Details

The following changes have been made by the upgrades. This is a more detailed list than above including additional comments and player observations. For the most recent version, please refer to the main article, Lara Croft: Relic Run.

Game-play

  • With the release of v 1.5.68 (simultaneous to the release of the Mountain Pass level) the game-play has slightly changed:
  • The Endless Mode for each location has to be unlocked first by playing its first 20 of the 40 levels.
  • Instead of just running the endless mode, Lara now has to master 40 levels in each location. Every odd level is a challenge, where Lara e.g. has to find a certain amount of Coins or run a certain distance to earn Stars. After earning at least one star she is allowed to advance to the next level. In every even level a relic can be found. As before, she has to collect clues to find these and finally find and collect the relic. After finding the relic, the next level is unlocked.
Afterwards the player had to finish at least 20 levels in Jungle Temple to unlock Desert Ruins, but in-game money could be used to unlock it earlier.
The same method of progression has been implemented for the Mountain Pass region: At least 20 Levels in the Desert Ruins region have to be finished successfully to unlock it.

Additional Levels

  • The Mountain Pass levels have been released on 14 October 2015 with game version 1.5.68.
