About Run For Peace:

Run For Peace is set entirely in the Middle East and is a linear run-and-jump game where the main character, Salim, spreads peace by running through the Middle East. He starts in Saudi Arabia and must cross through a variety of countries, ending in Algeria.

This one-touch game’s objective is to help Salim overcome a multitude of obstacles -- electricity shocks, oil spills, bombs, missiles and even flying shisha pipes -- by jumping over or avoiding them. Salim's ultimate goal is to complete a Peace Sign in the game by running through each country successfully. Once a country has been crossed safely, part of the Peace Sign will light up. Cross all countries safely, and achieve peace in the Middle East!
