For a long time Cornelius has been working at the local comic books stand shop. For about as long, he's been daydreaming about how somehow, someday, he'd become a Hero. After all, wasn't what the fortune cookie was saying, right? ... right? Fortunately the Aliens invasion would come just in time to provide with this opportunity...

Don't Run is a breathtaking, retro sci-fi, combat based, funny sidescroller with tons of content.

Anyway, what more can you ask for than running with a plasma sword, slicing-up invading aliens?
