Noyan the runner is a 2D platformer where the player runs through a colorful landscape, jumping from platform to platform and collecting stars to increase the score. In each level there is a key that must be collected to unlock the end of level portal and thus accessing the next level. The game consists of 10 different levels divided in two different groups (level 1-5 and level 6-10). At the end of each group of levels an enemy boss must be faced and destroyed to advance. Noyan health is represented by a green bar just above the player. Every time the player collides with an enemy the energy decreases and when it reaches zero a life is lost. Falling outside the screen causes the loss of a life.
From a graphical standpoint the game is colorful and the main character interesting and well animated. The enemies, on the other hand, are quite anonymous and don’t fit very well in the game theme. The sound is quite repetitive but it can be turned off. The difficulty level is on the easy side. The game challenge starts very easy and only at level 4 begins to ramp up. The pinnacle of the challenge is reached at level 8, where the player must descend in a ravine while avoiding the usual obstacles. Overall, also for the possibility to continue the game from the last accessed level, it can be completed in less than one hour.
