Running With Rifles gets WWII expansion set in Pacific

Oh hi, Running With Rifles [official site]. It’s been a while, huh? I had assumed you’d packed up your duffel bag, slung your gun over your shoulder, and sprinted off into the sunset. Turns out you’ve been digging into the Iwo Jima sands and all the other Pacific islands too, recreating the second World War in your own top-down cartoonish way. So, when’s that Pacific…

Early No Longer: Running With Rifles Is Out

How quickly moderately paced they grow. It seems like only yesterday that Jim was rushing over with news of top-down tactical shooter Running With Rifles [official site], like an expectant duck.

Endearing Wargeneering: Running With Rifles

Running With Rifles is a top-down soldiererer thing inspired by Cannon Fodder, set in large maps with dynamically throbbing battles. You are a tiny man in a big war, and it's…

Every so often - let's say twice a day - somebody calmly reminds me that I wrote about a game at some point in the past and have failed to revisit in order to see how things have changed. Guilty as charged. Oddly that hasn't happened in regards to Running With Rifles, the rather excellent indie squad shooter. It has more in common with Cannon…

Safer Than Shotguns: Running With Rifles

How many of you are still playing Running With Rifles, the murky yet marvellous top-down tactical shooter Jim introduced you to a while back? Unless the answer is most of you, it’s not enough. Maybe you thought the game wouldn’t receive any significant updates for an age. I’m pleased to announce that you were very wrong indeed. So, stand corrected, chin up, and prepare to…

In The Trenches: Running With Rifles

Okay, look, this is a tough one for good screenshots, but nevertheless promising. It's an oddity that I am sure a few of you will be interested in. It's an early version of a game by Modulaatio Games, called Running With Rifles. You can download it on the site there. The game is a top-down, Cannon Fodder-y sort of soldier thing, but on a wide-open…
