In The 3-D Battles of World Runner, gamers assume the role of Jack, a cyborg whose mission is to save the eight worlds of Solar System #517 that have been invaded by alien creatures, led by the mysterious Drax.
The only skill available to Jack is the ability to jump. It is necessary to make sure he jumps over the countless gaps in the ground and the many aliens that launch themselves in his direction. You must reach the end of each world within the time indicated at the bottom of the screen.
The graphics are quite impressive, considering this is a NES title and are very similar to the classic SEGA game Space Harrier. The game is viewable in 3-D with a pair of 3-D glasses included in the original box. The sound is standard NES fare and complements the game well.
