Crash Bandicoot: On the Run! announced its arrival on Android and iOS mobile devices. Now, players can get this game for free on respective app stores.

The game is being developed and published by King through an exclusive license with Activision. If you’re a long-time mobile gamer, that name should be familiar. King is a gaming studio that’s known mainly for match-three games. Its best-known title is none other than Candy Crush Saga.

These include collection runs, time trials, crafting, and even base building.

Players should also be happy to know that regular updates are set and would introduce, among others, new cosmetic items plus classic and creative new skins.

As a mobile game, it’s not surprising to learn that it includes social features like Teams and Survival Runs. Players can form a team with friends or chat with other Bandicoot fans and group together.

While Crash Bandicoot: On the Run! is indeed a new game, it’s set in the Wumpa Archipelago where fans of the franchise are sure to recognize many of the regions.
