the Laser B.A.86 and the Shashka sword, though we had trouble doing this. The game continuously asked us to log into our Facebook accounts to verify the like, despite us being logged in; not sure if this is a bug or a problem on our end.
That said, you can pay 3,000 coins to unlock the Laser and 1,000 to acquire the sword. In addition, it costs 1,000 coins to upgrade John's shotgun.
How do I get more gold coins in John Mad Run?
Stay alive and actively go after coins. Avoid enemies if possible and focus on grabbing loot. It's common sense, but the longer John stays alive, the more opportunities you have to stock up on coins.
