Enjoying this one so far, although there are a few bugs.

Does anyone know how to get the crowns mentioned in some missions?

Upgrade higher level coins and drops.
EDIT: Wait... maybe it was the crits that cause it, coz im not sure how crits work in this game.

Thanks for that, I'll try upgrading the criticals then, because I'm just one upgrade away to max the drops and all I get is the green jewels.

Edit: yep, that did the trick! At critical level 1 the goblins start dropping the crowns.

Question + Stats

Hello, all:

Out of curiosity, if you look at the iPad screens, there seems to be a level where the characters are progressing through the snow. However, in the game, after the city, park, and mines, the next level is the city. Has anyone accomplished the "snow" level.

Presently, I am level 13 in this game. I unlocked two of the other characters: the big-boobed girl and the troll. However, I didn't find any major advantages to doing this. If you spend your money on upgrading and leveling up the original character, I think you are better off. Just my opinion.

Lastly, to the reader who is also playing Pitfall, I agree that Pitfall is a slightly better runner game (more skills and items to acquire + patches). However, I would not delete this game because you will eventually get all patches and items in Pitfall, and then can return to this game.

Thanks,

Hi! In one mission you have to grab 20 crowns, but I couldn't find any crowns and information what is a crown. Any ideas?

You need to have the "Criticals" upgrade. Each crit you do makes enemies drop crowns.

Strategy: Run 'n Gun

Hello, all! frisbee10461 here!

Presently, I am a Level-16 character in Run 'n Gun. I love this game. In fact, it will be interesting to see how much time I will still spend on this game, now that Temple Run 2 is to be available.

Anyways, here is what I would recommend to maximize your levelling and enjoyment.

1. It is better to maximize the opening character. First of all, you get extra XP for doing so. Also, when you maximize the magnet item, every time you pick up the magnet, each of the coins are worth THREE TIMES their value.

2. If you are going to buy power ups, the top ones I would recommend are, as follows:

a. Increase gun rate. By doing so, more gold and jewels are released from the goblins.
b. Decrease distance to get green jewels. As a result, you will get more jewels.
c. The one associated with the magnet.
d. The one associated with the ghost.

The other two (kill shot and amount you get when you kill a boss) are OK, but I'm not sure they are worth the investment.

3. Don't get big boobs or the troll (biker dude to buy for 30K). Big boobs goes into a rage when she faces a boss, but if you maximize your opening character, you should be able to kill bosses with the opening character. The troll allows you to bump into one extra obstacle, but if you are good, you should be able to avoid the obstacles.

4. After maximizing the opening character, buy and maximize the ogre (the one for 50k).

5. For quick coin generation, after maximizing the magnet power up, play the city level only, crash, and repeat. Not much fun, but you get a lot of coins quickly.

Just found out today, the snow level seems to be used exclusively for the "weekend" missions!
